The Power of Intergenerational Play in an Online Era
Leader -Jason Brian Santos

In the spring of 2020 the world shut down because of the threat of the COVID-19 virus and many churches began holding worship services virtually. Although attempts were made to integrate youth and children into these new online offerings, in many faith communities these efforts proved futile. With no end in sight, we must begin considering what intergenerational formation could look like in a hybrid-online congregation. Join Jason Brian Santos as he explores how a robust theology of play can change how we think about online worship and Christian education, creating rich opportunities for intergenerational faith formation.

Previously, he served as the national director for Christian Formation for the Presbyterian Church (USA), where he is an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament. He holds a Ph.D. in practical theology from Princeton Theological Seminary, where he also earned his Masters of Divinity. He is the author of A Community Called Taizé (IVP, 2008) and co-author of the forthcoming revised edition of Intergenerational Christian Formation (IVP Academic, 2022). Jason currently resides in an almost 150 year old historic church manse in Lake City, with his wife, Shannon and his two sons, Judah and Silas (aka Tutu).
