Fall 2021 Issue of Engage Journal Now Live

The Fall 2021 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 or volunteering in church ministry. Engage offers practical ministry ideas, recommendations, 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 and include live links to websites of advertisers.

Featured articles in this issue include one that asks the question, “Should we plant churches during a pandemic?” Former editor of Charisma magazine J. Lee Grady has an article dealing with how to “fine tune your frequency to hear God’s voice.” Another entry deals with creativity and innovation in the small church.

General Overseer Tim Hill continues the series, “Let’s Talk About It,” with an entry entitled, “Preach ‘Em Happy!” The Doctrine and Polity papers, a series of articles that addresses the Church of God’s core values, continues in this issue with a scriptural analysis on the difficult topic of suicide within Christianity. The article is written by Dr. Jerald Daffe, a faculty member at Lee University.

A new column is introduced this issue called “From the Archive,” which brings back articles from past issues of Engage. While at least a decade in print, the topics and guidance given are still relevant today, including this debut entry written by Dr. Paul L. Walker entitled, “Challenges Confronting 21st Century Pastoral Ministry.”

Recurring sections include a column penned by Church of God Legal Counsel Dennis Watkins who addresses a hot topic of today, the Covid vaccine. President and CEO of the Benefits Board Art Rhodes talks about the perfect allocation for ministers saving toward retirement.

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 through logging into the website www.cogengage.org. On the site, the publication may be viewed in a convenient PDF format. There are also archived copies of the publication going back several years.
