Parent’s Corner: Encouraging Intergenerational Relationships

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

In recent articles, I have stressed the importance of intergenerational relationships within your church setting.  It appears that it is the key reason that youth remain in the church following high school graduation, into their college years and beyond.  Isn’t that what we want for our children—a strong faith that they carry throughout their lives?  It is your responsibility to advocate for the best chance your child has to grow up with lifelong faith.

Two experts in the field of intergenerational ministry, John Roberto and Kara Powell, are featured in the following article.  It is about 14 pages long, but really sums up the topic well. 

I hope you will read it and encourage your church to take on the challenge of becoming more INTERGENERATIONAL.  Start by sharing this article with the leaders in your church and discover together the power that intergenerational ministry has to enliven your church.  

And, to help find further resources go to the intergenerational ministry page on the GenOn website.

Also you will find there information on an ecumenical conference, InterGenerate, to be held next spring at Lipscomb University in Nashville, May 20-22, 2019.  Encourage a few folks from your church to attend.  They will bring back to your church a wealth of information.
