Word and Work: Reaching Millennials

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis President Dr. Dale A. Meyer sits down with Rev. Mark Kiessling, director of Youth Ministry for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) to discuss ways the church can better reach millennials and young people, and explore the findings of an LCMS survey of young adults. In the second half of the show, they are joined by several St. Louis-area teens who share their perspectives on the struggles by the church to engage young people in the life of the church.
