Rev. Mark Richardson
 

Romans 12:18 (NIV)
18 If it is possible, as much as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Hebrews 12:14 (NIV)
14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

I thought about writing a book a few years ago when my children were teenagers and in their early twenties. The title of the book would have been, “Yes, I Know; Yes, You’re right, But…” If you have parented a teenager, you probably could have written the book yourself. They always seem to know what to do, and they seem to know what you tell them is right, but they always have reasons that led them to making the wrong decisions. Lest we are too hard on them, there are two things we need to remember. First, we were young once, and if we dust off the cobwebs, we can hear our parents lamenting our “reasoned, yes I know and yes, you’re right, but…” Second, scripture is full of things that we know are right, and we sometimes find ourselves adding “but” to reason to ourselves why we can get away without following them. After all, if that other person had not said or done what he or she did… It’s all their fault, and when they humble themselves and come and apologize in tears, then we can talk! Have you ever found yourself on either side of comments like that? I have on both

The two scriptures above have resonated in my spirit for years, and I know they are in the Word of God, and I know that they are right. I do everything I can to make sure that I don’t add the conditional “but.” We are commanded in God’s Word to attempt to live at peace with everyone, as much as it depends on us. The writer of Hebrews exhorts us to make every effort to live at peace with everyone, and to be holy so that we will see the Lord. There is no room in those exhortations for contingencies on our part. We must do all we can, as much as it depends on us. What a challenge to us, because it really puts the onus on us to exhaust every effort we can to be at peace with everyone. Now, in reality, there are those people that just don’t want to live at peace with us, but that is on them. It is on them only if we have exhausted every effort! If not, God doesn’t let us off the hook.

The difficulty of this challenge is that it includes people in several categories:

 
People with whom we have had conflicts
People who have said or done things to hurt us, our families, or our churches
People who are not easy to get along with
People who don’t have our best interests at heart
People with whom we disagree politically, doctrinally, and socially
People who don’t look like us ethnically or racially
Etc., Etc., Etc… There are no exceptions
 

How then do we respond to this challenge? Are we willing to live out this Biblical mandate? Are we willing to humble ourselves and do what God requires, even when it might take every ounce of our fiber to make the overtures of peacemaking? To begin we must remember that we are to pursue Christlikeness. He went to the cross to bring full pardon for sin and death, dying in our place. Because of Him, everyone who comes to Him and receive Him as Savior and submit to Him as Lord can be fully forgiven and set free from death’s curse. He made every effort, as much as it depended on Him (and it all did) to pursue peace with everyone. He went so far as to make peace between humanity and God through His atoning sacrifice, destroying the enmity that stood between us and God. By doing so, He brought us peace with God so that we could have the peace of God that goes beyond comprehension. And this peace, if we are willing to make every effort for it, will indeed guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (as the Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4).

Friends, as I write this to you, I am aware of situations across the great State of Michigan, and beyond, where brother and sisters in the Lord are at odds with each other. Relationships in the church, in our families, and in the community are broken and need the restoration of peace. We have been given the gift of peace with God and access to the peace of God. It is up to us to be the ones that make every effort to live at peace with everyone. Ask yourself, if you find yourself at odds with anyone, or your church is at odds with others in your community, have I done everything I could do to live at peace with everyone around me? Even if you feel that the other person or group is in the wrong, have you made every effort, as much as it depend on you, to live at peace with them? Remember, our mandate is to be like Christ, and it pleases Him when we give it our all.

I want to encourage you to do three things to press into this:

1. Pray fervently for the Lord to give you the desire, the wisdom, and the open door to make the overtures necessary to pursue peace.
2. Pray fervently for those with whom you are at odds that God will indeed bless them to desire to make peace as well.
3. Take every step in obedience that the Lord reveals to you, and don’t allow resistance to stop you from making every effort. This will most surely lead to confession, repentance, forgiveness, and other heat wrenching and challenging steps. Yet, it is worth it to experience the blessing of God’s fruit of peace.

Trust me, the devil doesn’t want it to happen, but God does. The Lord will prevail with your earnest and committed effort. It is hard work, but the effort is worth the success. My Pastor and Mentor, Rev. Dr. Ronald J. Fowler, long-term Senior Pastor of the Arlington Church of God in Akron, OH, lives by and encourages others to live by a three step process for success.

1. Aim High
2. Pay the Price
3. Stay the Course

It worked for him throughout his life and ministry, and it will work for us as we desire to make every effort, as much as it depends on us to live at peace with everyone. By the way, this is a very key part of living holy, which will allow us to see the Lord. I pray that the Lord will bless us with the powerful blessings of His reconciling power.

