Webinar: Spiritual But Not Religious: Reaching the Millennial Generation

This webinar is one of an open MB series exploring the spiritual life titled, Spiritual But Not Religious: Reaching the Millennial Generation. 

With about a quarter of the U.S. population and more than one-third of Millennials (those born 1981-1996) self-identifying as religious “nones” and “dones,” Pastors Forrest Jenan and John Richardson share some clues for reaching a new generation.

Forrest Jenan is the pastor of Neighborhood Church in Visalia, Calif., which calls itself a “Jesus church” and uses the neo-Anabaptist confession (Jesus is the center of our faith; church is the center of our life; reconciliation is the center of our work) as its theological statement. About 2,000 people attend each weekend.

John Richardson is the pastor of Prodigal Church in Fresno, Calif. This young church plant of Multiply and the Pacific District Conference has grown to over three hundred people who gather weekly in a high school theater for worship and teaching. Their outreach among Millennials has empowered their growth.

The webinar series is co-sponsored by the FPBS Center for Anabaptist Studies (CABS) and the U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (USMB.)
