According to recent statistics the number of seniors steadily increases each year not only in developed countries but also in developing ones as a result of the bettering of living conditions. Therefore, there is a great need for senior ministry to be actively supporting the older generations.
Seniors can play a great role in the church. They have lived long lives and have accumulated experience on so many aspects of human existence that that make of them a valuable source of knowledge that can be transferred to younger generations.
Christian seniors know the value of mercy, compassion and love towards their neighbor. In the final stages of their lives God reveals to them the importance of being righteous, of opening their hearts to the Holy Spirit and to the grace of the Father. Senior can transfer those values not only to their congregations but also to all people in their communities.
Ministers and senior adults in church are invited to organize and perform activities in which seniors will play the main role. By working for Senior Ministry, elders in church can make a profound difference in their lives of those around them.
