I love senior adults--I am one! I understand that if we do not reach a younger generation, the local church will age and die as we do, but that does not mean we have to neglect ministry to and with seasoned saints! God wants His church to be multi-generational! Paul speaks of how younger men are to be discipled by older men and the elderly women are to teach the younger women how to be the wife, mother, and godly saint God desires (cf. Titus 2:1-10).
There is no excuse for your church not to grow. Last week, Anita Davies with NC Baptist Aging Ministries was with us to help us in outreach to Senior Adults. On our website, you can access the recording of her training. So much practical information is available on the NCBAM website. Here is the link:
Please get involved. Pray about how God can use you.
