Reaching and Equipping Gen Z

Online Premium Course (Certificate)

Despite the wonders of technology, we live in anxious and busy times. So, how do we reach a younger generation when our own lives are overflowing? The solution is not to add a new program, but to better use existing opportunities.

Sean McDowell provides strategies and practical tactics from his own personal experiences in order to help teachers, youth leaders and of course parents to train the next generation.

There is a tendency to be either overly romantic or critical about new generations. The reality is that members of Generation Z face the same life challenges as previous generations, but in a super-connected and rapid-moving technological age. And let us not forget that they have the same deep needs for love, significance, meaning, and belonging as every previous generation.  

Sean McDowell, PhD.
