COVID-19 continues to grow as a public health crisis here in the United States, with over 250,000 confirmed cases and a growing death count. Estimates now predict as many as 250,000 virus-related deaths will occur in the U.S. Every week, we see more drastic measures taken by federal, state, and local officials to contain the pandemic. Your church and ministry are now faced with unprecedented challenges to continue ministering to those in your care. We all know there is nothing occurring today that has caught God by surprise, and we are thankful for His continued protection and provision for His people. However, as ministry leaders, there are challenges we must face in the coming days and weeks in this highly fluid situation that will need to be closely monitored on a daily basis.
