520    This project will research the need for developing a 
       worship ministry strategically designed to meet the 
       cultural, spiritual, musical, and emotional demands of 
       early senior adults, those born from 1945 to 1955. This 
       will involve identifying need, developing strategy, and 
       designing programming specific for the senior adult 
       worship experience. The research question is, " How can 
       the evangelical church meet the worship needs of her 
       members born from 1945 to 1955?" 
520    The basic observation is that the baby-boomer generation 
       is moving into the senior adult age group. Their concept 
       of worship is identified with musical preferences, 
       preaching style, and regional demographic. They 
       communicate through expressions of worship more identified
       with their own life experiences: (a) Rock-n-roll 
       associated with the music style of the Beatles, the 
       Rolling Stones, the Temptations, the Supremes, the Mommas 
       and the Papas, Three Dog Night, and Chicago. While they 
       have accepted and even embraced the modern contemporary 
       rock-style music in their worship experience, they still 
       have a yearning and a hunger in their hearts for the 
       worship music of their younger days; (b) Meaningful non-
       music worship experiences such as Bible study, fellowship 
       groups, discipleship training, and accountability 
       ministries; (c) Worship expressions that are biblical and 
       intellectually stimulating; (d) A worship environment that
       is highly relational in its orientation; and, (e) A 
       worship experience that will transform the heart of the 55
       to 65 year old believer, hence proving that which is the 
       "perfect and acceptable will of God." 
520    This thesis title will be "Developing a Strategy of 
       Worship for Evangelical Believers born from 1945 to 1955."
