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
