Ministries by older adults include mentoring, leadership, offering spiritual legacies to younger church members, and participating in what Gentzler describes as the \"SAGE Corps\"- Spirituality Active Generative Elders. Another initiative, S.E.N.I.O.R.S., is a ministry that covers needs from spirituality to nutrition./ So that church program aims true to the need and talent, Gentzler includes a number os assessment tools which encourage elders and pastors to find the best fit for their congregation.
In addition to the practical issues of programming, Gentzler takes on more difficult topics including chronic conditions, depression and death. He also recommends that churches pay special attention to the needs of the Boomer generation, since they are now becoming the older adults who will determine the church\'s path for years to come.
