The pandemic has given us many reasons to stress and contemplate the future. Today, Dr. Thom Rainer and Mark Clifton discuss the other side of the coin and give us five reasons pastors should have hope as we look to the post-pandemic era. 

  • It is still Christ’s church
  • Your community is likely to know you better after the pandemic due to the live-streaming exposure
  • Prayer ministries grew during the pandemic
  • The community likely recognizes more today the importance of the local church
  • God sustained you and the Church during the pandemic, and He is not going away
