Introduction: What does it mean to be a cross-generational church—a completely mobilized church? Explore practical advice for how to get there.

Summary:  

  • The struggle is real: 80% of the work is often done by 20% of the people
  • The COVID pandemic has forced many churches to rethink ministry
  • How to make cross-generational ministry—valuing and involving all the members—happen?
    • Think of the body of the church and the personal nature of it—this isn’t present with technology
    • Make the least-valued parts prized
      • Young children
      • Older adults
      • Minorities
      • Those with special needs
      • Young adults
      • Singles
    • Consider these points when you incorporate cross-generational activities:
      • The challenge of a wide gap between the individuals’ abilities
      • Ministry with and not for
      • Multigenerational formats—empower and value those people
      • It’s more work!
      • Model what you want
      • It’s worth it!
    • Cross-generational service—how to get everyone involved, accessible
      • Mission or service projects
      • Leaders must model what they envision for their church
      • Start with where you are, build as you go
