Abstract
This project examines a paradigm shift in societal values in the English-speaking Caribbean and implications for Church mission and ministry among youth and young adults. The methodology includes a questionnaire and focus group involving tertiary level Caribbean students, as well as interviews. The research detects a paradigm shift in core values, a technology-led change in morality and apparent breakdown in responsiveness and leadership in key social institutions, and determines that family, school, and church are still vital in transmitting wholesome values and restoring a society's moral equilibrium. It proposes intergenerational intervention strategies at every level.
