When younger leaders begin to lead in the church, the common temptation is to overlook them. For whatever reason, millennials rarely get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to empowerment. The reality is, millennials thrive when they are given real opportunities, instead of meaningless ones. As church leaders, it is important to not just delegate to millennials, but to empower them. If you have ever wondered how you can empower millennials by providing them the types of opportunities that they will respond to, you’re in the right place.
When you think about all of the tasks and responsibilities that need to be done to effectively run a church, stress often follows. This is why empowerment is so vital to the health of the church.
