What role do Millennials play in Church unity today? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 210

What role do Millennials play in Church unity today?

Brianna and Matthew Penfold join Joshua Noel to discuss the role Millennials play in the modern Church as bridge builders. Millennials often get called the middle child generation, and have seen the world swiftly change in many ways. The gap between Baby Boomers and Gen Z is widened by technology, different understandings of mental health, different ideas of a Christian's role in politics, and more. Millennials have first-hand watched this change happen and can help bring a greater unity to the Church now!


What are millennials in age? What do millennials think about church? What percentage of millennials attend church? What are millennials religious beliefs? What has changed in mental health? How is mental health affecting people? Does church help mental health? How does the church view mental health? Are churches allowed to be involved in politics? What is politics in the Bible? What is church technology? What does the church say about technology?


In this episode, we will:

  • Discuss the changes Millennials have watched occur in the Church
  • Challenge how we think of mental health, technology, and politics
  • Deconstruct the Sunday Morning model of Church
  • Explore how we can bridge the generational gap in the Church better
