Kairos Opportunity

As was expressed in ACOP’s recent blog post, the conditions imposed upon us all by Covid are proving to be a marathon rather than a sprint!

But how can we turn this involuntary marathon into an opportunity?

We all know about (or know personally) professing Christians who’ve walked away from their local churches. We’ve all seen surveys revealing the accelerating loss of spiritual belief taking place in North America. Worse yet, we’ve now seen the Body of Christ dividing over vaccines and politics.

And yet, we believe that Holy Spirit is always at work. We know that our omniscient, sovereign and omnipotent King declared that He would build His Church regardless of circumstances.

We preach that no strategy or structure of hellish origin can withstand the onslaught of His army. So, let’s make the most of this kairos (opportunity or appointed moment) by searching that out…

This pandemic is a God-given opportunity to turn our ship toward a new course!

After personally leading courses on 3 continents, I’m convinced that the Kairos Course is a powerful tool for helping believers everywhere understand what God is doing in history—that He’s designed them to play a significant role!

Kairos looks at what “the mission” really is and how mission-centered the Bible is. It explores the successes and failures of God’s people throughout history.

It discusses strategies for reaching the lost, some of which are no longer effective as well as new ones that God is unveiling. It explores how our cultures impact everything from our worldview to our actions, and it equips us for reaching those of different cultures.

So grab a couple of leaders from your church and come check out several online and in-person Kairos Courses being offered across Canada this winter!
