Millennial Christians are enlisting in an army of ‘healers and helpers’
March 14, 2022
TUPELO, Miss. — In a recent survey of millennials, LifeWay Research found that Christian millennials are three times as charitable as their counterparts. LifeWay said it wanted to compare how Christian millennials and non-Christian millennials manage the spending of their money. The survey asked 905 adults between 25 and 40 years old about their financial habits. Results revealed that Christian millennials “were more likely to give to a local church (37%) than their non-Christian peers (8%). While 28% of Christian young adults donate to religious organizations, 11% of non-Christians do the same,” according to an article from The Christian Post.
American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) said the survey results are a great reason for hope, and that it’s time millennials are recognized for joining ranks of earlier generations who have supported Christian causes in faith by reaching out to those who are suffering.
Ed Vitagliano, AFA executive vice president, stated, “Millennials aren’t perfect, by any means, but it’s time that non-perfect baby boomers give their younger counterparts some well-deserved praise. These survey results reveal that Christian young people have hearts of compassion and want to help a hurting world. Their faith appears to be the main driver of their generosity and that’s an encouraging sign for the future of the church in America. With so many people in pain in this country, we need an army of Christians to be healers and helpers as they point the way to the Savior, and it looks like our millennials have enlisted in that army.”
