The growth in population of midlife and mature adults is challenging local churches with the unique opportunity to reach out and minister to and through older adults.
In 2030, the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Conference of The United Methodist Church will be home to 600,000+ adults over the age of 65. This is an increase of 24 percent from today's population.
Through your financial support, ENCORE Ministry is expanding older adult ministry throughout the conference and creating opportunities for spiritual fellowship. In addition to supporting the spiritual life of older adults in the TWK Conference, ENCORE Ministry maintains a focus on these areas of concern: nutrition, transportation, healthcare, affordable housing, and church building accessibility.
