Important Stats for Student Ministry

You don’t have to have a degree in Youth Ministry to realize that our students are more connected than any generation before them. With that being said I, like most of you I’m sure, am always looking for better ways to communicate with my students.

Tim Elmore and Growing Leaders recently conducted a focus group of 16-24 year olds and asked them how they wanted to receive information from us. Here are the top 8 answers:

1. Text messaging
2. Internet (i.e. MySpace or Facebook)
3. iPods and Podcasts
4. Instant messaging
5. Cell phone
6. DVD / CD
7. Books
8. Email
