Product Description

How ministry leaders can help older adults be a vital part of Christian community?

With the explosion of the older adult population, this important book explores the opportunities and challenges that this presents for the Christian community. Amy Hanson challenges us to let go of many old stereotypes regarding aging and embrace a new paradigm that sees older adults as active, healthy and capable of making significant contributions.
  • Debunks the myths of aging that keep us from fully embracing the potential of people in life's second half
  • Offers suggestions on how to re-invent ministry with older adults
  • Focuses on unleashing older adults to serve and make an impact on churches and congregations
  • A volume in the Leadership Network series


The author shows church leaders how they can unleash the power of the baby boomer population to strengthen their congregations.
