.About ALOA: Our nation is aging. The “graying of America” is a reality in all areas of life, the result of three persistent trends: we are living longer; there are fewer births; and “the boomer generation” will swell the ranks of seniors by 76 million over the next 25 years. ALOA was formed in the early 1990’s by a group of LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod) and ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) church leaders to help prepare the church for “the age wave.” ALOA’s focus was and continues to be:
To help congregations strengthen their ministry with and for older adults; and
To encourage older adults to affirm their gifts and use those gifts in service to family, church, community and the world.
