Day 20 Gift Idea: Crescendo

CHICAGO, IL (December 20, 2018) – Throughout the Advent season, Covenant Newswire is highlighting daily gift selections from the CovenantCares giving guide. Through the free annual catalog, Covenanters can partner with brothers and sisters around the globe to give gift donations that will help serve communities and advance God’s work in many areas.

Today we highlight Crescendo, a ministry of Make and Deepen Disciples that focuses on equipping pastors, staff, and church leaders to unleash the potential of boomers and beyond to engage in the work of God’s kingdom. Coaches and resource specialists engage leaders in planning ministries that target these age groups.

Opportunities for ministry abound. Every day, 10,000 people turn 65. That trend began in 2011 and will continue through 2029.

The name Crescendo comes from the world of music. It is defined as a gradual increase and building to a strong culmination, reflecting the idea that God desires that all live fully into his purposes for the entirety of our lives. This concept is at the heart of the Crescendo initiative.

Your gift helps provide introductory seminars, on-site coaching, and practical print and online resources for local ministries. This and other missional gift-giving options are available now through CovenantCares Gifts for Mission. Please join us in advancing the mission.
