The Church Intentionally Evangelizing to De-churched, Millennial Families Through the Use of Their Preschool to Make the Family Lifelong Members.
There is a phenomenon occurring in Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod preschools. Millennial parents who have a church background, but are not currently actively involved in a church, are enrolling their young children into WELS preschools. Many have noticed this trend as well. Many principals and pastors are currently trying to use the preschool for evangelism. This paper interviewed eighteen leaders who are either a pastor, a principal, or a chairman of the Board of Education from eight different congregations from the Milwaukee suburban area. Drawing from their experiences, this paper will propose a generic plan for evangelizing to de-churched, millennial families from the school to make them lifelong members.
