With a population of growing older adults in church, the EiC’s priority is to contribute to life transition changes for adults aged 50 and above. Encouragers are learning to accept that their decades of being in employment will come to a stop. Parents caring for their children till they continued into tertiary education will face empty nests. God desires that through their transition, Encouragers to seek after Him with the purpose of proclaiming God’s righteousness and faithfulness in their lives.
Encouragers are called into three areas in their life transitions:
Lordship: Instead of retiring from serving the Lord, it’s the Lord who reorientates their worldview of God in their new season. They grow from “Who is God?” to “Who is my Master in life?” (Luke 9:23-26; Phi 1:21)
Life: Instead of lamenting about deteriorating health, they see aging as an opportunity to depend more on God’s grace and the love of others, as they trust Him to deal with disappointments and losses in life! (2 Cor 4:16; 2 Tim 4:7)
Legacy: Instead of growing spiritually cold, they can be Titus 1 and 2 men and women, teachers of good things. (Ps 92: 12-15; 2 Tim 2:2)
EiC advances Covenant’s mission through a 3-2-1 annual discipleship rhythm as means to grow their spiritual disciplines and engage in outreach. There are 3 runs of Day with Jesus, 2 Connect events and 1 Spiritual Retreat annually.
