The subject of Intergenerational Cells often arises when churches
consider the question, " What shall we do with the children?" when transitioning
into cell. May we strongly recommend that you take as much care over that decision as you
do with the decision to transition, and take advantage of the resources available to you
both in transitioning and moving on with Intergenerational Cells. Here is the
opportunity to redeem what has been stolen from the Body of Christ e.g. the empowerment of
parents a place for families to remain in tact within the church experiential learning for
children (Deuteronomy 6 4-7) integration of children and young people within the body of
Christ (John 17 "that they may be one": Psalm 133: modelling (1 Kings 8 25) the
restoration of the generational blessing (Psalm 78 1-6) the interdependence of the
generations (Samuel and Eli: Matthew 18.3) putting the lonely in families (Psalm 68.6)
fathers to the fatherless Malachi 4 network evangelism ownership and inclusiveness
for everyone (all ages).

When a Child asks to be Baptised A handbook for pastors, cell leaders,
parents and sponsors. This book seeks to answer the many questions that are raised when a
child asks to be baptised and to provide a clear and thorough explanation of the meaning
and implications of baptism with step by step diagrams helping both adult and child to
understand the biblical injunction to "repent and be baptised"
These may be hosted by local churches, forums, streams or denominations. A manual is
always used and the more people who attend from the church the greater will be the vision
and anointing imparted to that church.
This introductory seminar is visionary with a strong Biblical foundation. It is very
practical having a strong emphasis on the outworking of the vision in each local church.
It is essential for the senior leadership to attend so they can carry the vision to their
own congregation. However the way forward is made so simple that anyone can participate in
and lead intergenerational cells.
2nd seminar "One Step Further"
For churches who have had senior leadership attend the basic seminar, or who already have
a good understanding of the Biblical foundations , values and practice of
intergenerational cells. This seminar is very practical... including interaction,
practical hands on experience and with the possibility of involving children in the
greater part of it. It addresses issues such as network evangelism, prayer meetings for
sponsoring, writing materials for the IG cell meeting, equipping the
children, the Intergenerational celebration etc
Comments from delegates
" I found the seamier very challenging and exciting stuff! I feel intergenerational
cells are certainly right and look forward to seeing them at work"
"I found the seminar very interesting and challenging stuff. I am very excited about
what I believe is God's purpose for this nation and I will share the vision with the
church. We are presently halfway through a pilot cell. Please pray that we can impart
these values effectively"
"Thank you for sharing the vision and your heart with us. God has encouraged me in a
new and refreshing way how to pray for my church and pastors. Again I do see God's
honouring of the children. They are so valuable to Him"
"The manual is a precious tool and I am, excited about taking it back to my own
country with me."
"Very challenging. It was such and amazing concept, exciting to see how much the
children could be involved, encouraged and moving in their own ministries."
"I found the seminar very thought provoking and exciting. It challenged me to think
about church and confirmed lots of things I feel God has been speaking to me about church
and sharing His life. Being in the demonstration cell touched me. I find sharing the
gospel hard.... and guess what was the topic for the cell! I felt Jesus meeting me in it.
This will certainly benefit every age group!"
"Today I belong to a cell with adults only. I am now totally convinced that it
works to have children in the cell. And also that it is the heart of God that we are ONE
family, or community"
"The teaching was very relevant, and I became aware of my need to have my mind
renewed about the place of children in the midst of what God is doing"
