Engaging Our Aging conference

Watch this space as we fill in the details for our second annual Engaging Our Aging conference!

WHEN IS IT? Saturday, October 27, 2018. Times to be determined.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Anyone who is aging (or suspects he might be) – all are welcome; we especially encourage those ages 50 and up

  • Anyone caring for someone who is aging or suffering with a terminal/chronic illness

WHO'LL BE SPEAKING?
Our special speaker is Dr. John Mulder, MD, FAAHPM, HMDC. He's the chief medical consultant for  Faith Hospice of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the Trillium Institute — which advances the art and science of navigating how to live well, die well, and grieve well. Their calling is to develop innovative ways of caring for people with serious illnesses.

WHAT ARE THE TOPICS?

  1. Realities of the Medical System - How to negotiate your own "life-defining" illness and be an advocate for others
  2. Perspectives on Hope - Comparing a biblical understanding to popular thought and alternative worldviews
  3. Human Dignity - What can we do when someone in our realm is hurting? God's provision and presence is a model for ministry.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
To be determined, but most likely similar to last years' pricing: $30 for singles, $50 for married couples. $20 per person when you register 5 or more from one church. Includes lunch. You will be able to register through our online store. 

WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?
Calvary Baptist Church in Grand Rapids (Please do not contact the church for details about the conference.)
