Christian leaders, listen up. There’s a critical demographic trend playing out before us right now. It’s called the Millennial generation. 75.4 million millennials make up the largest living generation. Why should this matter to your church, organization, or business? Because Millennials are the future of your culture. Millennials are the “tomorrow” of your culture that you need to take notice of, today.
The question in front of us on today’s podcast is, how can you leverage and optimize the unique perspective and multiple talents of Millennials to grow the health of your culture and therefore deepen the immediate and lasting impact of your organization?
Our guest is going to answer this question.
Today we have the pleasure of visiting with Dr. Amy Nagley. Amy recently served as research consultant with the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. Amy has written a white paper on the topic of Millennials in the Christian Workplace, which we’ll make available on the show notes page on our blog.

Today, we’re breaking from our weekly interview schedule to bring you a special treat. We’re sharing an exclusive interview with Willow Creek Community Church founder and pastor Bill Hybels from the 2014 Human Resources Ministry Network Conference.
We think you’ll enjoy Bill's humor and candor, as he shares his timeless wisdom about building an HR and people journey in your culture. Bill believes deeply in the importance of human resources in accomplishing great work for a great God. Listen in for his advice to HR staff on how to work closely with their senior leaders.
In the interview, you’ll hear Bill being interviewed by Willow Creek’s human resources director, Colby Burke. Colby has spearheaded the BCWI Employee Engagement Survey at Willow Creek for the past 8 years. Over that time, the church has seen their culture transform from nearly toxic to highly flourishing.
The measurement tool used by Bill and his team at Willow Creek Community Church is the BCWI Employee Engagement Survey – our faith-based, anonymous, online instrument that compiles and calibrates your employees’ feedback. Join more than 200 churches—including 7 of the 10 largest in the U.S.—that have discovered their path to a flourishing culture with this tool.
