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.”

"Houston, We Have a Problem!"

For weeks we have been asking about the “new normal.” This week in America we received the answer: “Enough is enough.” There is no more patience with the attitudes, practices, and systems that have blurred, buried, and discounted historic racism in America. The impulse is to blame “out of state, far left Antifa;” the impulse is to minimize the pattern and pervasiveness of police violence toward people of color; the impulse is to raise national concern only when buildings are burning rather than when Black lives are lynched. But even more, the fact that four cops can act in broad daylight with cameras rolling and citizens screaming in protest to their actions in such a murderous manner is a

The COVID-19 Rethink Not Being Asked by Christian Colleges

Robert Sloan wrote an article for The Gospel Coalition entitled, “How COVID-19 Is Changing Christian Colleges” (May 28,2020).

LEADERSHIP IN TIMES OF CHANGE: What We Learn from the Men of Issachar

The spotlight is now shifting off of the virus an on to organizational leaders. They are being pressed to make significant decisions with minimal or conflicting information. Some of these decisions have life and death consequences: consequences that are not normally the purview of the typical nonprofit leader. So it is understandable that they will be scrambling for confirmation and guidance in their decision making. In this context, Christians will be looking for modern day “men of Issachar,” mighty men who know how to best read the “signs of the times and know what Israel should do.” This is a biblical reference to I Chronicles 12:32. David was banished from the presence of Saul and has
