Here is a great post from Ypulse about marketing to teenagers. A lot of trends in youth culture are different than when I was growing up but teens are still very much teens.
Something that I thought was interesting was the draw to the internet because it’s an interactive media instead of television where they can really only watch what’s on. Students want to interact and create. Some students will spend hours online because they can shape that world.
Here’s the question that will probably keep me up for a while:
How can we allow students to participate, shape, create in church? How do we make church a more active and interactive gathering instead of just a band and a sermon-ar?
