Course Offerings

The following courses are designed to provide a working knowledge of the components of an effective, growing senior adult ministry. They provide excellent continuing education for lay or staff persons concerned with leading an effective older adult ministry.

101 INTRODUCTION TO THE "AGE WAVE"

The "over 55 years" population group in America is growing three times faster than the national average. Business, education, health care, churches, and other social institutions are feeling the impact. This course presents an overview of the "age wave" which is impacting the American culture.

102 CHARACTERISTICS OF A SUCCESSFUL SENIOR ADULT PROGRAM

Most senior adult programs in churches tend to be "maintenance-oriented" and focus on service to existing members. There are an increasing number of churches, however, that are focusing on this "target group" of people and developing creative ministries that are successfully attracting and reaching senior'. This course examines case studies and characteristics of such programs.

201 STARTING AND GROWING SMALL GROUPS FOR SENIOR ADULTS

The caring, sharing, and personal growth that occurs in small groups is an important part of a holistic life. This course helps students understand the dynamics of a small group and directs the application of these principles to the senior adult ministry.

202 VOLUNTEERISM FOR SENIOR ADULTS

With the greater available time many senior adults now have, these persons provide a natural resource for the church's volunteer ministries. But there are important elements of successfully recruiting and involving volunteers which leaders need to know. This course examines the dynamics of volunteerism and encourages application of these principles to senior adult ministry.

301 EVANGELIZING SENIOR ADULTS

Do unchurched older adults come to Christian faith for similar reasons as unchurched younger adults? Is evangelism strategy "cross-generational"? Indications suggest there are major differences. This course examines the conversion process in various older adults, and helps students develop strategies for evangelism in their church.
