Tools for your grandparenting ministry
Mission Statement & Ministry Plan
The church that is beginning a grandparenting ministry has a process of steps to accomplish to establish a solid foundation. Two of these steps are the formation of a mission statement and a ministry plan for a Christian Grandparenting Ministry that is intentional in purpose and practice. This document, which is the guide for an actual grandparenting ministry at a church, can serve as a model for other churches to utilize in forming their own basis for their grandparenting ministry.
One of the challenges to grandparenting ministry is the mistaken, culturally driven idea that it is only for “old people”, and not relevant for the church as a whole. This can become a barrier to a thriving ministry that reaches grandparents of all ages, and indeed the whole church family. This article drives right to the heart of the issue and helps share the true picture of a healthy grandparenting ministry in the local church that is multigenerational and intergenerational.
