ASSEMBLY 2021 COVID: One Year in and a Way Forward

 

     The SKMB Director of Ministry (DM), Phil Gunther, provided a wake-up and rally call to churches and camps regarding post-pandemic life.

“God’s word teaches us that there is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the sun.  Friends, the season of pandemic is on its last legs, infected numbers are decreasing, hospitalizations are decreasing, deaths are decreasing and the timeframe to receive vaccinations is decreasing.  The window of hope and optimism is opening wider by the day.  Yes, we have some battles that remain, with COVID and with fully re-opening churches.  Here we must remain patient, all the while preparing for a new season, a post-Covid season.  Our pandemic ‘winter’ is ending, our post-pandemic spring is unfolding, and God is calling us out of darkness to the light.  He is calling us to Himself.  He is calling us to mission.  He is calling us to advance the Gospel.  He is calling us from a period of self-preservation to a renewed passion for gospel proclamation.   It is a time of opportunity led by His Spirit, and here is victory.  God sees us as more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.  Friends, put on the armour of God and go forward as victors!  This is our hope – the future is in the Father’s hands and He is sovereign.  SKMB family, we will rebuild what was torn down, restore what was lost and revive what was cast down.  Let us together re-commit to re-engage in the great command and great commission.  Ours is the victory!  Ours is the hope!  Ours is the joy!”

    Gunther went on to call lay and vocational leaders to help the church understand the present culture and need, to redefine the mission for a post-pandemic world, to re-set passion for advancing the Gospel.  He called leaders to ask mission-defining questions for a world so different than what it was even a year ago.  Finally, he shared his own roadmap to strategic leadership in 2021.
