North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) received both regional and international attention in 2017.
The ministry received the 2017 Outstanding Community Service Award for North Carolina from the Southeastern Association of Area Agencies on Aging. This award recognizes an agency that has made positive contributions in the lives of older people.
In June, NCBAM’s director, Dr. Sandy Gregory, spoke at the 7th International Conference on Aging and Spirituality in Chicago. NCBAM also added new titles to the workshops it offers to churches and senior centers –– now offering more than 40 enrichment workshops that
address issues relevant to aging adults.
