What is it?
It’s a 1-2 month guided process for a team of church leaders and a GenOn Guide to experience three workshops: Intergenerational Pathways, Guided Snapshot, and Ministry Area Development.
Does Intergenerational Ministry mean starting a new program?
It could, but not necessarily. Many congregations choose to adapt an existing ministry area – Worship, Study, Service, or Fellowship – to become more intentionally intergenerational.
Does it mean all the generations in the same room?
That’s typically multigenerational. To be intergenerational you plan which generations gather where all are mutually invested in the same activity or experience.
How can we do it without any children or youth attending now?
GenOn defines Intergenerational Ministry as two or more generations gathered in planned and purposeful settings, so younger and older adults coming together, where Christ-centered relationships are nurtured, is intergenerational ministry!
