Who—and What—is Shaping Next Generation Pastors?
VIDEO Linda Stanley posted on 8/9/2011 in Life Stages
Next generation pastors, those under age 40, are leading their churches full-force into multisite ministry, community service, global impact and church planting. Their churches may look different from those of the past but they look to previous generations and each other for guidance. They are less interested in dominating the stage and more likely to share weekend teaching with a team. These young leaders downplay buildings and money, but acknowledge their importance to advance their rapidly growing ministries. Next generation pastors may be moving full steam ahead but they take the time to balance their professional and private lives as well as reaching out to other churches and organizations to increase their impact. In this video, Linda Stanley talks about how many Next Generation Pastors work in multisite churches and how these churches are growing more rapidly than in previous generations. Linda discusses the metrics, trends, questions, and some predictions for the future of multisite churches. Linda also lists several examples of resources for those viewers looking for more information on the subject.
