Millennials and Mission: A Generation Faces a Global Challenge
by Jim & Judy Raymo

This book focuses on the passing of the torch in cross-cultural missions and church ministry to the Millennial generation. Jim and Judy Raymo grapple with big questions and concerns in Millennials and Mission, while giving an in-depth look at this up-and-coming generation of young people and the future of missions in its hands. They highlight the strengths and weaknesses of this populous group born between 1982 and 2000, comparing and contrasting its characteristics with those of the Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. In spite of the challenges ahead, Millennials and Mission gives a clearly optimistic picture of the Millennial generation’s potential contribution to the accomplishing of the Great Commission.
