Third Third and the Church: Expansive Vision and Practical Tools

April 3, 2023



The Bible promises that those who are righteous will flourish. “They will bear fruit even when old and gray; they will remain lush and fresh” (Psalm 92:14, CEB). People in the third third of life have the potential to live fully, fruitfully, and faithfully.

Churches have the unique opportunity to help their third third congregants flourish. At times, churches have faithfully taken advantage of this opportunity. But often churches have come up short in the matter of making fruitful disciples of their older adult members.

As the De Pree Center has advanced our Flourishing in the Third Third of Life Initiative, we have heard from dozens of pastors and congregational leaders who are eager for their churches to serve their third third adults well. They are looking for new vision and practical tools. We are glad to supply what they desire with diverse resources based on Scripture and enhanced by scientific knowledge and down-to-earth experience of church ministry.

This webinar will offer biblical wisdom and practical expertise for people who want their church to excel in third third work. Our conversation will be relevant to pastors, congregational leaders, and older adult members who are eager to help their churches think and act in new ways. We believe that third thirders constitute one of the greatest untapped resources in churches today. We want to help unleash this potential so as to make a difference for God’s kingdom in the world.
