Intergenerational ministry encompasses the whole congregation, all generations, in communal and corporate contexts of friendship, mentorship, discipleship, and relationship. It is at its heart, a cultural characteristic of a congregation rather than a specific ministry area; it is a culture that values and creates space for meaningful connections to be made across generational boundaries in a variety of settings for the purpose of generational discipleship, faith formation, and community building. In this live online workshop, we will explore the implications of intergenerational relationships on our congregation, our community, and our homes as well as the impact COVID-19 has had on our approaches to generational discipleship.
This workshop is best for Christian congregations interested in intergenerational faith formation and discipleship.
