Why did we create this resource?
Intergenerational Relationships are the Future of the Church
Young adults of faith long for a deeper connection to older generations as well as guidance for their adult journey. Not surprisingly though, their desire is to be invested in, rather than talked at.
Older generations are beginning to understand the importance of leaving a legacy of faith by investing in future generations of the church. Knowing the best way to make that investment can be challenging.
What could happen if adults were given a Kingdom vision for meaningful investment? What could happen if they were provided with some practical tools to usher intergenerational conversations into places of spiritual depth? Our hope is that this website will provide both a strategy and a means of investing in the next generation.

The media and reflection materials are not intended to be "curriculum" or teach specific truths. They are intended to facilitate conversation that will lead to a robust discussion as well as allow for discernment of what God's truth is for that topic.
The linked material on this site does not necessarily reflect the theological stance of the authors or the institutions they are associated with. Content may be chosen for its value to spark good discussion and is not meant to be considered "curriculum".
