Pastor, you are tired.
You are discouraged.
You are frustrated.
You are lost.
You are worried.
You are awake at night.
These are stressful times for a church leader. One group of people in your congregation wants you to do one thing, another group wants you to do another, still another has no suggestions but thinks you are wrong regardless.
“You didn’t resume services fast enough.” You resumed services too fast.” ”Why isn’t the Children’s church open?” “Why is the Children’s Church open?” On and on again and again.
But here’s the encouragement: The church is moving forward. Maybe the models of church had grown a little stale for the culture we are called to reach for Jesus. (Hint, yes.)
I don’t think anyone has the answer of what “church” will look like when we see the other side of this global pandemic. But, I do know one thing: God does!
Take that encouragement this week. Man has no idea whether or not you will ever see “100%” attendance as normal again. But Covid has forced us to go out and use other methods for ministry. Social media, video based content, a comprehensive digital strategy – it is all things you are probably working on and developing.
Pastor, in the Midst of Pandemic find Encouragement in the future Jesus has planned for his church!
