Third Chapter

Third Chapter of Life Ministry

We are inviting all people in their Third Chapter of life:  men and women age 55 to 75 and beyond.  Come and experience a gathering of speakers, learning, stretching, conversation, challenge, growth — all focused around God’s calling, equipping, support, encouragement, identity.  Let’s get a conversation going and listen to where God leads.  This is an amazing generation.  What is God saying to us and what are we going to do about it?  This is about living out our best at work, around home, in our community and with friends.  Come and be a part of a huge movement!
