Intergenerational ministry is difficult to define because it is a philosophy of ministry rather than a program – a way of being rather than doing. Its goal is to strategically build significant and meaningful interactions between the generations within the structures of a congregation. The key components of intergenerational ministry are interaction and intentionality. Intergenerational ministry is more than bringing the generations into proximity with one another.
Intergenerational ministry is about culture change and begins with congregations making intentional intergenerational relationships a core value of their church.
