Serve in Senior Ministry


Senior Ministry’s overriding goal is to foster an environment in which adults in mid to late life feel really welcomed and fully engaged in the ministry of God’s kingdom. Senior’s experiences and wisdom are embraced as valuable resources for:

  • Missional opportunities to serve as the hands and feet of Christ to the broken in our midst

Ministry Purpose – to offer experiences beyond the pew for seniors for encountering, embracing and emulating the living Christ.

Ministry Vision – to develop opportunities for persons encountering mid-life/late-life changes to “reinvent” themselves as God has equipped them through their previous years.
