  • Five Practical Ways to Connect Generations In Your Church
    Wanting community in church and actually having community in church are two different things, but there are some churches who have taken steps to intentionally created intergenerational experience that have led to intentional community. Here are five practical, real-life examples of intentional community-building that can be implemented in churches of any size or generational population.
  • Culture Not Curriculum: The Heart of Connecting Generations
    What is intergenerational ministry? Sometimes it is easier to describe what something is by exploring what it is not. Many people associate this term with children’s ministry or family ministry within the church. While those ministries may be partners in intergenerational ministry, the scope of these ministries are not broad enough. When we understand the needs of the individuals in our churches, we can begin to incorporate practices that allow for both needs to be met and gifts to be shared. The ultimate goal? Finding ways for our faith community to connect to one another in meaningful relationships for the purpose of all of us following Jesus better (discipleship).
