Church Partners

We believe the local church is the best avenue for grandparenting ministry to take place. Our desire is to partner with churches whose leaders encourage, envision, and equip grandparents to be intentional disciplers of their grandchildren. The word, “Coalition” in our name represents our partnership with churches having a common commitment to grandparenting. Together, we see the potential for discipleship in the grandparent role, and are doing something about it.

We encourage you to do two things: (1) Start a grandparenting ministry in your church. The “Launch” section below guides you in doing that. (2) Join the Legacy Coalition. You may choose to sign up for free, or contribute to our ministry through paying the registration fee. The fee is designed to help us with our ministry expenses, and to help you through discounts and free resources.

STARTING A LEGACY GRANDPARENTING MINISTRY IN YOUR CHURCH

Here are six steps to successfully launching an effective grandparenting ministry in your church. Let us know how we can help you each step along the way. Join our coalition of churches to get valuable resources as well as network with others so we all can become stronger together.

STEP 1: CORE GROUP.

A team of key leaders in the congregation is established that will be committed to launching a grandparenting ministry in the church.

STEP 2: PASTOR OWNER.

A pastor agrees to the implementation of a grandparenting ministry, and is willing to provide guidance and support to the core team.

When these two are in place, we ask churches to register with us, but with the registration, we expect them to commit to four more steps. These steps can be resourced through materials Legacy Coalition’s resource providers make available.

STEP 3: VISION EVENT.

The church will schedule and hold a seminar, class, small group, or whatever fits the culture of the local church—whose purpose is to cast vision for spiritually intentional grandparenting.

STEP 4: HABIT CHANGE.

A regular focus on grandparenting is infused into the life of the church (habit change): maybe through a prayer time in the adult classes, maybe through a newsletter, or some other practical method.

STEP 5: EQUIPPING OPPORTUNITIES.

On a repeating basis – from once a quarter to once a year, fellowship and learning opportunities will be created that will practically equip grandparents and remind them of the vision.

STEP 6: A GRAND ACTIVITY.

The church will hold a special event for grandparents and grandchildren—maybe a fun day of activities, maybe a weekend camp.
