The gap between generations has never been greater. Understanding the unique aspects and challenges of Gen Z is vital if we want to reach this generation with the truth of the Christian worldview.


How well are we doing?


Recent statistics show that half of Gen Z children raised in the church are leaving the faith after they leave the nest, and recent research from Barna shows that only 4% of Gen Z has a Biblical worldview.


How do you disciple them?


How do you relate?


What obstacles do they face and how can you teach them to pray?


To answer those questions, Catherine launched a new 4-part series on Gen Z.


Joining her for the second installment is Dr. Jonathan Morrow, the director of cultural engagement and student discipleship at Impact 360 Institute. Jonathan has been equipping students and parents in biblical worldview, apologetics, and culture for over 16 years and is passionate about seeing a new generation build a lasting faith. He holds a Master of Divinity, a Master of Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, and a Doctorate in Worldview and Culture from Talbot School of Theology. An adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University, Jonathan has authored several books on apologetics and resides near Atlanta with his wife of 20 years and three kids.


In this episode, Jonathan helps bridge the gap to Gen Z by sharing five things that every parent needs to know about this generation.
