Reflections from the Audience:

"This lineup of presenters was dreamy. I feel like I got to “meet,” in a sense, a bunch of people whom I have really admired in ministry— people who have been on my bookshelves, and AirPods (with a podcast), and in my email inbox (with newsletters) for a long time." - Michelle Harris - Gloyer

"I am energized about thinking differently about intergenerational ministry. I’ve always thought it was about everyone together which feels like plunging our congregation into the deep end which can be overwhelming. From this summit I’m now thinking about how to wade in with starting small and intentionally with trying to bring 2 generations together at a time." - Lee Ritchie

"It was really wonderful to watch this summit and feel like even if there is still so much more to do to support children, youth, and families. My congregation is on the right track and in line with what other churches are seeing and doing." - Theo Burbank
