A Retirement Reformation Weekend Event

The Retirement Reformation Weekend is designed to expand the Church’s ministry to Seniors (55 and older).

Demonstrate to Seniors that the Church cares for them beyond their financial contributions.

Reduce the number of seniors leaving the church and attract more members to it.

Establish a base for senior growth and integration into other programmatic areas of the church.

Firm the financial base of the church’s ministry (typically 40 plus percent of your budget comes from members 60 and over)

Reach out to seniors in your community bringing them into the RR dynamic and showing them that your church cares and values them.
