These days The Navigators are providing NavPress with some very insightful trends they’re seeing in their work with college-age young adults. I thought you might be interested in what we’re learning. Perhaps you have noticed some of the same trends in your ministry world?

At NavPress we take these shifts very seriously; they provide us with a reminder that we must be conscious of changes in the way people today process information and form spiritual decisions.

Let me know your thoughts on this and what you’ve been observing.

Shifting Trends

Old: Learning through reading

New: Learning through images and stories

Old: Guilt orientation

New: Shame orientation

Old: Individual evangelism

New: Living/discipling among those who don’t believe

Old: Activity-oriented ministry

New: Environments of grace

Old: Organizational growth

New: Kingdom movement
