Aging and Ministry in the 21st Century

By Golden Cross Foundation Staff

Aging and MinistryThe church is in the hands of its elders. While the popular perception is that the aged are needy and infirm, Rick Gentzler affirms that the majority of older adults have plenty to give. The church needs to tap into their wisdom, energy, experience, and talents.

In addition to the practical issues of programming, Gentzler takes on more difficult topics of aging including chronic conditions, depression, and death. He also recommends that churches pay special attention to the needs of the Baby Boomer generation, since they are now becoming the older adults who will determine the church's path for years to come.
