The Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Church of God Engage has been released and is available digitally at www.cogengage.org.
The journal for ministers, church and lay leaders, offers a variety of articles for those working in ministry on a regular basis. Different than Church of God Evangel, Engage offers practical ministry ideas and resources, as well as items for the local church to implement. In addition, advertisements throughout the publication are provided by the departments and ministries of the Church of God.
This issue continues the series, “Let’s Talk About It,” by General Overseer Tim Hill where he addresses the topic of Honorary Doctorates. The Doctrine and Polity papers, a series of articles that address some of the Church of God’s core values, continues in this issue with an analysis on speaking in tongues, written by Dr. John Lombard.
Special features include an article by Jessica Berry on her experience with children and the “supernatural kid’s camp.” National Evangelist Jacqui Smith shares her testimony about generational ministry and her unique perspective as a single, African-American female in the church, while Pastor Steve Hall concludes his two-part series on pastoring with a look at the challenges of a minister’s wife.
Other articles are from well-known Evangelical writers, such as Doug Weiss and J. Lee Grady. Regular columns include Legal Notes and Financial Matters that appeal to the minister and local church. There is a recurring section which looks back at the last four months of Church of God happenings as reported on Faith News Network and a section on book reviews.
Published three times a year, Engage is emailed directly to ministers, pastors, staff and leaders in the Church of God. It is then made available to anyone simply through logging into the website www.cogengage.org. On the site, the publication may be downloaded for print, or viewed in a convenient two-page spread. Any website listed within the publication is a live link.
There are also archived copies of the publication going back several years.
