Gen Z and the Church
Exclusive Barna Group Data Release

The Culture, Beliefs, and Motivations Shaping the Next Generation

Tuesday, January 26, 2021  |  1:00pm – 2:30pm
$15.00 Webinar Access

Transform Minnesota is hosting a 4-part monthly webinar series spanning from January to April. January’s webinar features Savannah Kimberlin, Director of Published Research at Barna Group.  

In 2017, Barna Group produced Gen Z: The Culture, Beliefs and Motivations Shaping the Next Generation. At the time, this was their most comprehensive research on the perceptions, experiences, and motivations of 13- to 18-year-olds. 2020 has significantly impacted Gen Z, particularly in how their worldview relates to Christianity and culture. Over the past year, Barna Group has developed their Gen Z Vol. 2 research which is set to release on January 27th. 

Barna Group’s findings include studies conducted during COVID-19. In this exclusive access webinar, Savannah will provide insight into the complexity and unique opportunity in discipling this influential generation. Christian Gen Z individuals continue to ask questions about today’s most critical issues, and they are still hopeful that the Church will provide tangible answers. Join us as we study Barna Group’s research for application in youth ministries, fellowship, and discipleship here in our communities and congregations.  We look forward to having you join us as we invest in Gen Z.

Please note that this webinar will not be recorded. To have access to the content and the community of the group, you will need to be present on Tuesday, January 26 at 1pm CST.
