In times of chaos and disruption, it can be tempting to double down on what’s safe and known. But times of change can also be the catalyst for innovation, creativity, and fresh imagination. —Guy Wasko, Pastor, Sanctuary Church NYC

We’ve gathered together resources from some of our partners, pastors, and other organizations to help spur on your church’s creativity as you move forward during COVID-19.  

How Church Online Helps Your Ministry Overcome Coronavirus & Other Emergencies

Our partner Stadia shares some great resources on ways to broadcast your service, engaging your community, and a webinar recording on How Church Online Helps Your Ministry Overcome Coronavirus & Other Emergencies. 

Digital Tools during the Coronavirus

Director of Communications for the Vineyard UK Mark Crosby has crowdsourced this helpful list of useful digital communication tools for church leaders, communications teams, and church staff to refer to during the coronavirus outbreak.

Leadership in the Coronavirus Crisis Podcast

Leadership in the Coronavirus Crisis is the latest podcast from Ed Stetzer, Co-Executive Director of the Send Institute, a think-tank for North American churches. Episodes include guests like Andy Crouch on Love in the Age of the Coronavirus, Jamie Aten, Ph.D. – Disaster Psychologist on What We Can Expect, Terri Watson, Psy.D. – Psychologist on how to Help People Cope with Isolation, and more.

Coronavirus and the Church

The Coronavirus and the Church site from Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College, the Peace Plan, and the Humanitarian Disaster Institute has a goal of assisting churches and ministry leaders as they prepare for and respond to the effects of the Coronavirus in their congregations and communities. Their resources include a church planning manual, upcoming webinars, and links to articles from Dos and Don’ts of Preaching during the Coronavirus Pandemic to Alternatives to Handshaking. 

Making The Change: From Central Gathering to House Church

Justin Mattera, a church planter in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn had to make a pivot overnight from the successful and growing Sunday service approach to a church that meets in distributed house churches across the city. In this interview, Guy Wasko interviews Justin via ZOOM call and they discuss what happened, what’s changed and why house church is better than Justin could’ve ever imagined. If you’re trying to reimagine a new way forward, especially post COVID-19, this is a conversation we think you’ll be inspired by.
