Pilgrims Together: Building an Intergenerational Faith Community

Designation: 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 question—even more important—is, “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.
