Aging: The Final Frontier is a one-day conference about Aging.

It attempts to bring together a wide spectrum of concerns from looking at one’s own aging, the church’s roles in looking after the elderly, to perspectives and models in ministering to the elderly. Ultimately, we are looking at discipleship in Christ and the goal is spiritual maturity. The Keynote Speaker is Dr. Paul T. P. Wong and he will be talking about Spirituality and Successful Aging.

The workshops cover 6 different tracks:

i. Disruptions: Dementia and Disability;

ii. Care for the Caregivers;

iii. Re-framing Aging;

iv. Ministering and the Aging;

v. Outreach: Local;

vi. Outreach: Glocal (Global / Local).

The conference is open to anyone who is interested in issues surrounding aging, whether their own or that of others around them. Health care workers, pastors, chaplains and family caregivers may be particularly interested.
