Babushkas and iPhones – A Generational Gap

A gray-haired woman wearing a head scarf attends worship at one of the city’s historic cathedrals. Meanwhile, her 20-year-old grandson plays on his iPhone and sips gourmet coffee with friends. Ironically, both are oblivious to any relevance God might have in their lives. While a dying generation adheres to religious tradition, a younger, post-communist generation grows up with no personal knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Culturally Relevant for Young and Old

MTW helps reach across generational lines and plant culturally relevant churches grounded in God’s Word. Relationships develop through English classes, hiking clubs, mommy clubs, sewing, cooking, and more. One by one Slovaks are awakening to spiritual truth. A young Slovak man met an MTW missionary while playing soccer. He’s now a passionate believer and youth leader who hopes to become a pastor. Older church leaders are diving into a deeper knowledge of Christ and finding a hunger to impact others. The generational divide of head scarves and iPhones is bridged as young and old find unity together in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
