What a Millennial Parent Wants in a Church

3 Essentials + 4 Really Nice-to-Have’s

Let me start by saying the title of this article bugs me, and I wrote it.

I’m a Christian Millennial parent. I’m not one of those Millennials who left the church only to return after having a child. I’ve been here and engaged the whole time.

18 Churchy Things the Class of 2018 Won’t Get

Around this time of year, the mainstream media and Internet meme-machines like to remind us how old we are by telling us all of the things this year’s high school graduates won’t remember because, well, they weren’t even born yet.
