In this ministry strategy session for congregations, I discuss the importance of differentiating between RE-OPENING, RE-LAUNCHING, and RE-IMAGINING your ministry in response to the pandemic.
Covid19 has rapidly accelerated existing digital and cultural trends. We’ve probably seen 5 to 10 year's worth of change over the last six months.
It's hard enough for congregations to keep up with changing culture and technology. This pandemic has launched us, essentially, into the future!
That's right, friends. You're doing 2030 ministry. It just happens to still be 2020.
What does this mean for your congregation?
Your congregation's health, impact, and sustainability requires that you understand our present context, learn new skills, and adapt. And fast.
To do this, it is important to differentiate between reopening, relaunching, and REIMAGINING your ministry.
No matter how strong the forces are pulling you to reopen and relaunch, we have to make space for the deep and creative work of reimagining.
