Item description for The Graying of the Flock: A New Model for Ministry by James L. Knapp, Ph.d....
Overview The USA is in the midst of a dramatic transformation. Our population is aging at such a rapid rate that we recently passed a major milestone: for the first time in history our nation has more senior citizens than teenagers. This means that many churches are in the early stages of a great opportunity for ministry with senior adults. This practical, informative, and inspiring book shows how to seize this opportunity. Surveying current gerontological literature, it shows how churches can minister with its older members, not simply to them.
