Missions Monday- The 4% prediction

A Prediction by Tom Rainer:
"The incredible influence of the Bridger generation. Those born between 1977 and 1994 will do more than just start new churches. There are fewer Christians in this age range than previous generations, but their impact will be more profoundly felt than the larger numbers of Christians in the older age groups.
According to our research, as few as 4 percent of the 72 million Bridger generation may have a born-again experience. Yet that 4 percent will practice a radical Christianity. They will take their faith more seriously than previous generations. And many will go into dangerous mission fields, willing to give their lives for the sake of the gospel. The Bridger generation will not be satisfied with business as usual in the churches. And those churches that desire to reach the second-largest generation in America ’s history better be prepared to give more than lip service to the cause of Christ. These young people are shaking life up in many churches. "Top Ten Predictions for the Church" - Tom Rainer -
