Hill Releases New “Let’s Talk About It”

In the on-going series, “Let’s Talk About It,” Church of God General Overseer Timothy M. Hill has released his latest topic, “Leading in Crisis.”

In the article, posted on August 13 on Hill’s Facebook page, the general overseer discusses reflections gathered from a previous interview he took part in which was hosted by Dr. Fred Garmon, Founder and Executive Director of Leader Labs.

“In my lifetime, there has probably been nothing that has challenged the church more than the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic,” Hill states. “While the year 2020 was perfectly set up to be a year of focus and many of our churches had developed themes around that idea, for many of those same churches, the focus was quickly knocked off balance as the pandemic impacted our nation and world. For many ministries, instead of thriving, survival became the order of the day.”

In the post he addresses several topics, including “Agility and Humility,” “Transparent Communication,” “Countering Misinformation,” “Keeping Things Running,” and “Staying Focused on the Big Picture.” He ends the feature with five lessons learned from the man who carried the cross for Jesus.

Hill began the “Let’s Talk About It” series in late 2017 with the purpose of offering “insights and observations shared to inspire conversation,” and as a venue to share his heart about topics which seem to frequently arise in the Church of God. He has now penned more than two dozen, discussing a wide variety of topics including tithing, church planting, women in leadership, financial transparency, and ministerial calling. Some of his creative titles include, “No More Kicking Cans…We’ve Run Out of Road,” “Half-Baked Cakes,” “What Was I Thinking,” and “Your Preaching Ain’t My Cup of Tea, But It’s a Fine Cup of Coffee.”

“As your general overseer,” Hill said, “my hope is that everyone who reads these documents will do so with an open mind and heart toward reconciling some issues which have at times in the past sparked debate. The topics are an attempt to clarify our denominational position and/or cast a vision for the future.”
