In Chaplain Ministry, Church of God

Church of God Ministries wants to see the local church thrive. That’s why the Domestic Ministries Team is now offering rejuvenation boot camps to districts, states, and regions of the Church of God movement. Launched to help create a new trajectory for assemblies across North America, these boot camps have the potential to breathe new life into the local congregation. Would your region be interested in hosting a boot camp to learn how to better serve the needs of the community around you and make a kingdom impact? Slots are filling up for the remainder of 2017 and into 2018, so you’ll want to contact Church of God Ministries soon. And, there’s more.

“In addition to the limited slots, we now offer free access to six-month cluster groups that help lead pastors and their team implement the rejuvenation strategies,” Handel Smith, chief domestic officer explains. “Pastors and churches are seeing remarkable God-directed results. The message is clear and the methods are aligned. The training is practical and transformational.”

What region wouldn’t want to experience training that is both practical and transformational, and which has already proven helpful to churches and assemblies across North America? Handel Smith’s thirty-three years of ministry experience has brought him to a place where he speaks strategically and with wisdom when it comes to ministry revitalization. From being a minister at one of the fastest-growing churches on the East Coast, to experiencing firsthand every stage of a church’s life cycle—including rebirth—to his twenty-nine years sharpening business leadership skills as a senior leader for Verizon—Handel’s credentials for revitalization are matched only by his heart for seeing churches and church networks turn around.

Each boot camp experience is tailored for the specific needs of the district, state, or region. Church leaders are given the chance to choose one ministry system in their church to discuss and analyze. From that point, the boot camp becomes a practical, how-to course on improving ministry systems. Plus, Be Bold Academy’s treasure trove of ministry resources are made available to everyone who participates. What a deal!

“Our churches are learning how to meet the felt needs of their communities,” Handel concludes. “They’re loving God, connecting with and loving each other, and loving the community. Boot camp rejuvenation churches are learning to move people from the community to the core, from belonging to belief. We offer an opportunity for churches to get vital demographics and psychographics of the community they serve. This information helps them to be the true hands and feet of Jesus. We learn together how to make Jesus the subject in our churches and communities, leading like Jesus did.”
