Each day seems to bring new changes and closures related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Churches and individuals are using a combination of information, technology, and creativity to minister without unintentionally making things worse.
We’ve compiled communication and ministry-related resources here along with links. And we’re crowdsourcing the effort: If you have resources that you would like to add to the list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll continue to update.
