Title

Trends and challenges for ministry among North America's largest generation.

Publication Date

Fall 2008

Abstract

The baby boomers, the generation born between 1946 and 1964, are aging differently than previous generations. The events that shaped this generation and the sheer size of the cohort suggest that the aging baby boomers will have significant influence on the culture of aging. As a result, Christian baby boomers will bring different expectations and demands to their church and ministry life that will reshape the way ministry with adults past 60 is construed.
