Global Youth Culture

Working with children and youth for over 30 years now, I can confidently say that today’s teens are a generation like no other the world has ever seen. Our recent Global Youth Culture research proves just that. Today’s teens are distinct in that they are unwilling to say that truth can be found in only one religion. Over half (52%) of teens globally believe all religions teach equally valid truths. Among Christian teens, the rate of agreement is 53%. Uncovering truths like this can help us pivot and tweak our discipleship methods for this unprecedented generation.

More than 8,300 teens from 20 countries completed an online survey for our Global Youth Culture project. We believe this study is the most comprehensive of its kind in the world in terms of taking a deep look at the faith of teenagers globally. I’ve always said that research is revelatory – and this research is no different. Some findings shocked me, some encouraged me, and some simply broke my heart. 

The change in culture hasn’t changed our biblical mandate to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6 KJV). It’s our duty as spiritual mothers and fathers to actively translate the world according to the truth of God’s Word to the young people among us. I pray that you will dive into this research with me to learn how we can minister to and mentor the next generation more effectively. In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing my take on these research findings here on my blog.

  3. Thanks so much for this important piece Sir.
    Interestingly, every religion has a leader or founder or figure head.
    I believe among other means of translating the truth of God’s Word to young people is to challenge them to consider the personality, integrity and the legacy left by each of these religious leaders.
    I believe that helps them to make the right decision to follow the Lord Jesus Christ and his Word as the absolute truth. God bless you richly Sir.
