In this unique episode, you’ll get to hear from David Kinnaman, CEO of the Barna group, directly. During the short interview, we cover topics ranging from the latest research on Gen Z (essentially, our K-12 aged students) to the state of the church today and ways our schools can better partner with them, to wisdom he shares for parents raising children in our ever-swirling and changing world.
