Intergenerational, Intentional Discipling: Webinar Presentation
I think that it's pretty safe to say that we all agree with the fact that youth who have significant relationships with adults in their life have a greater chance of staying connected with church and matters of faith. However, with our best intentions, we have created mentoring “programs” often pairing up a youth with one adult to build a friendship. For many reasons, these match-making adventures can often feel inauthentic, forced, and maybe even coerced.
Yet we also know that one of the top things youth desire in regards to matters of faith is to have authentic relationships. See the quandary?
So what are we to do? How do we get the intentionality of a mentoring relationship without the inauthenticity?
In this webinar, Michele, along with her Exploring Ministry Class at Hesston College, explores three ways to work at this:
- Go covert
- Engage in mutual, authentic relationships where both adults and youth are giving and receiving (triads)
- Preach and teach about this from the pulpit
