World Missionary Press Sees Spiritual Energy Among Christian Youth Europe

Barna Research Group just released a summary of faith findings among U.S. Millennials and Gen Z. The results aren’t great.  Spiritual maturity is not a priority for most young people surveyed, and over 20-percent of Millennials think it’s wrong to share your faith.

Helen Williams of World Missionary Press saw a completely different scene in Europe.

“[In Finland] there were vibrant young people from Helsinki, as well as from Africa, totally involved in the worship service [and] eager to serve,” she recounts. “In Sweden, there were several young men and a couple of young ladies that were involved in the street ministry.”

Passing the baton

Earlier this summer, Williams met many young Gospel workers while visiting WMP partners in Finland, Norway, Romania, and Sweden.  Some partners she knew only through email.

“I met people that I have been contact with by email for 20 years here at World Missionary Press,” Williams says. “[People who] have been serving the Lord and receiving our booklets, sending them out, giving them out and sharing them.”

“I think that’s purely of the Spirit and genuine. It comes from the Lord touching the heart that’s willing to yield.”
