Review: Reaching Millennials

Reaching Millennials by David Starkreachingmillenials
Reviewed by: Mary Ann Bell
Genre: Church Ministry
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: April 19, 2016

In Reaching Millennials: Proven Methods for Engaging a Younger Generation, David Stark utilizes his decades-long experience in church leadership and church consulting together with information and statistics from interviews and research. The book is easy to read and understand, and Reaching Millennials is not a long read. Stark divides Reaching Millennials into two parts: mindset and methodology.

It was interesting to read how millennials think, and how they relate in society today. David Stark mentions that reaching out to millennials requires a change in some thinking patterns, but I do not think that we need to bow down to every little thing millennials desire. Millennials are a self-seeking generation that need to start thinking about others, therefore there needs to be a compromise of both the older and the newer generations.

Just as some churches need to learn to understand cultural shifts or changes, younger generations need to learn to accept, respect, and learn from tradition and firm doctrine. This aspect is missing in Reaching Millennials.

This was an interesting read, and had some good information, I don’t think that this book alone will help churches grow in numbers with young people. It would be good for pastors, deacons and elders to read so they can get their churches to be welcoming and entertaining for the younger generation.

Rated G: It’s a straight forward book with no violence or language
