Experience LIFT and Introduce Your Church to Intergenerational Ministry
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’ 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.
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 vitality. Includes time for planning practical ways to become a more intentionally intergenerational faith community. Currently being offered online for $35/person. Check online dates.
To host a workshop at your church or organization: For either event: $570 workshop fee, travel fee (not to exceed $275), plus local lodging, meals, and transportation for training leader(s). Begin by filling out an online Letter of Intent.
To attend another church's workshop: the cost is $70. Free for host church members. See schedule of upcoming events.
Read Presbyterian Mission Agency's story about the LIFT Experience at the Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network Conference:
LOGOS builds intergenerational relationships between young people and caring, Christian adults of all ages through a four-part weekly format of Bible Study, Recreation/Mission, Worship Arts, and Family Time (meal). LOGOS involves many adults serving throughout the evening, week after week, year after year. This time and intentionality grows intergenerational community. GenOn offers different levels of training for LOGOS churches, whether you are starting or are sustaining your ministry.Funding assistance may be available through the DeHaven Fund
