About The Connectional Journey
The idea behind The Connectional Journey is to provide ideas to create a space where all generations old, young and the in-between can be shaped by God’s Story through Family Ministries and Intergenerational Experiences. All of us, parents/grandparents and Ministry Directors need to develop strategies to reach our young people’s hearts so they can rest in Jesus until they have such joy over His beauty and what He’s done for them that it spills out into the way they live.
This website includes podcasts that were created to help churches design intergenerational worship experiences that brings all ages in the family of God together. In these worship designs, there are ideas for including children in worship for our Covid-19 Safe Spaces during these unprecedented times. Family Devotions connecting with educational goals are also included for creative hands-on messages for sharing. Also, outlines are provided for using classic children’s/young people’s literature in a creative way as a springboard for faith formation.
My prayer is that this website will help to connect people to Jesus in creative ways each and every week and to make sure families are fueled with Jesus on their faith journey as parents and grandparents follow Deuteronomy 6:4-9
