Phasing Into New Normal: A Guide for Churches

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, it has become even more apparent to Assemblies of God leaders that our ministries must adapt to remain effective and healthy in an uncharted, post-corona world.

Congregants and staff members will return to their churches with new financial, emotional, and spiritual needs. The health and wellbeing of our communities will also have shifted considerably, requiring new forms of outreach and assistance. To address these changes and maintain strength and endurance in an unfamiliar environment, our leadership teams will need to modify established habits and practices.

CEP friend and board member, Superintendent Gene Roncone — alongside other gifted colleagues of the Rocky Mountain Ministry Network — has created a guide to help churches prepare for this new season of ministry, what he refers to as the “new normal.”

This resource will help you…

  • Anticipate the future needs of your congregation
  • Gradually relaunch core ministries
  • Identify new areas for community involvement
  • Equip your ministry staff for a “new normal”
  • Evaluate and adapt your church budget
  • And more!

Additionally, each of the four phases outlined begins with prayer initiatives and an opportunity to assess your own mental, emotional, and spiritual health, to ensure your ability to lead well through transition and change.
