Young Christians Can Smell a Fake a Mile Away

Perhaps one reason we've lost touch with the younger generation is that we didn't invite them to experience the raw power of God. (Fizkes via Getty Images)
I spent this past weekend with a group of younger guys from the Washington, D.C. area. Most of them were in their mid- to late 20s and early 30s—the age of my own kids. All but two of them were single. And even though I am twice their age they loved being with me. I've been texting several of them since our three-day retreat.

There is no generation gap between us. We genuinely enjoyed being together—whether we were worshipping the Lord, building a bonfire, sharing meals or staying up late and talking about their biggest struggles.

I shared from the Bible in several teaching sessions, but after the messages I asked each young man to get in the "hot seat" so we could pray for him. Some of the guys were filled with the Holy Spirit. Others broke free from bad habits. Others worked up the courage to begin considering marriage.

People today often complain that the younger generation is leaving the church. I can't deny statistics. But everywhere I go I find passionate young adults who want to grow spiritually. All the men I spent time with last weekend are leaders at Overflow City Church, a congregation that was planted last year in the D.C. suburb of Silver Spring, Maryland. More than 90% of the church's members are either university students or young professionals.

I've learned so much from being around young Christians like the ones I met at Overflow. read more
