Millennial expert and founder of the Initiative Network, Grant Skeldon, joined Tracy Levinson on the debut episode of "DOCK 2" to discuss generations, racial reconciliation, political parties, parenting, responsibility, sex and faith.
Grant serves on the advisory boards for Harvest America in Dallas and Movement Day Greater Dallas. He is currently a student at Dallas Baptist University. He also serves on the preaching team at Mercy Street Church, a multicultural, urban church in West Dallas.
Initiative has impacted thousands of young leaders from over 540 different churches across the metroplex. Grant has traveled across the globe speaking to over 33,000 pastors, parents, and business leaders on the topic of engaging and empowering millennials.
Grant's generation are frequently labeled noncommittal, cynical, and entitled slacktivists. He started Initiative Network in order to shift the culture of Dallas by training millennials to be Christ-loving, city-changing, church-investing, disciple-making local missionaries.
Grant is inspired by the Bible, particularly 1 Timothy 4:12 "Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity."
He and Tracy had a raw and honest heart to heart about modeling a relationship with Jesus, "godly sorrow" versus guilt at our own sin, and making Christlike choices. They also examined the differences between young people around the world and between the generations.
Grant shared some remarkable insights during the conversation. To millennials, he said social media asks them to show their best and hide the rest; they should not be intimidated when others seem to do better than them. His advice to parents of millennials is to be "confident in who you are and comfortable with who you're not."
