Older Adult Ministry
The lengthening of the average human lifespan is one of the remarkable achievements of the 20th century. In 1900, life expectancy was only 47, but over those 100 years, it rose to 75 for men and 78 for women. The percentage of older persons in our global society is growing and expected to nearly double between 1990 and 2030. Like never before in our history, older adults possess the capacity to impart wisdom, expertise and knowledge in the way we perceive and do church.
Hanover Presbyterian works with the Presbytery of Scioto Valley and the Presbyterian Older Adult Ministry Network to face new challenges and ever changing needs, collaborate with other religious and secular ministries, and advocate on behalf of society’s older adults.
