YS Idea Lab: Intergenerational Youth Ministry
Wayne Rice is the co-founder of Youth Specialties and has had such an incredible influence on the world of youth ministry. In this YS Idea Lab, Wayne shares about the importance of intergenerational ministry and some ideas to help make it happen in your church:
In case you don’t have time to watch the full interview, here are a few key points that Wayne dives into:
– Everyone worships together. You’ve got to get the old and the young into the same room to learn how to worship alongside one another.
– Make an effort to give the spotlight to all generations. Bring members of different generations upfront to represent all different ages.
– Create intergenerational gatherings. Find ways to get different generations together so they can get to know each other and learn from one another.
– Make an extra effort for those individuals that don’t have a family. Utilize the intergenerational events to provide a family for those that come to the church without a family.
