Today we are going to send you away… far, far away to read a post by Jonny Craig! Jonny is featured this week on Pastors.com with an article he wrote titled: 5 Things I’ve Learned as a Young Pastor in a Small Church. We know you will enjoy this article and pick up a few ideas for yourself as you manage being a pastor and a human… at the same time!
Jonny represents the best of the millennial generation of church leaders, who are coming of age at what is perhaps the most exciting time to be alive in the history of the world! His ideas, perspectives, and viewpoints are often different than my own (Jeff’s) and mine are different from his. But as we work together, and openly share our hearts and minds on all kinds of different issues in life, ministry, and the society we live in – we make each other better. We learn from each other.
Boomer and millennials make great partners! If you are one or the other, look for a great partner in the other generation – he or she is out there. These two generations complement and complete each other. The Boomers bring experience, passion, maturity, and wisdom – and the millennials bring energy, optimism, creativity, cutting edge perspectives, and a seamless connection to our current society.
The boomers know what worked once, and the millennials know what doesn’t work anymore. Together they make a great team to brainstorm news ways to move forward, and to discover what will work for today!
No matter your age, you should head on over to Pastors.com for some millennial ministry perspectives that are sure to challenge you!
