Abundant New Middle Age Ministry Communique

This Communique has core information to communicate with Pastors, Elders, Fellowship Leaders, or Christian at-large to help them understand the vision, goal, and work of NMA Ministry and to support/collaborate with church’s ministries.


Background of the New Middle-Age Ministry


• The ‘New Middle-Age’ term here refers to the cohort between 55-75 years old or in short 55+


• In 2016, God led a group of Chinese Christians and pastors to see the growing number of retirees and pre-retirees among the churches’ Cantonese-speaking congregations. They have a burden to engage them to rethink retirement from a typical ‘North America Retirement Dream’ of golf and cruises to a much bigger, better, everlasting ‘God’s Kingdom Retirement Dream’, that is, actively investing our lives in God’s Kingdom work in their ‘Golden Years’ life and also living a healthy, active, and significant life. Hence, the NMA Committee was formed to champion and promote this initiative


• Concurrently, the NMA vision is also echoed by: Rev. Gerald Chan in his DMin. Thesis ‘The Tribe of Caleb’ re: the Cantonese Christians retirees, by Rev. James Leung in his workshops given in Toronto/Montreal/Van, and also Rev. Warren Lai in his former Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church among the retirees/senior groups etc. 



Unique characteristics of the Chinese Christians NMA Group


• This group has obtained more education, stable/better employment in government, hi-tech, or private sector and have a healthy sustainable retirement income


• Accumulated a wealth of life’s resources (knowledge, skills, experience, finance, network, spiritual journey)


• Need a clear focus in retirement that is God’s mission-oriented, intentional, meaningful, and productive 


• Those transitioning to retirement or early retirement (If God permits, we) still have 20+ years of healthy and productive life



Goal of the NMA Ministry


To motivate and mobilize the churches’ Cantonese-speaking retirees/pre-retirees to have a mission-minded focus engaging and equipping in God’s Kingdom work to serve Christ’s church, the community, and God’s global missions.

楓盛新中年事工“徽標” 含義

這徽標融合了“新”與“舊” ——而主耶穌基督正是我們新中年的核心!徽標的「中」字用傳統字體展示出“舊”的優雅,旁邊的楓葉輪廓代表著加拿大,而輪廓的不同深淺金秋色正代表著我們服侍不同年紀、嶄新的“金齡”新中年世代。


Meaning of our Ministry logo


This logo blends "new" and "old" --- and the Lord Jesus Christ is the center of our new middle age! The word "中" in the logo uses traditional font to show the elegance of the "old", the maple leaf outline next to it represents Canada, and the different shades of golden autumn color in the maple leaf outline represent the new "golden” new middle age generation we serve.
