CML: Understanding GenZ

This is a Peer2Peer virtual event for Church Mission Leaders


Michael Van Huis and Carlos Negrón of Missio Nexus will be joined by their special guest Tanner Callison of The Travelling Team.  Tanner will be interacting with us on the topic of Generation Z.  Tanner recently wrote a book titled: Gen Z Misunderstood: Changing the Narrative on Today’s Misfits and Dreamers.

As we speak with Church Mission Leaders across the continent, denominations, cultures, etc., one thing continues to come up; What do we do about our young people? How do we engage and inspire this new generation (Gen Z) to love the Lord and be passionate about global missions? Tanner has written a book for those who seek answers to these and other questions about Gen Z. Gen Z Misunderstood seeks to bridge the gap between you and Gen Z! Through years of experience with Gen Z, Tanner Callison seeks to challenge you to think differently and reprioritize your ministry efforts among this promising generation. We need to understand the story of Gen Z so we may invite them to a better story—God’s story.


Tanner Callison gained a heart for God’s global mission in college and has been mobilizing with The Traveling Team since 2014. Over the years Tanner has spoken to over 35,000 students on over three hundred private and public universities in the U.S. His work with Gen Z has led him to further study, writing, and engagement with Gen Z, including publishing Gen Z Misunderstood: Changing the Narrative on Today’s Misfits and Dreamers. Tanner is a graduate of the University of Arkansas, and Western Seminary with a Masters in Global Leadership along with a Masters in Biblical and Theological Studies. Tanner and his wife, Amber, both serve in leadership for The Traveling Team. They have one son, live in Portland, Oregon, and are members of Hinson Baptist Church.
