Three notable articles I read this week:

Russell MooreAre Millennials selfish and entitled? “Every generation in recorded human history sees the next as spoiled, lazy, and selfish. And every generation in church history tends to see the next as carnal, unorthodox, unevangelistic, and uncommitted. But it’s just not so.”

Brad Lomenick12 keys to attracting young leaders. “Let’s face it- young leaders are the future of your organization. Whether you like it or not, they will soon take over and be running the show. Your show. My show. If you aren’t attracting young talent, then the days are numbered for your influence and the legacy of your organization.”

TennesseanHow Jars of Clay guitarist ended up as a barber. After 20 years of playing in the band Jars of Clay, Stephen Mason has a second career as a master barber.

Three people worth following:

These three pastors recently transitioned to prominent established Baptist churches. You should keep up with them as they lead their congregations forward.

Robbie Gallaty. In 2015, Long Hollow Baptist Church called Robby Gallaty. In addition to his leadership at Long Hollow, Robby is also the founder of Replicate Ministries. You can connect with Robbie through his blog, on Twitter, or through Facebook.

Eric Geiger. Eric serves as one of the Vice Presidents at LifeWay Christian Resources, leading the Resources Division. He also serves as the senior pastor of ClearView Baptist Church in Franklin, Tennessee. He is an example of a new type of bivocational pastor. You can connect with Eric through his website, via Twitter, and on Facebook.

Matt Brooks. On Sunday February 21, 2016, the congregation of First Baptist Jackson unanimously approved Matt Brooks as their 22nd pastor since 1838. You can follow Matt through Twitter, as well as through FBC’s Twitter account.
