If you’re reading this, there is a 1 in 3 chance you’re a Millennial – someone (according to research) who is between the ages of 18 and 29. Here is your weekly infographic. We did an inforgraphic awhile ago on the millennials. Here is another infographic on the millennials.
Here are a few things that stand out for a youth worker:
1. 75% are on a social networking site. This is why it is so important for youth workers to have a social media policy. I know a lot of conversation has been about not facebook friending students. If you believe those stats you will use facebook as a strategy to reach teens.
2. 1/5 of millennials have posted video online. They are all about being online. This could be a dangerous thing. Everything we do shouldn’t be posted online. With that said, I think that this has huge possibilities for the church in trying to reach teens through video.
3. 25% of millennials are without religion. I am not surprised by this stat. America is heading to a post evangelical nation(note: I am canadian, and my city has a 5% evangelical popluation). Ministry is more in need than ever.
Those are a few things that stood out to me while I read that infographic. What stands out to you? Leave a comment below.
