What’s your plan, pastor?

As some of the COVID restrictions fall away, what’s your plan for ministering to your flock? Have you learned some things about ministry over the past year? Have you been reminded of important things you had been overlooking?

Did you have a sudden realization that there are aged, infirm, and other homebound people among your flock? Did you notice that the usual methods of communication weren’t reaching all of your people?

Perhaps you received a wake-up call. Maybe some problem was amplified in a way that you finally had to deal with it—or at least recognize its existence.

What’s your plan, pastor?

Will you fall into your old habits? If those are good spiritual practices, that’s great! But will you find new ways (or renew the older ways) of staying in touch with the people of your congregation? Will you reach out to those who are alone and can’t attend your services?

Are you ready to pastor a congregation with fewer people, giving fewer dollars, attending fewer activities? Are you ready to engage in Biblical preaching, sound teaching, and meaningful pastoral care in a greater degree than ever before?

What will be different in a good way? What will be different that will be hard to accept?
