Millennials Seek to Serve God in Their Work

Millennials -- lazy, greedy, entitled, the me-me-me generation? Not all of them.

Sure, some feed this stereotype. But did you realize that born-again Millennials are notable for their social activism, and they practice evangelism more than any other generation?

At LeTourneau University, you'll find a generation of determined, hard-working young men and women who love God and want to serve Him in the workplace. And they're not alone. Every February, several thousand college students gather in Pittsburg at the Jubilee Conference to learn how they can serve God in various professions, like physics, education, business, performing arts, robotics, health and politics, law and justice, social sciences, and  many more.

Marcus Goodyear and the folks at The High Calling sponsored a contest at the conference. Entrants created a 90-second video about how God was shaping their view of work and how they hoped to serve him in their career as a result. The winner, Dylan Weston, plans to serve God in the ranching and dairy industries.

Watch Dylan’s story here as well as the other two entries.

Everything matters. “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:17).