With love and prayer for you,
Rev. Mark K. Richardson, State Pastor

Church of God Ministries, The Church of God in Michigan, and several other states have entered into a partnership with a group called the Full Strength Network. As most of our pastors and ministers know, we have offered the Ministry to Ministers Program through our Pastoral Health Team for years. Many of our ministers have utilized its counseling support resources over the years. In particular, the challenges of the past several years have greatly impacted the mental health and vitality of our ministers, and the counseling has been helpful. The Full Strength Network offers a significantly less expensive and much richer opportunity for not only counseling, but coaching and support resources for our pastors and ministers. The Church of God in Michigan, through the Pastoral Health Ministry Team, has purchased 10 licenses for our credentialed pastors and ministers, and spouse or teen living within the home. It included online access to fully accredited counselors and coaches in a fully confidential manner. There is no cost to you for these excellent resources. You simply need to fill out the registration form and they will follow up with you to begin providing you with excellent ministry service. The website for the Full Strength Network and The Church of God in Michigan Registration links are listed below. Please take the time to see what great offerings they have for you at no cost to you, and register. You will be glad you did.

Rev. Tom Planck
 

In summer of 2012, the regional pastors from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and a few other interested Church of God leaders gathered in a conference room in Fishers, Indiana. The purpose of the conversation was to explore the idea of a partnership that could potentially accelerate church multiplication in the Midwest.

One conversation turned into two. And by the end of a third conversation, the Midwest Multiplication Initiative was born! Healthy Growing Churches joined the partnership at its inception and Tom Planck was appointed to be a co-catalyst alongside the regional pastors to spark a multiplication conversation in the Midwest.

It was our hunch that if we could get pastors in circles having the right conversation we would get movement, movement toward multiplication.

So that is exactly what we did.

We launched multiple cohorts to get leaders from all over the Midwest exploring multiplication thinking. Dozens of cohorts have been started and hundreds of pastors have participated in one of these learning communities since 2014. We started an annual gathering in Lima, Ohio so we had one full day each year where pastors from the Midwest could deep dive on what it might look like for their church to multiply. Hundreds of midwest pastors have gathered in Lima since 2014. We hosted several Discovery Days in hopes that other potential multipliers and established churches would say yes to launching something new.

Every year of the partnership we have leveraged the gift that is the Exponential conference and community. Hundreds of Midwest pastors have attended the national Orlando event or the Chicagoland regional. Beyond that, Exponential’s vast library of resources has helped us build a common language that is also empowering us to continue to build a multiplication culture in the region.

A few years into our partnership, it became painfully obvious that we had been challenging churches to multiply on a macro level (churches that launch new multiplication ventures), but we had very few churches that were multiplying on a micro level (disciples that make disciples).

We knew we had to pivot and we did.

In 2020, just before the start of the pandemic, we launched Mission 120. Our goal was to raise up and resource 120 disciple making churches in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana.

It took us a couple waves of cohorts, but we finally have at least 120 churches in the region in the various staging of building and constructing their disciple making pathway. The results has been hundreds, maybe even north of a thousand new disciples made!

It is hard to believe that it has been a full decade since that first conversation. We have learned a lot in the past ten years. We have also accomplished a great deal beyond what is mentioned above.

It is beyond exciting to see the growing number of churches in the region who are fully engaged in answering the pressing question of what it will look like for their church to multiply. We believe we are approaching a tipping point that will fuel our multiplication vision for the years to come.

We have launched twenty-eight multiplication ventures since the partnership began! We have launched new churches, several multisite campuses, a network of missional communities, and even the regions first Fresh Expression of church.

We are also thrilled to announce we have added Illinois Ministries to the Midwest Multiplication Initiative. We are excited to have Eric Livingston as a partner and look forward to the many ways we will see the church multiply in Illinois!

As we prepare for our eleventh year of partnership, conversations are happening to forecast where God is leading us in our developing multiplication story. We are convinced that we are at the bottom of the J curve and fully anticipate an acceleration of what God has in store for our future.

Find a seat on the bus. Link arms with others. It is going to be a fun ride!

Lighthouse Community Church
 

On Sunday, September 18, the Lighthouse Community Church of God in Redford, Michigan celebrated their 100th Anniversary as a congregation. It began with three faithful women praying, which led to the Wisconsin Avenue Church of God in Detroit. Through many years of ministry, challenges and a relocation to the Redford Community, the church has been impacting lives for Jesus Christ for 100 years. In the picture you see State Pastor Mark Richardson, State Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Dr. Bill Jones, and Pastor Dale Turner at the Celebration Luncheon. Please keep this great congregation in your prayers as they seek to do significant outreach for Jesus Christ in their community.

A special thank you from Min. Sharon Richardson to all those who served, ministered to us, and participated in the Ministry Wives Retreat during the weekend of September 16-18, at the St. Francis Retreat Center in Dewitt. It was a wonderful time of prayer, ministry, fellowship, food, fun, and refreshing. We look forward to next year’s retreat, and we are hoping that if you didn’t get a chance to join us, that you will next year. More details of the event will be coming your way in the future. We also want to invite all of our Ministry Wives to join us at the General Assembly Meeting for a Ministry Wives Tea during the Friday Morning General Assembly Session. Rev. Dr. Kimberly Majeski will be sharing during this time.

Perhaps your congregation is in need of professional, Christian mediation concerning conflict. Perhaps your church could benefit from training in Crucial Conversations and how to share even difficult information with others without doing damage. We can help with that through Rev. Chris Cottrell, who is very well trained and experienced in helping churches through these difficult challenges. His information and contacts are included below. Another good thing to keep in mind is that Chris is a native Michigander, and he always loves to come back home.
