Church Leadership Conference

Ministry to Multiple Generations

Every generation exhibits unique characteristics that make it difficult for ministers to preach messages that are relevant and inspirational across the generational spectrum of a congregation.  Engaging members of each generation in ways that inspire worship and encourage growth, without excluding members of another generation, is a difficult task.  How does the church foster growth among all generations and reach out to multiple generations in the community? 

Johnson University Tennessee invites ministry staff and church leaders to be our guests at this one-day Church Leadership Conference on Saturday, March 11, 2017, as we seek to make our church ministry relevant to multiple generations.
