Never before in history have so many adults moved into their later years of life with so much health and vitality.  Pew Research Center reports that 10,000 adults are turning 65 each day and that in less then 15 years, almost 20% of our population will be over the age of 65. This unprecedented growth of the older adult population creates great opportunities for ministry.  How do we best respond?

“Over twenty-five years ago, God began stirring in me a desire to help older adults live out their lives with meaning and purpose.  I believed then what I believe with even more fervor today:   everyone is valuable to God and we can all make our lives count for eternity.  This is why I am thrilled that the International Pentecostal Holiness Church is committed to inspiring, equipping, and supporting ALL generations as we seek to glorify Christ, including those in the “second half of life”. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside you as we together unleash the potential of every generation!” – Dr. Amy Hanson
