Talkin’ ‘Bout the Generations

Bridging the gaps from generation to generation in our congregations is a challenge we constantly face, and just when we think we get a handle on it all, a new generation shows us we need to bridge again.

First, we will examine the interplay of the three core elements of generational theory as defined by William Strauss and Neil Howe: generational types, life stages, and historical cycles. We will hold for each other the question of where we are generationally as a denomination that is being called to respond to the cycle we are in now.

Then we will explore our own generational perspectives on ministry and congregational life, and through breakout groups and case studies explore changing generational dynamics affect our pastoral care, religious education, leadership, and stewardship.
