Video 4 - Beliefs about Bible
Random interviews with Millennials
Minneapolis streets / Summer 2018
Millennials (ages 18-38) – the population segment shaping our churches – are interviewed at random on Twin Cities streets to see what they think about God, Bible, sin, heaven/hell, church and other spiritual matters – a continuous interview program.
Here we get into their minds and learn to communicate the Gospel and Christian life in ways that are understandable and relevant in the modern world.
When you're passing people on the street, do you often wonder what they think about the Bible...
Well, we decided to ask them ...
What do you think about the Bible?
We stopped these Millennials at random on the streets of Minneapolis ...
...and asked them what they believe ...
... so we know starting points in spiritual conversation with them ...

What's the point?
This is the thinking that's shaping our country and challenging our churches.
Listening to street interviews help us understand Millennials. These are the leaders of the future. We must converse intelligently with them and learn to explain the gospel in terms they can understand. We need to start from their perspective, not ours. Preaching at them rarely works.
If we talk to people outside the church the same way we talk to people inside the church, it's like two ships passing in the night, and the church will continue to decline in America.
Church Scouts is working with pastors, evangelists and communication specialists to find and test effective new ways of connecting with Millennials. You will find periodic reports and practical helps for Twin Cities church leaders on this site.More video interviewsDemographic implications
