Millennials: Humanizing Our Facilities and Technology for a Generation that Won’t Be Categorized

by Karl Vaters

 

Millennials don’t exist

 

There is no unified generational identity any more

  • Previous generations assumed relationships and needed to build structures
  • Current generations assume structures and need to build relationships

 

Relationships don’t scale

 

Build facilities and utilize technology based on relationships, not demographics

 

Be willing to haul rocks in your Volkswagen

  • Use the building to serve people, not vice versa

 

Use their names, don’t give them numbers

 

Become digital storytellers

 

Do ministry with them, not for or to them

 

Go digital and analog

 

Go deeper, not just bigger
