Why Intergenerate?

If you want to bring the generations together in your church, this is the conference designed just for you!

InterGenerate is about ten weeks away, and interest continues to build. Participants are coming from Canada, the UK, Australia, and South Africa, and from about twenty states (so far). Christians from a wide spectrum of traditions have registered, including those from Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Churches of Christ, Disciples of Christ, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Reformed, Seventh Day Adventist, Vineyard, and several community churches.

All this to say, it will be a rich, thick conversation, and we hope you will join us.

InterGenerate is a conference designed for both practitioners and academics seeking to enhance life-long faith formation through intergenerational Christian experiences. Senior pastors, professors, age-level ministers, sociologists, church consultants - anyone who seeks to better understand and ultimately cultivate more intentionally intergenerational discipleship practices will find something at InterGenerate.

What is Intergenerate?

 

We believe that intergenerational Christian experiences uniquely nurture Christian spiritual formation across all ages, and we’re committed to promoting intergenerational practices in faith communities. How? By bringing together practitioners and academics from a broad spectrum of Christian traditions to

  • disseminate current intergenerational research,
  • discern common intergenerational principles,
  • discuss the challenges and benefits of intergenerational ministry, and
  • share effective intergenerational practices.

At InterGenerate, ministry leaders will be inspired, empowered, and equipped to implement more intergenerational approaches in their faith communities and researchers will have opportunities to share their findings and encourage one another. Along the way, both groups will interact with one another, creating a collaborative synergy that will generate fresh intergenerational ministry implications and perspectives. Sound exciting? We think so!
