by Rev. Louise Johnson, Director for Leadership Development – LEAD
COVID-19 forced church leaders to respond to a global crisis in the blink of an eye. In a moment with little information and much uncertainty, churches reinvented nearly every aspect of church. This moment has ignited imagination, created collaborations, launched experiments, and dreamed of new possibilities as the heroic efforts of leaders continue to lead ministry. The response to these challenges has been great, but there comes a time when responding is no longer sufficient.
If the church is going to live into a new reality,
it will need to pivot.
The new Pivot Podcast invites church leaders to use the disruptive moment of COVID-19 to reimagine how they think about church, ministry, and leadership.
Each week three veteran church leaders wrestle with making spiritual sense of this time, name how the Christian faith is a resource for navigating this moment in history, offer ideas on how church leaders can pivot toward the emerging future, and suggest practices for engaging others in this work.
