Seventy-five percent of the teenagers and young adults who have dropped out of church say they have never heard Jesus speak to them in a personal way.
Are your children doomed to die without Christ? Is Christianity no longer relevant to this generation? Is it not cool enough? Has it finally become too opposed to the cultural norms? Or is it simply just unbelievable?
No, we misjudged what this generation wants out of Church...and out of God. Not entertainment, therapy, relevance, or even (God forgive me) eternal security.
All they want - and all they need...is to hear him speak.
They want a relationship. And like going on a blind date, the hard part isn't asking this generation to connect with a God they have not seen, but rather asking them to love a God they have not met.
Because you can't say "Hallelujah", until you say "Hello".
In this engaging and refreshingly simple audiobook, JJ Vasquez explains how church leaders, parents, and pastors can move past just "telling" the next generation about Christ, and start "introducing" them to Him.
As a denominational youth leader, University Professor of Youth and Family Ministry, youth pastor of a 400+ student ministry, and a parent of two, JJ pulls from a rich variety of experience.
Hello God will help you:
Develop an authentic connection between the next generation and Jesus. No FORCED religion - REAL relationships.
Shape environments where genuine life-changing encounters can take place. (Think Moses and the burning bush, Paul on the road to Damascus, and Elijah on Mt. Sinai)
Share the Gospel in an easy-to-understand way that not only informs but also INVOLVES the hearer.
Reignite your own desire for being close to God
We can't afford to wait any longer. He's lived in stories long enough. It's time they met Him.
