At Home Resources

Please note the following resources that are available to your family as we deal with this time of isolation. It is important that we remain connected by phone and by internet. Here is some information as to how this has changed our approach to ministry as an organization during this time. Please contact me if you need anything as we seek the help of God to navigate our way.

  • Children's Ministries

    Children’s Ministries has resources for children’s services at home. Here is a respected source by Apostolic UPCI Children’s Evangelist Justin Hamby: www.facebook.com/rokministries. There are many services to see and share with our children! Children’s sermons by several children’s evangelists will soon be available to view and download at https://upcichildrensministries.org/

  • Global Missions

    The safety and care of our constituents and missionaries globally and on deputation amid the pandemic is one of our top priorities. We ask you to join us in prayer globally for our leaders and members for God’s protection and guidance. We have taken the following steps:

    • To be good stewards, Global Missions has canceled all deputational services for the next two weeks except for online services in a desire to protect our missionary family as well as our faithful church members. Our directors are offering facilities where the missionaries can stay during this time. We will reevaluate our strategy on March 30, 2020.
    • Short-term missionary personnel have been asked to postpone travel to the field for the next two weeks, and we will reevaluate on March 30, 2020.
    • Our missionary force overseas has been encouraged in the past to have an emergency plan for food and finances. We have written to all and made additional finances available as needed so that they are prepared. We have also informed them that if any feel it expedient to return to North America we will facilitate this.
    • All activities around the world are being postponed according to the directives of the respective governments.
    • We have encouraged the worldwide leadership to take advantage of this opportunity to minister to their nations using means that will not endanger the health of those involved. This is an open door for us to minister to those who are looking to God in this crisis.
  • Division of Publications

    This difficult season underscores the importance of discipleship within the home. We encourage individuals to make their homes a center for nourishing spiritual growth. Pentecostal Publishing House (PPH) has released a free family devotional so parents can guide their children in a time of Bible reflection and spiritual conversation, available at www.pentecostalpublishing.com/response.

    • With school closures and changes to church schedules, families may also benefit from Apostolic reading resources. As such, Pentecostal Publishing House (PPH) is providing free ebooks for children and significant discounts on select ebooks for adults.
    • These unique circumstances may have a distinct impact on individuals with special needs. With schools and churches changing their schedules, some may have difficulty coping with the disruptions. Anyone so affected can connect with ABLE Ministry, a network of support for Accepting, Believing, Loving, and Embracing individuals and families affected by disabilities. You can find this group by searching “ABLE Ministry UPCI” on Facebook.
  • Ladie's Ministries

    This is a great time to get together with family devotions. God knows what is going on! This could be a time of revival in your home. Due to state regulations, many ladies’ conferences have been cancelled. Some of the ladies are requesting that their registration not be refunded but be used as a seed offering for Mothers Memorial. What a great idea! “If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.” (See Psalm 90:9–10.) God’s got this!

  • Youth Ministries

    During the pandemic, UPCI Youth Ministries is working to keep our apostolic youth and young adults connected to godly resources. Rather than allowing this time to be spent idle, they are promoting many great resources through social media. By utilizing Facebook live and Instagram, they will encourage students and youth workers about resources that are readily available. Youth and young adults can take advantage of InsideOut, YM podcasts, special online teaching and preaching messages, and they can engage in the YM reading challenge.
