Reaching Gen Y



How do we reach Gen Y? Has the ramped up culture of novelty seeking, consumerism and sexualisation taken its toll? Do we need new strategies or are their tried and true methods for helping to ignite the faith of our young people? Steve Toohey speaks from his experience working with this generation.


Steve Toohey is the Director of the Youth Mission Team Australia (YMT) and has 25 yrs of youth ministry experience. YMT runs high school retreats and weekends for youth based on peer-to-peer evangelisation. Operating for 27 years, there are 4 teams in operation around Australia made up of young men and women (age 18 – 30) who volunteer to join a team for one year.
