Coronavirus Response Resources for Pastors

While the world around us pauses and isolates to try to combat the spread of COVID-19,
there is a great opportunity for the church to shine.

Coronavirus and the Church

The time has never been more appropriate for you and your ministry team to be the church.

Though there’s never been anything like this in our lifetimes, we have previously experienced crisis. When crisis disrupts individual lives, communities and even our nation, people are inclined to turn to the church for assurance and understanding. This will be no exception. We’re certain God will use this crisis to turn people’s hearts toward him.

Because of that, we think you and your church are uniquely positioned to impact your community. Even though worship gatherings will likely pause at your church, the time has never been more appropriate for you and your ministry team to be the church.

Lead like Jesus has transformed your life. And leverage this moment for the church to bring assurance and hope to a world filled with fear.

We are now creating resources every day to try to support you as you lead through this crisis. We will keep updating this page with new content as we roll it out. We will also curate content here that we find from the hundreds of other church leaders who are pulling together tools and resources to support you.

We’re FOR you, and we’re in this with you.
