Mission & Vision

what is z8

Why Unite

Research believes that Generation Z has an 8 second attention span. At LifeLight we believe they have an 8 second filter. A filter that searches for the melody of truth and love. That’s 8 seconds to introduce them to the love of Jesus Christ. 

Gen Z is on track to become the largest living generation in American history. The mission of Z8 is to awaken a world changing initiative to unify Gen Z and  make Jesus known. Ages 12-26 make up Gen Z and are divided into 2 demographics: youth and young adults. Many would consider Gen Z a post Christian generation so, the Z8 Initiative is on a mission to awaken young world changers to win, send, empower and multiply young people for Christ.
