Illinois Ministries, Indiana Ministries, Ohio Ministries, and Western Pennsylvania Ministries are jointly sponsoring a series of 90-minute webinars titled, “Navigating Life, Ministry and COVID.” These are designed to be a source of information and encouragement for pastors. The format will include a guest speaker(s) addressing a topic of significant interest to pastors, followed by breakout room sessions for facilitating interaction and processing the content. The four state ministries are providing a scholarship for the Church of God ministers and pastoral staffs in their states, so there is no cost to participate. We only ask that you register to help us manage breakout room sessions and to ensure you receive the link to participate. If the date of a webinar does not fit your schedule, we invite you to still register as all registrants will receive a link to the recording following the event.
The final webinar in the series is scheduled for April 22nd from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST focusing on the “Leading the Church of 300 or Smaller to a New Future.”
