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

The Intergen Team have launched a blog that is aimed at leaders in ministry with children, families, youth and young adults to encourage following Jesus in everyday life. The blog hopes to develop intergenerational discipleship and build leadership capacity, as well as invite leaders to share stories and resources.

‘Connecting Families, Nurturing Faith’ is a resource for ministry leaders to encourage discipleship across households. It includes a step by step process, a checklist, ideas to share with families and information about four recommended resources.

This is not another discipleship resource but is a tool to assist ministry leaders to choose a resource, to communicate with families to nurture faith at home and to encourage families to connect with each other, particularly while we cannot meet face-to-face. (Click the image to download.)
