Cultivating Intergenerational Worship

by Will Whittaker

Cultivating Intergenerational Worship is designed as a resource for current and aspiring worship leaders, worship teams, pastors, and church staffs who desire to develop a unified corporate worship mindset in their local churches, no matter their size or worship style. Scripture-based and filled with practical application, this resource will guide you and your team to cultivate a worship ministry for all ages that strives for biblical unity while considering the uniqueness of your own community of faith. Developing an intergenerational worship ministry means valuing and investing in each person in the Body of Christ, regardless of age or ability. This investment ensures the church of tomorrow will value a biblical worship mindset and sustain the message of the gospel for generations to come.
