Faithful Aging Conference
Posted on February 16, 2017
Faithful Aging will be the first statewide, faith-based conference on aging addressing opportunities related to an aging congregation and meeting the needs of older members, including those with dementia, inside and outside the walls of our faith communities. Presented by the Beard Center on Aging at Lynchburg College and Virginia United Methodist Homes, Inc. (VUMH), this conference developed following listening sessions across the Virginia Conference to hear directly from clergy and laity about the needs of older adults in their congregations and communities. The Virginia Conference Older Adult Council is a Gold Sponsor for the event. A .5 CEU has been approved for Virginia Conference clergy and certified professionals as well as five hours of credit toward recertification for Lay Servants.
