Serve millennials in your community by offering personal finance courses
June 1, 2018 by David Loleng
I recently spoke with a national staff person with another mainline denomination about their efforts with outreach. He told me about a couple churches in Portland, Oregon that were seeing great success offering personal finance courses for church members and people in their local community. Interestingly, one group were very interested and engaged in the finance courses they were offering, that group being millennials.
I stumbled upon the article below as I tried to find out why millennials were so drawn to personal finance training. There are many reasons that churches and leaders are interested in learning more about how to reach out to and serve millennials and hopefully this article will help to inform us as to millennials’ views on finance and challenge us to think of creative ways the church can serve, witness and encourage this group.
