Online - Discipling People for Fruitful Retirement
God grows people in retirement, working in and through them. But we don’t always see it that way.

If you’re in any kind of leadership at church, join LICC’s Church Team to learn how to equip the retirees in your church or group for whole-life mission.

From our ongoing research, we know people in retirement find themselves asking big questions about their identity, their relationships, and their purpose. Lots of Christians in the final years of working life have a large sphere of influence and a clear purpose in their work – whether it’s making useful products, serving others, or running a business. When they retire, it can be easy to feel they’ve lost their field of ministry. And as a result, many church and ministry leaders tell us people in this season of life often find it difficult to recognise that they can make a genuine difference in their new daily contexts.
