Josiah–A Four-Part Series
Many Americans, and especially Christians, are convinced that things have never been this bad before–from the divisive election rhetoric to the Millennial’s transition as Millennials into leadership in our companies, government, and churches. These young adults are often labeled as irresponsible, lazy, unreliable, and uninterested in anything spiritual. But are these beliefs accurate? What does God’s Word say? And how do our present challenges compare to the realities of history?
Josiah came to power when things were much worse than today. At age eight, Josiah had a heart for God as a young boy. As a teenager, he pursued God with his whole heart. At 20, he launched national reform. Like many of today’s Millennials who are his same age, Josiah was cause oriented and passionate about correcting the problems inherited from past generations. But Josiah, like today’s Millennials, was also missing one big truth. When he discovered it, an entire nation turned back to God.
Many are asking, “What does it take to save a generation?” Join us as we study this amazing young leader and discover the answer together. Together we’ll find hope in the midst of today’s challenges, and learn how today’s young leaders can change the world and what they need from the rest of us.
