Leading your Church into the New Normal of COVID-19

I recently was invited by Scott Ridout, who serves as the President of Converge, a movement of more than 1,300 churches to “Start and Strengthen Churches Worldwide,” to participate in a conversation about the impact of Covid-19 and the future new normal churches will be leading through.

In the conversation we discussed the new normal churches are currently leading through as a result of COVID-19 and the different approaches a church may take in the future depending upon the following 3 unique circumstances:

  1. A Blizzard: Is this a storm that the Church needs to weather for a moment?
  2. A Winter: Is this a season that we need to be prepared to get through?
  3. An Ice Age: Is this a prolonged event that will result in a new normal?

Along with myself and Scott Ridout the conversation was made up of the following Church Leaders:

  • Craig Smith, Lead Pastor of Mission Hills Church, a large mega-church in Littleton, CO.
  • Mike Schnepp, Executive Pastor at Vox Church, a fast growing multi-site church with 9 campuses across New England.
  • Rod Hairston, Lead Pastor of Messiah Community Church in the Baltimore area.  Rod planted the church while he was chaplain for the Baltimore Ravens (yes he has 2 Super Bowl rings). As an African American Pastor he is both experienced and articulate in the unique challenges facing multicultural congregations around the country.
  • Kyle Robinson, Executive Pastor of Wooddale Church a large multisite church with 4 locations in the Minneapolis Area.

The Church’s Response to COVID-19: Same Mission, New Strategies

The Church’s Response to the Coronavirus: Same Mission, New Strategies

Webinar hosted by Tony Morgan, Amy Anderson and Sean Bublitz

45 Minute Webinar + 15 Minute Live Q & A
We will send out a replay after the webinar to everyone who registers.



The whirlwind of ministry just changed, and with each passing day the uncertainty seems to increase. 

We’re with you. 

As church leaders, we’re in uncharted territory—for this generation, at least—but the Church has withstood and thrived in times of persecution and plague, panic and need.

Beyond the obvious changes to our gatherings, how else is this pandemic impacting us? What will be the “new reality” for our churches when we get to the other side?

For years, culture has been moving much faster than the Church. This crisis is forcing our strategies to catch up.

FREE WEBINAR

In this free webinar, Tony Morgan is hosting a conversation about why NOW is the time to shift away from asking, “When will things get back to normal? Instead, we need to be asking, “What does this mean for us long-term?”

Join us for an hour to participate in a conversation about:

  • The Church’s new reality post-pandemic
  • Redefining how we accomplish our mission and align our teams
  • New strategies for the new reality

The mission doesn’t change, but our methods must. Sign up to join the conversation! Join us for an hour on Thursday, April 16th at 1 p.m. EST for a free webinar.
