Encouraging the Elderly While Teaching the Younger

Brian Croft suggests three wisdom principles for ministering to the older members of a congregation. He introduces his thoughts with these words:

“As churches revitalize and do so with younger people, one of the ramifications of this is the alienation of the older members. As a younger pastor is brought in to pastor, more folks his age possibly begin to arrive, and unintentionally, the older members begin to feel squeezed out. Having faced this season of unintentional alienation, here are a few ways I have found to encourage the elderly in the congregation and unite them with the younger in the midst of such a transition.”
