Millennials are shaping the future.

We're shaping the conversation

about millennials.

“I’m embarrassed to admit I have held an under-examined negative view of millennials.  John has opened my eyes to what is possible, and particularly in the hands, mind and souls of millennials themselves.”

You Are More Than "Broken"

I learned a lesson from my friend, James Lecesne, yesterday. When marginalized people—particularly our LGBTQIA brothers and sisters—hear Christians talking about brokenness, they feel judged. It's a trigger word. It is like telling them that they are not enough. In this word, their personhood is fundamentally devalued.

Spokespersons of the Gen Z cohort are unfortunately easy targets for know-it-all Boomers... the same generation who has largely created the world of crisis that Gen Zs are inheriting. It is time for Boomers to shut up and listen with appreciation to t
