(USA)–Next, the ‘Boomer’ generation continues to influence the generations before and after. They are also the moving force of the Finisher’s Project. The Project’s Nelson Malwitz says for those in ‘middlescence’, there’s a whole new experience ahead. “At 50, we have a whole other adult life to go; we’re only halfway through our adult years and we have an opportunity to do what the Lord asked, and that is, to make disciples in all nations with our skills talents, and abilities that we’ve had in our earlier years.” Yet, Malwitz says there’s a breakdown in communication between the mission field to the church, and that’s where the Finisher Project comes in. “In that gap, we’re able to reach into America’s pews. We present this: here, people have an option to offer their bodies as a living sacrifice to the Lord in serving in some way-long-term, short-term, home and abroad. People of all ages are needed. Jesus didn’t say, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations if you’re under 35.'”
