The Denver Church of Christ, along with the ICOC Youth and Family Service Team and the Children’s Ministry of the San Diego Church of Christ, is thrilled to host the 2017 North American Family Conference, “ALL GENERATIONS”.
“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.” Psalm 78:4
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
ALL GENERATIONS. From the beginnings of biblical history, God was at work within family relationships to fulfill his dream of reaching the world with his love. Through the ensuing centuries, his spoken word to Israel and to the Christian community reflects the vision he has for God-centered families to serve as the seedbed of faith for each generation.
The biblical imperative of ALL GENERATIONS is not only for our parents, but it is also a clarion call to the entire church – campus, singles, and empty nesters. When we link arms as a multi-generational church, we can all serve as not only parents, but also as mentors, teachers, babysitters, friends, and examples to our young people. They will multiply our passions to serve the poor and to win the world to Christ.
The impact of a spiritually thriving “cradle to campus” church is already being felt. Our children have grown up to lead mission teams, shine in their workplaces, strengthen their campus and youth ministries, and start their own Christ-centered homes. And we believe this is just the beginning…imagine the potential!
ALL GENERATIONS is a multi-track conference for leaders of churches, youth ministries, children’s ministries, and parents. On Friday, September 1st, the program will primarily focus on how to develop, lead, and integrate thriving ministries for our younger generations within our churches. There will be inspiring lessons, sharing of best practices, brainstorming and more.
On Saturday, September 2nd, ALL GENERATIONS will feature a unique parenting track bringing together some of our fellowship’s most trusted and experienced teachers. We are especially eager to provide workshops for those families with adopted children and for those with exceptional (special needs) children that will run both days.
ALL GENERATIONS will culminate on September 3rd, as we worship together with the Denver Church of Christ.
We look forward to seeing you on Labor Day weekend. May God bless our efforts as we strive to glorify him throughout ALL GENERATIONS!
