After You Retire, Redeploy in Missions (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Mar 14, 2023

As retirement approached, Dick Senzig and his wife, Sue, began to consider what was next for them—specifically what would they be retiring to? They wanted their retirement years to have purpose. Long-interested in missions, they decided to take the Perspectives on world missions course that their church, Park Cities Presbyterian, in Dallas, Texas, was offering. It radically changed their whole viewpoint. They recognized that they had gifts and experience that they could use firsthand in working with people overseas in a business capacity. They talked with their church missions director and God opened the door for them to serve with MTW’s Workplace Ministries in West Africa. 

“What I like to tell people who are approaching retirement is, ‘Don't retire, redeploy,’ Dick says. “Redeployment happens with an army when it's done fighting on one front and it moves to another front. All those gifts, all those experiences that God has given you and that you've used so well in the business world for many years, now take that, dedicate it and use it to the service of advancing the kingdom of Christ in places that you never dreamed of where there's so much need, so much opportunity.”
