Emerging from COVID-19 as Healthy, Vital Churches ©

As we continue to engage in effective ministry during and after COVID-19, Bishop Lowry and the Cabinet are convinced that churches hoping to return to “the way things were” are not going to emerge from this season as healthy as those who are willing to embrace a “new day” for their church. In his most recent video message to the conference, Bishop Lowry shares his thoughts on several elements that he believes to be vital for churches to emerge from this season as healthy and vibrant communities of faith – including prayer as a first response, resisting the “Back to Egypt” desire to return to the past, embracing the new tech of today, pastors becoming Circuit Riders again and going smaller in order to grow bigger.
