Intergenerational Ministry All About Intergenerational Ministry
Be an INTERGENERATIONAL CHURCH!
Intergenerational ministry develops disciples and energizes churches by
- bringing together any combination of at least two generations in planned and purposeful settings
- empowering multiple generations to mutually invest in each other and in their faith community
- intentionally encouraging Christian relationships among multiple generations
GenOn Ministries places heavy emphasis on intergenerational experiences because we have seen the impact of cross-generational sharing of faith journeys and life-experienced wisdom when the art of Christian relationships is learned, experienced and practiced together. The deep relationships formed through these experiences play an invaluable role in the development of lifelong disciples, and in the renewal of energy and vitality in whole congregation.
