Pilgrims Together: Building an Intergenerational Faith CommunityDesignation: DMIN 8453
Churches that want to become more intentionally intergenerational typically raise two questions. The first question is, How can we bring the generations back together? The second questioneven more importantis, Why? Or, in other words, what is the evidence that intergenerational approaches are beneficial? The why question is the driving focus of this course.
Students will investigate biblical and theological foundations and explore empirical, sociological, and theoretical support for cross-age Christian practices. In addition, the class will address the “how” question, discussing (and experiencing) several successful emerging intergenerational practices.
