The year 2020 was said to be the year of 20/20 vision. We anticipated it being a year full of new exploits that would catapult us to a new dimension in ministry. In our view, the new year was not expected to be an “ordinary” year, and indeed it was not.
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic came and completely altered our way of living and doing ministry. We were forced to have an adaptable mindset that would allow our ministries to survive and still be effective in the wake and aftermath of the pandemic. It challenged us to be creative and innovative in our mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Indeed, COVID-19 was the corrective lens needed to have 20/20 vision in a world that would never be the same.
For literature evangelists, the pandemic presented a new obstacle that they would have to overcome. Door-to-door initiatives were discouraged to avoid the spread of the virus, and there was little movement happening at the onset of the pandemic. However, today, the movement continues.
The South Central Conference’s Publishing Department is gearing up for their Literature Evangelism Summer Campaign, under the leadership of their new director, Pastor Dimitri Scavella. The campaign will be held in Nashville, Tennessee from May 16 to August 1. Our theme for this summer is “The Night is Coming,” based on John 9:4 which says, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
Young men and women will be engaged in door-to-door ministry, spreading the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ and raising substantial funds for their school’s tuition. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
COVID-19 has shown us that the window of opportunity to do ministry as we know it, is closing. The night is coming!
