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 first webinar will be January 28th from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST focusing on the heart of the leader. COVID-19 hijacked a lot of hearts, lives, and ministries during 2020. Pastors have been wrestling with significant issues, such as. . .
- grieving the losses of what cannot return and the relationships that may never look the same,
- functional depression that drains us of energy and makes us feel like quitting, and
- the undercurrent of stress showing up as nagging anxiety, dread, unhealthy coping, or withdrawing from our spouses.
Dr. Charity Byers and Dr. John Walker of Blessing Ranch (https://www.blessingranch.org/index.cfm) will be our speakers. Their ministry focuses on providing counseling and training for pastors and Christian leaders. They co-authored a new book (Unhindered) that was just released in November 2020 and is about aligning your heart with the incredible, unhindered life that God has crafted specifically for you. Dr. Charity and Dr. John will help us process some of the struggles of 2020 from a perspective of the leader’s heart.
