Congregations seeking to transform realize the beauty of four God-inspired gospel books in our Bible. Each gospel has the capacity to speak into the life situation of various birth generations. Matthew speaks best into the Builder generation. John the Boomer generation. Luke the Buster generation. Mark the Millennial generation.
Knowing this ought to inform the approach of congregations to the target generations they are seeking to connect with in ministry. It may also indicate why some communication from congregations is missing the mark. A congregation shouting their message with a Matthew perspective, for example, is going to miss the Millennials.
