I just watched the following videos by Gamification expert, author and speaker, Gabe Zichermann.

If you, as a congregational leader,  want to understanding the coming generations, watch one of the following presentations.

At present we are, as Zichermann says, more disconnected from our youth than any other generation.  That’s right, the technological cultural differences between generations are greater than they have ever been. You still making phone calls?  Exactly.

While you watch Gabe’s talk, consider what “gamification” of your congregation and its ministry might look like.
