It’s Monday Again

Port Maitland (Barry Vernon) celebrated four baptisms yesterday in a local lake. Barry shared, “We are praising God that even with Covid-19 we are still moving forward!”

Brent Ingersoll (Kings) featured Dr. HC in his 34th “Speaking of:” Podcast this weekend. A great conversation with two impactful leaders. An excellent podcast worthy of subscription with weekly insights to inform and challenge your spiritual growth and leadership.Dr. HC also preached yesterday to a “pandemic-packed” Beulah Tabernacle to wrap up the summer season at Beulah Camp & Conference Center.

Hats off to Summer Weekends @ Beulah Coordinator, Jeffrey Doucette, for his excellent leadership and adaptation this year. The long-weekend was packed with a variety of events and activities including a night of music that featured rap (One8Tea – Teah Bailey), gospel (Walter & Margo Perry), Gloryland Way, and Japanese worship (Robin & Yoko White).
Dr. David Higle (Director of Clergy Care & Development) provided an in-depth overview of PastorWell this week with myself and Atlantic District Clergy Care Coordinator, Dr. Allen Lee (Kingswood University). Our denominational partnership with this excellent resource for clergy care will be unpacked in more detail at DS Dialog days offered in lieu of a ministerial at strategic locations around the district in January. We are incredibly blessed to have such effective leadership in the Division of Education & Clergy Development (Russ Gunsalus).
Jon Wiest (Groundswell) continued his work with district leadership this week in preparation for Phase Two of our 2025 Values-Driven Vision. Full details for local churches to engage will be rolled out during the DS Dialogs in January.
It is a source of great encouragement and wisdom for me to meet monthly with an assigned group of District Superintendents from the northeast region of the North American General Conference. Our conversations this week included best practices and problem solving for serving local church leaders for multiplication and discipleship during this pandemic season.
Points to Ponder from Myron Pierce (Exponential)
  • Leaders pivot from re-opening to re-entering, from capacity to commission, from institution to innovation, from fear to forward, from church-maintenance to culture-making. If you don’t improvise you will fossilize.
  • Who we impact is more important than who comes to listen. Church is not a place you go to, it’s a family you belong to. Impact is the 21st Century apologetic.
  • It’s a leadership violation to create a vision in a vacuum. Myron Pierce

Tee-off begins at 1:00 p.m.

A trophy will be given to the church with the most teams and raising the most funds!

Zach Coffin, Director of Next Gen Multiplication & Discipleship, is offering several cohorts for shared learning and support beginning in September in the areas of youth, children, and pastor-care ministry.

What if COVID-19 is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for leaders to think more strategically
about doing church?
