God is truly moving in the Church of God. From the local church, to the state and regional assemblies, to the offices of Church of God Ministries, real change is taking place to position the movement for maximum kingdom impact. Baptisteries are getting wet again. Altars are filling up again. Churches are making more and better disciples. Walls that recently separated saints from one another are crumbling. As ministries coalesce around our common subject, Jesus, we’re reclaiming what hell has stolen. Many of our state and regional assemblies are seeing renewed unity and fresh missional fervor thanks in part to what are being called revitalization “boot camps.” These opportunities, offered by Church of God Ministries, and led by Handel Smith and the domestic ministry team, are now open to any district, state, or regional assembly that longs to see revitalization.

The church used to do it. Government stepped in, however, where the church left off. In the past fifty years—at least—churches became more and more inward-focused, sheltering themselves from a “contaminated” world. But it didn’t used to be that way.

Several Church of God families and their congregations have discovered one avenue consistently taking things in a different direction. They’ve partnered with Safe Families for Children to care for children from homes caught in the midst of crisis. A redemptive solution to the need for foster care, Safe Families is now being offered as an effective resource for the Church of God movement through Be Bold Academy. Continue reading

Wouldn’t it be nice if all the ministry resources you need could be accessed through a single online portal? Whether curriculum, discipleship books, supplemental teaching material, training guides for counseling, youth ministry tools, or personal access to coaching experiences, a revolutionary resource portal will offer these, and much, much more. Since 1881, the Church of God has not seen a discipleship tool of such magnitude. Church of God Ministries is pleased to present Be Bold Academy—not a school, but a door of possibilities for spiritual growth through which all Church of God pastors and lay leaders will have the opportunity to walk. This June, during Church of God Convention in Oklahoma City, this value-added smorgasbord of ministry resources will be fully unveiled. Continue reading
