Partner Associations


Christian Formation Collective

We have partnered with five associations to support age and stage formation across a lifetime of Christian formation. Church staff, leaders and volunteers can access the resources, projects and support that each of these organizations offer. Check back as we begin to highlight the projects, initiatives and resources that our office and the associations are partnering on.

Presbyterian Older Adult Ministry Network (POAMN)

POAMN is a network of people who are engaged in ministry with older adults. These people work in presbyteries and synods, they are leaders in congregations, and some serve in specialized ministries such as chaplains in care facilities and presbytery staff who are involved with older adult ministry committees. Each year POAMN produces a planning guide that can assist your congregation in older adult ministries.
