The leader of an American pastors network is warning about a generational gap among pastors that needs to be bridged.
The president of the American Pastors Network, Sam Rohrer, says there's a divide that's much larger than most people think.
"What that divide is between is not just between older and younger," he observes. "It's between older, faithful pastors – those who do believe in the authority of scripture, have remained faithful in their ministry - and then the Millennial, the younger pastors – some of whom are not faithful to the Word but then others who are."
Those pastors are not talking to each other, says Rohrer, which is why APN has launched an initiative to bring together experienced pastors with Millennials who are new to the pulpit.
"We're wanting to unite and bring together those who are faithful – younger – with those who have been faithful – older – and overcome these differences," he tells OneNewNow. "But they are in fact magnified, we think, by technology as well as by a culture that generally has moved away from a biblical world view."
The new initiative will include webinars and conferences that will be launched in the summer or fall.
