CMA (Christian Ministry Advancement) is launching a new initiative called Q4Connection. The purpose of Q4, which stands for the fourth quarter, is to equip Australian Christians to impact their world for God’s kingdom in the next phase of life.
Average life expectancy for Australians is currently 81 for men and 85 for women. This means that women begin their fourth quarter at about 65 and men at about 60. The ABS tells us that 800 Australian Baby Boomers retire every day, about 15% of whom are Christian. This a huge potential kingdom of God workforce. While recreation and enjoyment will be part of any retirement the Bible says that for those of us who seek to follow Jesus there is more.
