Millennials are the least mobile of the last four generations. They don’t move nearly as much as their parents and grandparents. You might find this stat surprising. What’s going on? Thom and Sam discuss on this week’s episode.

The younger generations are not moving as much as in the past.

1. Mobility is down significantly (In the 1940s, one in five moved annually)

2. Today it is less than one in ten

3. Why? Great Recession, homeownership is more difficult, work-from-home

How can the church reach and keep them?

1. Fewer events, more programming

2. Churches that are as diverse as the preschools

3. Many more single-parent homes than in the past

If you like historical biographies, you’ll love what is certainly the most important biography in history: the biography of Jesus. This is now available in a captivating new book from Tyndale called God with Us. It’s the account of Jesus’ life, teachings, and deeds, told entirely in the words of the four Gospels, woven together into one chronological narrative. It’s like nothing you’ve ever read, even if you know the Bible well. 

In a unique and powerful telling of the gospel—the biography and teachings of Jesus and the story of redemption—the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are woven together into a single narrative. God with Us crystallizes the story of Jesus, amplifies his life-changing message, and clarifies the gift of salvation. It is a reading experience unlike any other.

A wonderful accent to your personal Bible study or a great gift or product for your ministry, this presentation of Jesus’ story will bring clarity to your understanding and effectiveness to your outreach. In God with Us, meet Jesus as you never have and share his story in a new and moving way.
