Pastor Prescribes Faith to Millennials Struggling to Reconcile Their Feelings after the Presidential Election
Pastor Ellis D. Powell Aims to Build Bridges between the Church and Millennials, and Cultivate a Ministry That Is Plugged into Today's Mobile-Driven Culture
SPRING, Texas, Nov. 21, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- A Spring, Texas pastor is reaching out to the many millennials across the country who have taken to the streets and to social media to protest the outcome of the presidential election. According to Pastor Ellis D. Powell, founder of The Daily Bread, millennials who are dismayed still have a choice, and that choice is faith.
"Millennials have become increasingly disconnected from the church, and the lack of a spiritual foundation and a church home can prove challenging when wrestling with feelings of anger, disappointment, fear and helplessness," said Pastor Powell. "The bible says that 'all things work for the good of those who love the Lord.' When we choose faith and choose to live our lives according to biblical principles, we are better equipped to handle unfavorable outcomes, and remain strong and unwavering in knowing that no matter what, we will be victorious through Christ."
Pastor Powell believes that this message can not only begin to heal the hearts of millennials who have been visibly distraught following the outcome of the presidential election, but also help them to channel their energy and emotions in a more positive and purposeful manner.
The Daily Bread Church aims to spread love and understanding through the use of Bible-based teachings that complement today's mobile culture. The church welcomes anyone seeking the word of God, no matter the stage of their life's journey, their age, their skin color or their personal history.
Pastor Powell especially has a heart for millennials, who according to Pew Research are much less likely than older populations to pray, attend church regularly or consider religion as an important part of their lives. And while statisticians offer bleak projections on the return of millennials to the church, Pastor Powell believes that this trend can be reversed.
"I truly believe that by focusing on millennials as individuals, meeting them where they are and more quickly adapting to changes in technology, the church can regain the trust of millennials and earn a place in their hearts," said Pastor Powell. "We would be failing this generation miserably if we didn't make a greater effort to bring them into the fold, and our church is committed to doing whatever is necessary to help millennial men and women gain salvation."
