Ministry Now: church reopenings with Chris Osborne

It’s a question you’ve never had to answer before, because it’s a problem we’ve never had to face before.

Last week on Ministry Now, we sat down with Chris Osborne, professor of preaching and pastoral ministry, to discuss reopening churches in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the many concerns that come with it.

Ministry Now is a resource from Southwestern Seminary, helping you live your calling in an ever-changing ministry landscape. Episodes air at 10am CT on Facebook and YouTube Premiere.

This week, we'll be talking with Dr. Rebekah Naylor about medical ministry and meeting human needs in our communities.

Gospel ‘scatters’ even in time of pandemic ‘shelter,’ panelists agree

A pandemic poses unique challenges to evangelism, but it can also be a means to bring about an awakening in Christ, panelists agreed during a May 14 conference on “Evangelism Engagement” hosted by The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s Center for Church Revitalization.

The online conference brought together pastors and other ministers to explore a fresh approach to evangelism, outreach, and Gospel invitations in the midst of social distancing due to COVID-19. The panelists included Adam W. Greenway, president of Southwestern Seminary; Matt Queen, L.R. Scarborough Chair of Evangelism; and Kenneth Priest, interim director of the Center for Church Revitalization, who also served as the conference’s moderator.
