Intergenerational Ministry

Intergenerational Team Vision: That young people become life-long disciples of Christ within missional families and faith communities.

Intergenerational Team Key Directions

  1. We resource families to be missional. (UC SA Key Direction 2)
  2. We advocate for an all age, inclusive, approach to congregational life. (UC SA Key Direction 1, part 4)
  3. We provide direction to congregations to intentionally disciple children, youth and young adults through and for mission. (UC SA Key Direction 2, part 1)
  4. We facilitate ‘mountain top’ experiences for young people that are beyond the scope of single congregations. (UC SA Key Direction 2,all 4 parts)
  5. We support and develop leaders in all of the above aspects of ministry with and by young people. (UC SA Key Direction 3, part 3)
