REPORT: Jan. 13-15, 2016

legacy-coalitionAfter five months of praying, seeking and planning, twelve people arrived at Awana International Headquarters to birth the first ever (!) national organization exclusively for grandparents.  Catherine was one of these twelve who met, talking, strategizing and praying for the organization of Legacy Coalition.   Awana International agreed to have Legacy Coalition become a subsidiary.  A charter was drawn and each member signed.  It was agreed that the focus of this coalition is to encourage, inform and equip churches to reach the grandparents of their communities.  Living in a culture that says we are past our prime in life once we reach the age of 55 or 60, LC determined to fight this cultural battle by engaging churches.  The goal is to cast the biblical vision of Godly grandparenting. Then the Coalition will work to provide resources, tools and opportunities for networking and development.  A national conference was planned for November, 2016.
