IMC Pastoral Update Letter

6 December 2021

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Grace to you, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Another calendar year is drawing to a close, and as such we have pause to consider what the next year might be like. As followers of Jesus we walk by faith, and collectively face the challenges of the times in which we live. We've probably prayed a whole lot more during the past year. That's a good thing. Prayer moves mountains. It connects us with our heavenly Father.

Throughout the International Ministerial Congress of the Church of God (Seventh Day) we recognise the importance of reflecting the unique distinctiveness of Christ by being "lights in this world" in all we say and do. As we navigate increasingly uncertain and often difficult times, we'll probably be given more opportunities to speak on Christ's behalf. Depending on which IMC Zone we live in, and even within each national conference, our circumstances often differ. Some countries have more COVID lock-down and quarantine restrictions than others. Travel is limited for many of our pastors and overseers, adversely affecting many of our members in more isolated areas.

A highlight during the past two years has been the emergence of the livestreaming of Sabbath worship services around the world. We've probably also participated in Zoom conference or local Bible Study meetings. While these technologies help temporarily bridge the gap, they still don't replace face to face meeting expressed often through hugs, holy kisses and the sharing at mealtimes.

Please be praying for the leadership of the church around the world, so we may be wise for the times in which we live, ever listening to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Please continue to pray for our brethren who live in isolated parts of the world who have been further impacted by COVID. And, finally, please pray to the LORD of the harvest to grant that many will turn, repent and in being baptised, also share in the joy of eternal fellowship.

We're also praying for greater clarity with regards to the planning and hosting of the next IMC Congress meeting. Plans to have our international church leadership come together in one place, in safety and in health, as is our custom every four years, isn't all that clear yet. Many of us have been asking when this might be. May our patience be rewarded by His grace and timing.

Also, a reminder that any donations from the recent IMC Annual Sabbath on 6 November 2021 may be forwarded to the International Ministerial Congress, with details available online at

Thank you for your ongoing partnership in the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

On behalf of the International Ministerial Congress,


Date: 6 November 2021

We're planning on facilitating up to seven worship services in the 24 hour period of 6 November 2021, and this list will soon be available on this website.

Continuing the Mission of Jesus

The theme this year is "Continuing the Mission of Jesus", and each Sabbath worship service will be designed around exploring this theme. What was the "mission of Jesus"? What are the elements of mission we must embrace? We hope and pray that our collective celebration around the world is a blessing to all.


The International Ministerial Congress actively works to take the gospel to the world by equipping our national conferences, pastors and missionaries. We work for doctrinal unity, and as such, we thank God for his good work among us, even during this time of pandemic.

Our identity and purpose is in Jesus Christ alone - in His word, in His will, for His glory, for ever and ever. However, we need "our daily bread" resources to continue ministering to those needs around us.

May our celebration together around the world during this Sabbath on 6 November 2021 unite us further, strengthen us, and help us build greater Kingdom in-roads, as we give thanks for your donations and look forward to working together as Ambassadors of Christ.

More information coming soon.

Message from our President

Jesus commissions us to live and share the gospel, and this implies both a pressing need and a great sense of urgency. With the gospel as the only means of salvation for humanity and faced with the reality of sin, suffering and death that characterizes this post-modern age in which we live, the people of God must redirect their pastoral work in the light of this divine mandate:
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 18-20 NASB)
The whole word for the whole world means: preaching the gospel to the unreached without adding to or taking away from Jesus’ message; edifying all believers with all teachings in the Scriptures to become true Christian disciples; worshiping the one and only God in all time, place and circumstance, and opposing all idolatry which is sin; fellowshipping with one another as a sign and testimony of unity, overcoming cultural, racial, and linguistic barriers so the world will believe in Jesus; and serving our neighbors in order to transform their lives and surroundings.
Jesus sends us to carry out the totality of the redemptive mission. It is not a privilege for some, but a responsibility for all. We must go to the whole world, with the whole message from God’s word, knowing that He is with us all days—always, even to the end of the age.
Ramon Ruiz, IMC President
