The Institute for Christian Spirituality at Lipscomb University

The Institute for Christian Spirituality and Lipscomb University look forward to hosting and co-sponsoring (with GenOn) the InterGenerate Conference in 2017.

The Institute for Christian Spirituality (ICS) was launched in 2010 as an innovative expression of Lipscomb University’s commitment to cultivate the spirituality of the church and its leaders. Its mission is to nurture discipleship to Christ by cultivating a deeper awareness of and participation in the Holy Spirit’s activity among us, within us, and through us in the world.

ICS pursues this mission to cultivate a vibrant spirituality by providing conferences, retreats, and formational programs such as

  • Healthy Churches

  • The Ministry of Reconciliation

  • Enter the Story

  • Pilgrims Together 

  • The Ministry of Spiritual Direction

  • Senior Minister’s Sabbath 

ICS was also proud to host the international Children's Spirituality Conference in 2016 at Lipscomb, and we are looking forward to embracing more fully intergenerational Christian formation by co-sponsoring InterGenerate.

OUR VISION: A world filled with thriving Christian communities

OUR WORK: GenOn Ministries equips churches to build and nurture relationships of faith with God through Jesus Christ by...

We provide training, consulting, and resources.

  • Intergenerational Ministry - Where churches bring together at least two generations in planned and purposeful settings that are beneficial to all. We provide training, consulting, and resources.

  • Youth Summits - Summer youth conferences that are modeled after LOGOS in Estes Park, Colorado and Wheeling, West Virginia. Held every July.
