Generation Z needs the Gospel!
Dear Friends of Higher Things,
Did you know that Generation Z is the least religious generation? Approximately one third of youth born between 1997 and 2015 have NO religion whatsoever. No Jesus! We are talking about the largest generation in American history — approximately 27% of the population in this country — who don’t know the Gospel!
At Higher Things, we regularly serve 2,500-3,000 youth at our conferences each summer. Since our beginning nearly 20 years ago, Higher Things’ mission has been to support the church in passing on the faith by teaching the next generation the Gospel of Jesus Christ: that they are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, as revealed in Scripture alone. Dear friends, there are 86 million kids in Generation Z who have not yet been reached. That’s 86 million opportunities for us to share Jesus!
Not every one of those 86 million youth can come to one of our conferences each summer. We still need to reach them–on the internet, on their devices and through their peers and adults who interact with and influence them. Nearly 100% of those youth own a smartphone and spend over four hours per day on it! In order to reach them, Higher Things has committed this year to becoming an organization that delivers the Gospel, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the benefit of youth, young adults, parents, pastors, and church workers.
In order to accomplish this goal, you can expect to see the following from Higher Things in 2020:
-An updated, user-friendly website
-A Higher Things App (complete with new content notifications)
-Regular, youth-oriented videos, articles, devotions, and forums
-Youth Worker resources blog (Higher Things – Helpful Things)
-Downloadable, easy-to-use Bible studies to help you teach the faith to your youth in HT’s great catechetical style
So many of you have contributed to Higher Things in the past and we are deeply thankful. Will you help us continue to pass on the faith that we cherish to our youth? Our goal is to raise 50 thousand dollars by April 30th in order to accomplish this daunting task. We are just in time as you consider your Lenten and Easter giving!
Thank you for your continued support of Higher Things!
