In this part two episode of the Four Seasons of Life and Ministry, we are continuing our discussion on what these seasons mean for you and your church. To illustrate the concept of the seasons of God, we have correlated them to the four seasons we are all familiar with: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. In this episode, we are discussing the Fall and Winter seasons and how they correlate to the seasons of ministry.
The first step in understanding these two seasons in ministry is by unpacking how they work. Beginning with the Fall season, what can you expect for your ministry? What does this season bring with it and how can you respond effectively? This is a season of evaluation and reflection. What does this mean for your specific church context? Lastly, there is winter, where you will begin to need some more encouragement and steadfastness. What do these two seasons consist of, how does God work through them, and what do they mean for you?
The second step in this process of flowing with the seasons of ministry is to understand the importance and implications of each season. When you know how to identify these two seasons and open your heart to what the Lord wants to do, these seasons will help you grow. In each season, there is room for success, but there is also room for missed opportunity. We want to help you maximize these seasons that you will inevitably encounter in your church and ministry.
