COVID-19 Epidemic: FREE Resources for Pastors and their Congregations

In the midst of this crisis, we reached out to our partners to assist pastors. We were shocked by the response – within the first 30 minutes of the request over 40 organizations replied with an incredible selection of FREE resources to help provide you and your congregation hope. Our prayer for this is simple: that it give you encouragement during the difficult days ahead. While many congregations are unable to meet in person in their church building it can be hard to feel connected as a body with your members. However, we believe that God can move powerfully both in our church buildings and in our homes to keep us firmly rooted in Him and tightly knit with one another.
