- Publisher Without a doubt, both society and church congregations are "graying." Life expectancy in the U.S. has increased from 47 years in 1900 to 77 years in 2000. The number of people age 65 years or older is expected to double in the next 25 years. The Graying of the Church is based on extensive research which indicates that leaders of older adult ministries want help in identifying new ministry models, ways to motivate older adults, and general resource information. All of these areas (and more!) are addressed by Gentzler in a very readable way. Gentzler's work addresses church leaders who plan and provide ministry with older adults; clergy; parish nurses; Christian educators; Stephen ministers; nurture, health, & welfare teams/committees; evangelism teams/committees.
