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 third webinar in the series is scheduled for March 25th from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST focusing on the “Pre-COVID to Post-COVID Paradigm Shift. COVID has changed a lot of things in our world and in the local church. What will this change and what does the paradigm shift look like for local churches and pastors? Dave will share what he is sensing, hearing, and seeing about the local church and its mission as we look to summer/fall 2021 and beyond? Other topics that will be addressed:
- What are the emerging trends for the church post-COVID? How will doing church, outreach & ministry be different post-COVID? How will it stay the same?
- How do we stay on mission as a local church when so many people are just trying to cope with day-to-day stresses imposed by COVID?
- How does a pastor plan in the midst of this season of unknowns?
- Some are saying that digital will now be the front door to each local church. What does that mean and what does that look like for a local church? How will this shift impact local churches?
- What will church planting look like post-COVID?
