Barna Study: Who Has Intergenerational Friendships?

Posted by Liz Perraud at

A new Barna study shows that a majority of Americans report engaging in intergenerational friendships. One’s faith community, according to the study, influences the likelihood of cross-generational connections. Though not the most likely place to meet older or younger friends (that would be the workplace or through a mutual friend), meeting at church/place of worship far exceeded the reported experience of meeting through a mentorship program.

Wendy Claire BarrieFamily FormationTrinity Church Wall StreetNew York, NY   In each edition of GenOn Connect, we will ask someone the same two questions about intergenerational ministry: “What keeps you up at night?” and “What gets you up in the morning?” What keeps you up at night? Having worked with kids my entire professional life, I am utterly convinced that adults benefit as much or more from being in relationship with kids as kids benefit from relationships with significant adults.
