Generational Theory
in the Church

Being and Becoming a Multigenerational Church-Unpacking Generational Theory with Rev. Dr. Karl Travis

The blessing and the curse of healthy congregations is that we have four to five living generations, each with a unique worldview and organizing principles, gathered in a body committed to being a Beloved Community that focuses more on what unites us than what divides us.

The Rev. Dr. Karl Travis wowed participants at the 2016 Presbyterian Leadership Enrichment Event with his insights drawn from generational theory, sparking multiple requests for more time and greater detail spent on this important topic. Karl returned to us with an extended format, designed to help church teams consider how differing generational approaches can best be addressed in a way that honors all and does not set up unintended barriers to participation.  The event was Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1; sponsored by The Congregational Resourcing Team of the Presbytery of New Covenant, and made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Vision Initiative Fund.
