Share This Article

Folks, here is a growing list of fantastic Intergenerational Ministry Resources including books and online resources.  In the next few weeks, I’ll be adding strategies and creative ways to use some of these resources to develop ministries or “tweek” the ministries you presently have in order to embrace and grow Intergenerational spaces in your church.   Including learning teams who are sharing a common vision is essential in the process.
