Senior Adult Opportunities







Mark your calendar to attend one of the three Senior Adult Ministry Regional Leadership Gatherings planned for this fall!  


The Gatherings will encourage ministers and lay leaders to recognize the value of their leadership as well as the world-changing value of missional senior adults!


Attendees will be inspired to affirm seniors to value their experiences, knowledge, and wisdom--and to infuse them with the knowledge that their neighbors, their families, and the world desperately need them!


Dr. Sandy Gregory, director of NCBAM, along with local senior adult leaders, will share insights on motivating, disciplining, and empowering seniors to continue blessing others and living in the irrevocable gifts and calling of God.


Each Gathering will also include music, regional highlights, round-table discussions, and a delicious lunch. Cost is only $10.




Reserve your space today!
