Intergenerational Ministry Training
“Liz's workshop was engaging and interactive. As we explore how to become a more intergenerational congregation, GenOn has given us some concrete and common language to use. Our small group conversations resulted in church members dreaming about a number of different ministries. We are excited about what that means for intentional intergenerationality making its way into many areas of church life here.”
Rev. Julie Hester, Associate Pastor for Faith Formation, First Presbyterian Church, Asheville, NC
