It strikes me sometimes, that the generation that we now call, Gen Z will be making decisions for people in my generation in the future. Having a granddaughter who is in the next generation makes me extremely motivated to understand all the generations that follow me. The church has a tremendous privilege and responsibility to follow this generation Z and understand their grasp of the gospel, of us and of the world we live in. It was a privilege for me to talk to Dan Boal who has given his life to youth ministry. Dan is the director of youth for the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
Dan seeks to remain personally connected to Jesus and to purposefully mobilize people to fulfill Acts 1:8. He thrives when helping leaders reach the next generation with the gospel. He believes that good youth workers are GREAT missiologist. They know the culture and understand how Jesus can transform it through them to His desire.
