Congregations seeking to transform give intentional focus to the interaction of various birth generations. They seek to keep the natural tendency toward age segregation from dividing their congregation. They have worship experiences, fellowship events, spiritual formation, and missional engagement that include people from various generations.
Their intentionality in this area includes specific measurements of progress in this area, and not falling back into old patterns. Who are the families and individuals that older members know personally and count as friends? Who are the younger people serving on core committees within the congregation who could be the next generation of leaders?
