Recently, a new outbreak of the pandemic has hit our lives again, bringing many churches' offline ministries to a halt. The scheduled course study had to be canceled due to the pandemic. I had to cancel my scheduled work visit too.
A young pastor encountered many problems in the ministry, which he overcome relying on God.
When there is a financial problem, a pastor may continue to serve the church with stress, choose to work part-time, or leave his or her ministry. Little do full-time church workers talk about personal incomes as the topic seems ungodly.
I recently often hear many church staff put forward suggestions on reform, and they even set a reforming framework because the original church operation mode is no longer suitable for present challenges.Here I offer four reform suggestions for the church in the post-pandemic era.
Rural churches are now facing many challenges - the lack of preachers, the aging of believers, and the young pastors who much prefer serving in cities to working in the countryside. In addition to the current era’s influence of development on the church, people's mentality is no longer what it used to be.
As the Chinese New Year is coming, rural migrant workers have returned home one after another. For some people, the busyness of the year may only rest during the holidays. The lives of migrant workers are not comfortable. Of course, it's not easy in all walks of life, mainly because there is no diploma. They can only rely on hard work to earn money to support their families. They are worth our attention.
