Beyond Retirement: How Retirees Make the Best Evangelists
https://www.umcdiscipleship.org/resources/beyond-retirement-how-retirees-make-the-best-evangelists
Friday, April 13, 2018
10:00 am—12:00 Noon
Presenter:  Will Randolph, Director of Aging and Older-Adult Ministries
 
Google “Baby Boomer Evangelism,” and you will not find much, because the church has largely forgotten this virtually untapped army of volunteers who have time, experience, and passion for evangelism.  Why? Because many of our retired and retiring adults have never been trained in relationship evangelism techniques, and these techniques have often focused upon young-adult evangelism. This webinar specifically focuses upon how to recruit, train, and develop retirees to help in your disciple-making efforts and how to use retirees strategically to improve the outreach ministry of the church. This webinar features the stories of five retirees who have been successful in sharing their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.

Is your community changing?  Who are your new leaders?  How does community transformation shape contextual ministry in your area? Is building key relationships within the community challenging?  What should the focus be, and where should the church begin to develop its outreach mission? This webinar will explore general community information to help congregational leaders gain a greater understanding of needs, challenges, discipleship practices and ministry opportunities.
