Abstract

The church is faced with the challenges of the times, where many changes occur in the church, both the social background of the people, forms of liturgy, Koinonia, the attitude of the priest, and others. The fact that, this affects the enthusiasm of people to church, especially young people. The decline in the presence of young people, indicates a decline in enthusiasm in their worship. So this can be said as a sharp illustration of the separation of young people from the church. Joas Adiprasetya's ideas about the Church of friendship and Diana Butler Bass about The Practicing Congregation can help give ideas to problems. Church friendship, namely 1) realizing the Trinity in present church life and 2) Spirituality of the Friendship Church has values ??and forms (open, accepting, authentic, and trusting). The author proposes an intergenerational ministry approach as expressed by Allan G. Harkness, that this model gives high value to a mutualistic and equal community among church members.   Gereja dihadapkan pada tantangan jaman, dimana banyak perubahan yang terjadi di dalam gereja, baik latar belakang sosial umat, bentuk liturgi, koinonia, sikap pendeta, dan lainnya. Kenyataan bahwa, hal ini mempengaruhi pada antusias umat untuk bergereja, khususnya kaum muda. Penurunan kehadiran kaum muda, menandakan adanya kemunduran antusias dalam beribadah mereka. Sehingga ini dapat dikatakan sebagai gambaran tajam tentang keterpisahan kaum muda dengan gereja. Ide Joas Adiprasetya tentang Gereja persahabatan dan Diana Butler Bass tentang The Practicing Congregation dapat membantu memberikan ide terhadap permasalahan. Persahabatan gereja, yaitu 1) mewujudkan Trinitas dalam kehidupan bergereja masa kini dan 2) Spiritualitas Gereja Persahabatan memiliki nilai dan bentuk (terbuka, menerima, otentik, dan percaya). Penulis mengusulkan pendekatan intergenerational ministry seperti yang diungkapkan Allan G. Harkness, bahwa model ini memberikan nilai yang tinggi terhadap komunitas yang mutualistik dan setara di antara anggota gereja.
