A Renewed Vision for Ministering to Older Adults
Our society is aging rapidly, as Baby Boomers move into their retirement years.
The number of people 65 and older is projected to almost double in the United States, reaching over 94 million by 2060, according to the National Council on Aging.
For leaders to serve this population well, we need to understand them better.
To explore the problems older adults are facing—and the exciting roles they can play in churches—Barna has partnered with Worship Anew to study aging generations.
We’ve taken our findings and crafted a new report called Aging Well: A Renewed Vision for Ministering to Older Adults.
In this report, you’ll find answers to important questions, like:
- What do senior adults require to make the most of their later-in-life journey, even with the obstacles of aging?
- What does purpose and vocation look like for older adults who sometimes struggle with chronic pain and reduced mobility?
- How can churches, caretakers, parachurch leaders, community groups and others better serve seniors—seeing them as assets, rather than a liability, essential, rather than inconsequential?
For decades, Worship Anew’s mission as a media ministry has been centered on encouraging seniors (including those who are homebound) with the gospel. This project is an expression of that—and of Barna's commitment to speak to the potential of the whole Church.
Together, our hope is that you’ll view the data in your context and be inspired to uniquely equip and empower the “seasoned saints” in your congregation and community.
