Anticipating Gen Z and ‘bridgers’ | Voice

Data from the American Worldview Inventory, conducted annually by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, shows that this “bridge” segment is shockingly distant from biblical orthodoxy in its beliefs and practices. Almost six out of 10 of them describe their faith as Christian (58% — alarmingly low in itself), yet less than 2% of bridgers have a biblical worldview. Bridgers who qualify as Don’ts (i.e., don’t know, don’t care, or don’t believe that God exists) outnumber born-again Christians by a two-to-one margin (31 to 16%).

We might consider what it will take to draw bridgers — and Gen Z — closer to a worldview that is consistent with Scripture.
