Our mission is to foster the ongoing development of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ while connecting our Senior Adults with the ministry of FBC JAX. Involving the Senior Adult in gospel sharing and the application of scripture to matters of daily living are the ways we live out the purpose of God. This mission is based on the belief that there is no "retirement" from the responsibilities of the Christian's service, stewardship, or spiritual growth, regardless of limitations of aging and cultural challenges. We place priority on:
- Developing a personal relationship with Christ
- Reaching the lost
- Application of scripture to daily life
- Urgency of the times
- Preparation for the judgment seat of Christ
We support the Senior Adult with a comprehensive program that includes the 4 pillars of successful aging:
- Lifelong learning
- Spiritual growth
- Purposeful engagement
The Senior Adult Ministry at FBCJAX begins at age 71. We offer more than a dozen small group classes for couples, men only, and women only that meet weekly on Sunday mornings. Our program for Senior Adults is not based only on Sunday morning activities, but encourages daily interaction with God and learning and applying the word of God consistently to daily life situations in self and others through a life lived in community.
We invite you to join us to enjoy the fulfillment God promises when making Christ the center of your life.
Acts 20:24 "But, I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God."
