Millennials Seek to Serve God in Their Work

When Millennials first entered the workforce, older generations deemed them lazy, greedy, entitled, me-me-me generation,

While some may feed this stereotype, Millennials are shaping today's workplace in many positive ways. Plus, 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. Every February, several thousand college students of this ilk 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).
