Moving Older Adults Off the Sidelines and Back into the Game

Wes and Judy Wick lead a dynamic ministry called, YES! (Young Enough to Serve). I have known both of them for several years and we share a similar passion for ministry with older adults. This video that their son produced is outstanding! It’s just 3 minutes long and communicates in a very compelling way why we must engage older adults in the life of the church. So watch, be inspired and then go do something!

Got any “Ted’s” in your church? How can we do a better job mobilizing them for ministry?

    That was great Amy. I have been meaning to get in touch with you. I started volunteering at Oliver Woods, an assisted living and memory unity facility last Spring. I can not tell you what this has done for my life. I have laughed, sang, danced, done exercises, and yes prayed with the residents. I have been more blessed than I ever imagined. I am leaving for Amsterdam tomorrow night for 7 weeks so I went to tell my friends at the facility goodbye. I had prayer with three of them. One of the ladies is so frail but she had the biggest smile on her face as I prayed. God is good! There are facilities all over the United States and if some of the younger older want to find a place to serve, I know the opportunity is there. You are in my prayers. I try to follow what you are doing. God bless you and your family. Janice
