Becoming Intentionally Intergenerational

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

Rev. Dr. Christian D. Boyd Pastor, Southminster PC (USA), Waukesha, Wisconsin Stated Clerk, Presbytery of Milwaukee PC (USA)         Southminster Presbyterian Church (USA) in Waukesha, Wisconsin, four years ago discerned its core values and practices as a part of its 50-year anniversary and the kickoff of strategic planning.

GenOn Has an Exciting Retreat Opportunity This Fall, and We Want YOU to Be Part of It!

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

GenOn is gathering leaders from far and wide to enjoy a time to build relationships, rest, explore current happenings within GenOn, and explore the wider view of intergenerational ministry.  This retreat will be a gathering of church leaders and volunteers, LOGOS Training Leaders, GenOn Youth Summit leaders, GenOn Board Members, and GenOn’s Advisory Council. We will be exploring the theme "For Such a Time as THIS." So often our focus is split into many different directions or drawn to tasks where we would rather not spend so much time. During our time together we will focus on THIS. Join us to allow time...
