In 2016 your congregation will get older

People are getting older!

The Baby Boomers have defined so many cultural trends of the last 100 years and they are just starting to define “retirement” and “the older years”. Life expectancy is set to continue to rise for the next 20-30 years to point where a larger percentage of the population will be living past 80 years of age than ever before. Some potential impacts of this trend might be …

  • Boomer Pastors // All those boomer pastors that now in their 60s … might very well be serving well into their 70s. What impact will that have on passing leadership to the next generation?
  • Half Time // People will be looking at the “second half” of their lives and wondering how they can move from success to significance. How can the church provide a place for these leaders looking to invest their abilities into reaching the next generation?
  • Senior Targeted Churches? // When is someone going to come out and launch a church targeted at people over 60 and their families?

      Bound to happen because of all drugs we get through our livestock and what we take as medicines from our Drs.
      They do need to target the older folks also instead of just letting them ride off into the sunset
