Current Writing Projects:
- The Generative Church: Drawing upon Erik Erikson’s concept of “generativity” (“the interest in establishing and guiding the next generation,” Erikson, IYC, 138), this collection of chapters by eleven insightful contributors from Canada, Australia, South Africa, the UK, and the USA explores the characteristics of generative congregations. In addition to serving as editor of this project currently in development, I provide the book’s introductory and concluding chapters.
- The Generationally Intelligent Leader: This book project employs the theoretical framework of generational intelligence to help Christian leaders navigate the generational challenges they encounter within their churches and within themselves.
- The Intergenerationally Sticky Church: This book project explores six important ingredients of intergenerational cohesion within the church and outlines practical proposals to help churches strengthen ties between people of diverse generations.
