Coronavirus resource for leaders and churches

Not long ago, the eyes of the world were focused on Wuhan, China as the virus now known as COVID-19 began to spread. In recent days, the center of the coronavirus storm in America has been Kirkland, WA. Our office at ConvergeNW has received numerous questions and requests for resources/perspective as each leader and church is responding to the disease.   

I’ve collected a few examples that illustrate how ConvergeNW leaders are responding. The most comprehensive is from Northshore Community Church. They are literally in the epicenter of the US outbreak and have done a masterful job of thinking through the issues, communicating effectively, establishing new policies and finding avenues of outreach. I highly recommend that you click here to read “All Things Coronavirus” from NCC’s communications team. 

Another example of a congregational letter is from Pastor Keith Krell at Crossroads Bible Church in Bellevue, WA. 

These are the moments that define who we are and in WHOM we trust. Take care of your family, lead by faith and communicate clearly to your people. I’m praying that Jesus will give you strength and compassion as you lead by faith.
