“Get plugged in” is a phrase used by assorted pastoral staff to encourage church involvement. The youth pastor especially desires for you to get plugged in. He is the most frequent user of this phrase. Close behind him in rate of saying “get plugged in” are small-group leaders, singles pastors, the young adults leader, and the director of the parking ministry. (The parking ministry is a special phenomenon exclusive to very large churches and will be discussed further in a future post.)

The phrase “getting plugged in” is not used in relation to the senior adults ministry. It does not appeal to their demographic.
