4 Essential Keys to Working with Twentysomethings | From #Impact12 Speaker Nicole Unice

It can be daunting to open up your life and your ministry to the next generation. Just when you think you’ve figured out how to run a small group or women’s ministry or even your own meeting, this lively bunch shows up, with energy and enthusiasm, zany ideas and young skin. At times they seem like peers, other times they seem like preschoolers. Pundits say they are entitled and adolescent. Yet regardless of how you feel about the next generation, they are the church of tomorrow and they are the church of today. They are our next pastors, ministry leaders, elders, writers and communicators. Working with them is a biblical mandate, as we are called to commend the works of God to the next generation (Psalm 71:8).

These are godly men and they’re in areas where the need is great, but for a lot of them, it’s just a clumsy execution of their calling. Some of them are making too many leadership mistakes and they’re paying the price for it.
