Retiring Boomers a Boon for Congregations

By Ted Resnikoff



Watch Out Millenials 'cause Here Come the Boomers

Carol Howard Merritt asks how an increase of Boomer Generation retirees can and will change congregations on the Christian Century blog. Her key findings:

More people will be on a fixed income: giving will change. | More people will volunteer: congregations will develop new and more flexible ways to "pitch-in". | Multigenerational governance will become more prevalent: matching schedules of the employed, retired, students and others will become a priority.
