Welcome to ReFocus Ministry

We are passionate about connecting the generations at church and at home in meaningful relationships and active community.

It’s Not Enough to say “We Value Community”

It’s not enough to just say “We value community.” We must take active steps to allow for authentic community to thrive. It’s not enough to say “We value every voice.” We must tear down the structures and assumptions that keep voice marginalized and unheard. It’s not enough to say, “We value children/youth.” We must engage the rising generations in active meaningful relationships and contexts that connect faith to action.

“I Believe in Jesus, but Don’t Call Me Christian”

Many younger generations are saying, “I still believe in God and Jesus and the Bible, but I don’t want to be called a Christian.” They are opposed to many of the movements that have been labeled as “evangelical” or “Christian” in the past decades and desire to distance themselves from that label and institution. And we have a role to play in that. “We need communities that foster a sense of belonging to something bigger, create space for intergenerational connections that are meaningful and long-lasting, and invite a willingness to engage in conversations of doubt, faith, and culture”

Missing the Mark: The Failing Strategy of Trying to Woo Missing Generations

Increasingly, I have found myself in conversations with churches that are concerned they do not have a lot of Millennials and Gen-Xers in their congregations.
