Churches and communities are experiencing an unprecedented ministry challenge and opportunity over the next 25-40 years in responding to an aging population. There needs to be a more cooperative and informed approach to discerning, planning and resourcing local church ministries to serve the varied needs of older adults and their families. This symposium aims to bring together participants for consultation and mutual encouragement through plenary input sessions, guided discussion, resourcing workshops and other network building activities. The topics and issues addressed will be helpful for either those currently involved or those interested in developing new and connecting ministries with older adults. Pastors, church leaders, health/social care professionals and anyone interested in learning about and making a contribution to this emerging missional challenge and opportunity are encouraged to attend.
* We are encouraging you and others from your church to plan to join us for a time of networking, consultation and vision formation, as we respond to this emerging ministry/mission challenge and opportunity. Watch here for more information over the coming weeks.
Dr. Paul Pearce, Dr. Paul Stevens, and Rev. Fay Puddicombe
