The escalating retirement rate of Baby Boomers could provide a boost to churches, according to the founder and director of the Center for Healthy Churches.
Bill Wilson says as Boomers retire, many of them will go from working at a job they felt they had to do, to having more time to give to the things they care deeply about.
He says for Christians, the focus of that energy will often be on the Church, as many are eager to get involved in impactful ministry in their retirement years.
He told Baptist News Global, this is a chance to offer Boomers a meaningful way to invest their time and money into ministry and Gospel mission.
Baby Boomers are those born between 1946 and 1964.
Pew Research has found a higher rate of Boomers are entering retirement this year than in previous years.
