Watch Out Millenials ’cause Here Come the Boomers

FoF_Retiring_BoomersCarol Howard Merritt asks how an increase of Boomer Generation retirees can and will change congregations on the Christian Century blog. Her key findings:

More people will be on a fixed income: giving will change. | More people will volunteer: congregations will develop new and more flexible ways to “pitch-in”. | Multigenerational governance will become more prevalent: matching schedules of the employed, retired, students and others will become a priority.
