In his latest book on Intergenerational Ministry, John Roberto invites readers to imagine what ministry might look like in the 21st century. Providing insight, questions, and direction, Roberto guides the readers as they create a vision for future ministry that welcomes all persons as members of the Body of Christ. As group members read and discuss this book, the hope is that together we will imagine and create a ministry that affirms all people’s joint-participation in God’s work in and for the transformation of the world.
Purchase the book (Individual copies are $20 plus $6 for shipping).

John Roberto of LifelongFaith Associates is editor of the journal Lifelong Faith, and works as a consultant to churches and national organizations, teaches courses and conducts workshops in faith formation, and has authored books and program manuals in faith formation. John created the theory and practice of Generations of Faith—an intergenerational, lifelong approach to faith formation; and administered the five-year Lilly Endowment funded project to develop lifelong faith formation in Catholic parishes across the U.S. He is the founder and was director of the Center for Ministry Development, where he worked for 28 years. In addition to his work at Lifelong Faith, John works on the Vibrant Faith team as Special Projects Coordinator involved in research, training, and consulting. His publications include Seasons of Adult Faith Formation (editor and co-author, 2015) Reimagining Faith Formation for the 21st Century (2015), Generations Together: Caring, Celebrating, Learning Praying, and Serving Faithfully (co-authored, 2014), Faith Formation 2020: Designing the Future of Faith (2010), The Spirit and Culture of Youth Ministry (co-authored, 2010), and Becoming a Church of Lifelong Learners (2006).
John has completely updated his website with the Reimagining Faith Formation content. The website is organized around the content of the book and incorporates video presentations, PowerPoint presentations, and “going deeper” content. I have more content to add, but what is there will be helpful to people.
