A lot of research has shown that to produce life-long disciples in the church we need integrate children and youth into the life of the congregation. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll be doing a series of videos reflecting on this idea as well as some strategies to do so.

“Intergenerational ministry” is a buzzword in youth ministry circles today, but often what this means in practice is “children and teens need to just be more like us”.  In this second video, I make the case that age-group ministries have a very important place in the church today, and wonder if maybe making our ministry “intergenerational” should be more focused on equipping adults to enter into the world of children and youth ministry.
