Intergenerational Ministry is an impactful dynamic in our churches. It may also be a best kept secret in many faith communities. Church congregations, like much of our culture, tend to organize around age specific groups. While this is important, we know from research and experience, when generations gather it can have a profound influence on a community and shape an intergenerational culture of faith. This course will establish the “what and why” of intergenerational faith formation and strategies of how generations learn, pray, worship, serve, and care together effectively.
Cultivating an intergenerational identity in your community might mean recognizing how generations already gather intergenerationally, or infusing an intergenerational dimension to existing events, or creating new ones. This course invites you to consider how to make experiences in our churches more inclusive of different generations.
