I’m pleased to have been asked to share in this webinar. It is important for churches, Christian ministries and others in the fitness industry to find ways to support the growing 50+ population AND engage them through fitness ministry to accomplish their God-given purpose to lead future generations. We've got it all wrong when we relegate the older members of our churches to yesterday's history. They should be one of the most dynamic components of the church. In my 15-minute segment I’ll help you discover the impact that cross-generational fitness ministry can have in your community.
