Insight 335: FaithSoaring Churches Address Multiple Generations
Congregations seeking to transform should consider the role of becoming a MultiChurch as they journey toward transformation. MultiChurch is a concept with many aspects nurtured by Travis Collins of Fresh Expressions US. One aspect is multiple birth generations.
Congregations are usually composed of people from multiple birth generations. Each birth generation has unique characteristics and approaches to worship, fellowship, spiritual formation, and missional engagement. Congregations seeking to transform develop capacities to address these approaches among up to three birth generations. Addressing more generations takes capacities not always present in every congregation, and can lead to unhealthy conflict if capacities are missing.
