  • Reggie McNeal, The Present Future (Jossey-Bass, San Francisco, CA, 2003), p. 4.) citing youth ministry specialist Dawson MacAlister T. C. Pinkney (Vice-President of Southern Baptist Convention) reports that 70% of teenagers involved in church youth groups stop attending church within two years of their high school graduation. (T.C. Pinkney, Report to the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee, Nashville, Tennessee, September 18, 2001). In another study from the Southern Baptist Council on Family Life, they found 88 percent of the children raised in evangelical homes leave church at the age of 18, never to return. (Southern Baptist Council on Family Life report to Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention, 2002, www.sbcannualmeeting.net/sbc02/newsroom/newspage.asp?ID=261) George Barna (Researcher) Revolution (Tyndale House Publishers, Carol Stream, IL, 2005), p. 48-49)George Barna (Researcher) www.barna.org/barna-update/article/16-teensnext-gen/147-most-twentysomethings-put-christianity-on-the-shelf-following-spiritually-active-teen-years
  • Marriage and the HomeMatthew 19 – a pronouncement is made regarding marriage, with a promiseMarriage is a fleeting institution, because it is a picture…of God’s love for his people. It will culminate in God’s eternal and intimate marriage to his Bride, the church and there will no longer be marriage. Its purpose will be accomplished. Our marriage will not be to one another…it will be to the most High. Satan knows he cannot defeat the promise of God, so he will direct his attacks relentlessly on the objects of God’s warning, the home.This can be greatly effective, however and cause great damage to his Bride and her temporal purposes because a strong home is essential to the strength of our churches…and with regard to matters of faith and many others…home is where life is making up its mind.
  • The Great Awakening – 3 periods of rapid and dramatic religious revival throughout the western world. Widespread revivals led by evangelical Protestant ministersa sharp increase in interest in religiona profound sense of guilt and redemptiona jump in evangelical church membershipformation of new religious movements and denominations. Earliest of the awakenings – Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield – didn’t just want people’s intellectual engagement, they wanted a response of the heart, for salvation and life change. At the tail end of the third awakening were such notable men as Charles Haddon Spurgeon, D. L. Moody, A. B. Simpson, and the 9 year revival in Los Angeles in the early 1900’s on Azusa Street.
  • Sociologists refer to the grandchildren of this generation as the Greatest Generation. They were spiritually alive, personally committed and tested. This generation had parents who fought in World War 1 and grandparents who saw the power of God. The Greatest Generation refers to those who were born roughly from 1916 to 1924. DO WE HAVE ANY GREATEST GENERATION PEOPLE HERE TODAY? This is the generation who survived the great depression as young people or parents, and fought in World War 2 (also called the G.I. Generation)Billy GrahamYouth for ChristBible Schools – from 1921 to 1947 there was a new Bible School started virtually every year in the Prairie Provinces of CanadaCampus Crusade, Navigators Church plantsChristian camps Only downfall…they were the parents of the Baby Boomers
  • Before the Boomers though is a quiet group who were born from 1925 to 1945 They are called the Silent Generation quiet, hardworking people who focused on getting things done and advancing their careersNo US President has come from the Silent Generation (John McCain tried)Parents of Gen X’ers
  • Baby Boomers 1946-1960 described variously as a &quot;shockwave&quot; and as &quot;the pig in the python.“a demographic bulge which remodeled society as it passed through it. In general, baby boomers are associated with a rejection or redefinition of traditional valuesIn 1993, Time magazine reported on the religious affiliations of baby boomers, stating that about 42% of baby boomers were dropouts from formal religion, a third had never strayed from church, and one-fourth of boomers were returning to religious practice. The boomers returning to religion were &quot;usually less tied to tradition and less dependable as church members than the loyalists. “ (Wikipedia)privilege - affluence
  • Generation X 1961 – 1981 (latest) 13th Generation and Baby Busters. In the U.S. Generation X was originally referred to as the &quot;baby bust&quot; generation because of the drop in the birth rate following the baby boomThe term Generation X was coined in the UK and popularized in 1952 with a study revealign Gen X’ers as a generation of teenagers who &quot;sleep together before they are marriedwere not taught to believe in God as &apos;much&apos;, dislike the Queen, and don&apos;t respect parents&quot;
