Connecting Generations

At Church and At Home

Welcome to ReFocus Ministry

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

Our mission is to help faith communities engage in generational discipleship across the ages and create spaces that foster intergenerational experiences, communal worship, and nurturing communities for all generations.

Our “Church Box” is Way Too Small

When we squish church into a box that can be experienced only by adults in less than an hour…we miss the point, we miss the whole idea of church. And that is why it is so easy for people to leave the church, because what they are leaving isn’t really the church, it’s the box we’ve created for church to fit into.

One Size Doesn’t Fit All: Five Ideas for Worshiping Together

A recent study has found that over half of parents weren’t “ready” to get back to pre-Covid lifestyles and 39% of kids agreed. Some families have found this time together to be not only a healthy experience for their family, but one that they don’t want to lose. Even before Covid hit, 87% of families indicated they were often looking for ways to spend time together.
What better place for that to happen than within the faith community? What if instead of returning to “life as normal” post-Covid, this could be a time to begin to intentionally find spaces for families to worship, grow, and learn about God together in church?

Why Stay Where You Are Not Wanted?

When we talk about generations walking away from the church, I sometimes think we get a mental image of someone we don’t know or we are ideologically at odds with. But the truth is, these are not nameless, faceless people. These are children who grew up in our churches, sat in our Sunday School classes, and sang our songs. They memorized Bible verses and attended our VBS. They volunteered for the mission trip and led worship from the front of the congregation. They are Josiah and Sarah and Madison and Luke and all the other names that popped into your mind as you read that. Something needs to change and that something is us.
