Where will tomorrow’s chaplains come from?

According to FACT (Faith Communities Today), church pews are thinning out and graying.  A survey of more than 11,000 randomly selected congregations of all faith traditions showed that, between 2000 and 2010,”the average percentage of participants over 65 has increased at the same time as the average percentage of 18-34 year olds has declined.”  Can’t help but wonder what effect this will have on the future ranks of military chaplains.
