Effective Church Ministry with Older Adults

From: Volume IV, Issue 1: Fall 1983 Pages 5-17


Under the analogy of the renovation of a rundown farm, this article shows that older adults must once again be restored to productive and fruitful Christian service. Their wisdom and experience must be utilized as a valuable resource for the church. Research involved an integration of the social theories of aging within a biblical framework to discover the most effective way to renew the honor and respect due them. Procedures for initiating and consolidating this ministry are spelled out in detail. Finally, the development of an effective organization will depend on goals and objectives determined by the leadership of the older adults themselves.
