Generate 2019

Despite much talk in recent years around Intergenerational Ministry, a present and pressing challenge for churches and their leaders is to develop effective intergenerational practice that encourages discipleship across all ages.

Focused on those with strategic leadership responsibility in the life of a church – including ministers, pastors, ministry leaders and key volunteers – Generate 2019: Intergenerational Ministry Foundations will explore the theological foundation of intergenerational ministry, the place of intergenerational ministry in a church’s strategy and issues around the implementation of intergenerational ministry.

Come along and be inspired and equipped for more effective ministry in your local context!
