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, “Why I Enjoy Sunday Church Visits.”

In the article, recently posted in part on Hill’s Facebook page, the general overseer reflects on the rewards and joys of visiting with the smaller churches of the Church of God denomination.

“For about half of my Sunday appointments since the beginning of 2021, I have been blessed to be with churches of less than eighty in attendance,” Hill begins. “Several of the churches were actually attended by less than fifty. I have thoroughly enjoyed being with all of them. Most importantly, I have made many new friends and have heard some amazing life stories from these pastors and their families along the way.”

In the post he shares a few of the stories from the recent visits to the congregations, the sizes of which make up a majority of the churches in the Church of God. He cites their histories, leaders that have been set forth, and the pride in maintaining facilities.

He concludes his thoughts with a reflection summarizing the experiences: “As I fly home tonight after another wonderful series of services, I can’t help but celebrate these pastors and their incredible congregations. Churches of all sizes and composition have a glorious place to fill in God’s Kingdom and in working to Finish the Great Commission.”

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, while others are thoughtful reminisces, such as this latest entry.”
