In this episode, Anthony Mullins, interviews Cara Garrity. Cara is a graduate of our GCI Internship and Pastoral Resident Programs and currently serves as the Development Coordinator in our fellowship. Together they discuss the role of the Cross Generational Care Coordinator in the Faith Avenue.

“Cross Generational Care has to be defined in Jesus Christ. Because wholeness is in him. He is our true humanity. So, we can’t understand care apart from Jesus. Apart from who he is. Who he has made us to be, and who he is transforming us into. So, a simple way I like to think about the care piece, is discipleship. It is engaging and creating spaces for disciples to be made and for transformation in Christ. Cross Generational care is creating those spaces for discipleship to occur for all generations”
-Cara Garrity, GCI Development Coordinator
