This was the first part of a two-part S2S Event held on January 9, 2021.

Also, see part 2: “Direction in Chaos” by David Bercot.

2020 has been a year like none other. Who could have imagined the Covid-19 pandemic, rioting in the streets, a contested election, and restrictions of freedoms we’ve always taken for granted – all in one year!?

2021 has opened with high tensions culminating with violence in the US Capitol.

This has resulted in an abundance of fake news, conspiracy theories, and a highly divided society.

In this first session on January 9, Strength to Strength welcomed three speakers to share about practical ways in which you can exploit the challenges of our time for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of Jesus.

  • Patrick Matthews lives in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. In the past ½ year, he has organized a “Matthew 25 Project” and has distributed 10,000,000+ pounds of free food to organizations within a four-state area that can then distribute those food resources to their local ministries.
  • Andrew Kurtz lives in Granby, Massachusetts, and has organized a distribution with his church family to address food-insecurity in their local area. He will share how with minimal effort you can reproduce this model in your own community to establish connections and turn strangers into relationships.
  • Jonathan Heisey lives in Pueblo, Colorado, and will be sharing about his interactions in ministry with international students at their local college. Now with the pandemic, they’ve utilized Zoom for an international reach. Learn how he is stewarding this crisis as an opportunity for the advancement of the Kingdom.

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
