Prayer as Mission: Rethinking Faithful Ministry for Older Adults
MetadataShow full item record
Older adults are increasingly becoming a larger percentage of the population in American society. With no change in this reality on the horizon, the western church must be more intentional in how it engages this aging population in ministry. Far too often, the church evaluates the ministry involvement of its older adults on the basis of “production” of younger generations, leading to a devaluing of their contributions. Through the formation of a specific type of small group for older adults, this project considers the metrics of older adult ministry on the basis of a life of prayer as both faithful and effective mission.
