“Serving Communities Obediently Through the Teachings of Christ”

In 2009, Scott United Methodist Church and the Rev. James C. Anyike started a new ministry called the Generation to Generation Conference. The purpose of G2G remains to bridge the gap between generations while addressing important issues facing the African American community of Indianapolis.

“During conference events, we seek to build a strong African American community through the sharing of knowledge necessary to create stable, dynamic individuals and families. Annually, we present workshops that provide life and love skills and community information.

We hope this year you will learn much from our workshops on keeping families together, researching your family history, living with mental and emotional illness, taking care of your finances, local politics from a young adult perspective and much more, including several events for youth and teens.

Additionally, we always showcase some of the best talent in the city. Then on Sunday, we come together to worship God. We hope you will enjoy this year’s G2G Conference.”
