NASHVILLE, Tenn. June 30, 2016 /Discipleship Ministries/ – As the over-60 age group explodes with aging baby boomers, church leaders will gather in September to learn new ways to take advantage of an extraordinary evangelistic opportunity to engage people who sometimes are spiritual but not religious, or have left the church.
Boomerstock, hosted by the Office on Aging and Older Adult Ministries at Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church, will be the first comprehensive study of how the church can reach members of a generation who had been previously lost.
“This event is an opportunity for church leaders to come and learn both from people who are extremely knowledgeable of the baby-boomer generation and from each other about what is working and how we can creatively explore new ideas,” said Will Randolph, director of the Office of Aging and Older Adult Ministries.
Each annual conference has been invited to send representatives to Boomerstock, which is scheduled for Sept. 28 - Oct. 1 in Nashville. Others who would like to attend are also welcome. For more information about the event and to register, go to http://bit.ly/28YbXTw.
