Intergenerational Ministry Get Started with Intergenerational Ministry
Intergenerational ministry nurtures Christ-centered community by bringing together two or more generations in planned and purposeful settings, where all are mutually-invested.
How does your church get started?
GenOn partners with you to assess and explore ways to bring generations together with an emphasis on intergenerational experiences leading to Christ-centered community. 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 the whole congregation.

Our Intergenerational Pathways explores the concept of intergenerational ministry to discover why gathering multiple generations together to learn, worship, serve and build relationships is important for faith development and church growth. Includes time for planning practical ways to become a more intentionally intergenerational faith community.
LIFT Experience explores new ways to be more intentionally intergenerational as a church community both in theory and in practice. This workshop includes an opportunity to experience GenOn Ministries’ Sunday LIFT (Living In Faith Together), a flexible model, connected by a common theme, with four components (eating, studying God’s Word, playing, and praying) for all generations to come together around the table.LOGOS Boost or Encounter (for churches interested in learning more about LOGOS) Worship Arts Made Doable (involving all generations in worship leadership)

All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers
Create intergenerational events for your church with All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers. This curriculum works for small to large churches, with all generations present and with only some generations present. Four units are available: Lent, Advent/Christmas, Summer and The Church Family Gathers for a Very Blessed Summer (VBS).
Generations learn and grow in faith together weekly in a program modeled after the early church in Acts 2:42 with time for Bible Study, Recreation/Mission, Worship Arts, and Family Time meal. LOGOS helps develop deep roots within the congregation when parents, grandparents, and other significant adults dedicate time to the ministry. Clergy and other volunteers of all ages from the church also serve, making this an intergenerational, congregational ministry.
