Grandparents are incredibly important to their grandkids. They are uniquely positioned to spiritually influence their grandkids. And they have a Biblical mandate to do so.
There are approximately 30 million grandparents in the U.S. Each one is a potential influence in the lives of their grandchildren. Most Christians would agree, but so little is being done to challenge and equip them.
Legacy Coalition is here to encourage churches to minister to grandparents as they encourage and influence their grandchildren. Our desire is for grandparents to look beyond the pleasures of the retirement culture and invest in the lives of their grandchildren.
Legacy Coalition raises the importance of grandparenting through training, discussion, seminars and webinars as well as recommended resources shared by ministry partners. Legacy Coalition is committed to elevating grandparenting above the larger seniors ministries of the church today.
Yes, the grandparenting relationship has incredible potential for discipleship. Legacy Coalition wants grandparents to reap the rewards of their ministry to their grandkids.
Legacy Coalition Sees the Need
Grandparents with incredible potential to influence the next generation — and a Biblical mandate to do it — are generally overlooked, under-resourced, ignored, and mislabeled.
Christian grandparents are to influence multiple generations for Christ.
A Great Need
Grandparents themselves often lack vision, need support and community, or don’t know of tools which can help.
A New Course
We believe it is time to chart a new course — to engage this incredible potential by envisioning, encouraging, and equipping grandparents — through ministries in the local church.
What We Do
To know that our legacy of faith in Jesus Christ will outlive us in our grandchildren and the generations that follow.
To build a coalition of ministries that champion intentional, Christ-like grandparenting.
To be a platform for coalition ministries to engage the Church in the task of envisioning and equipping grandparents to impact future generations who know, love and serve Christ.
What Others Are Saying
