Operation CrossGen


Operation CrossGen


Operation CrossGenMission
To encourage intentional, inter-generational friendships

Primary goals
To build understanding, appreciation and communication between generations

To enable learning from and about one another across generations

To establish trusting relationships, strong enough to bear the weight of the gospel (in the case of an unbelieving participant – evangelism)

Secondary goals
Enhance ability to facilitate learning with people of generations other than one’s own

Grow in Christ through learning from one another (discipling)

Encourage those seeking God’s direction on his calling for their life and ministry

Entrust’s commitment
Through social media posts and emails:

Reminders of the idea as a whole

Reminders to pray for God to bring that cross-generational person into your life, and to pray for that friendship to bring honor to God

Semi-monthly suggestions/challenges

Encouragements to get others involved – no official start or end date so people can jump in anytime all year

Year-end summaries or stories from participants

Operation CrossGen participants’ commitment
Let Entrust know you’re interested (via Facebook, LinkedIn or our blog)

Pray, asking God to lead you to a cross-generational friendship

Or, ask God to show you who he’s already placed in your life, with whom to develop this type of friendship

Intentionally begin to ask questions, to seek understanding about your Operation CrossGen friend’s worldview, values, priorities, frustrations with your generation

Enter into that friend’s world – do things together, visit their workplace or school, just hang out

Check Entrust’s social media sites or your email for semi-monthly suggestions and challenges

Let us know how it’s going from time to time

So, whether you’re a “Paul,” (older) or a “Timothy” (younger), go find that friend and let the dialogue begin!
