"A Christian never retires from devotedly following Jesus, serving Him, and making disciples who keep His mission as their objective. Finishing Well Ministries aims to press that agenda with an older generation. The church does not pay nearly enough attention to nurturing, encouraging, and developing older people to stay on the cutting edge of their own personal growth and to keep giving themselves to strengthen the Body of Christ. In a typical church where they are 4 generations, the last generation gets the least attention. That need is the mission of FWM. ." - Hal Habecker
