In response to the coronavirus, the LifeWay Leadership team has developed pandemic response resources that are being made available for free to assist pastors and church leaders at MinistryGrid.com/coronavirus.
The free training course “How to Prepare for the Coronavirus at Your Church” walks leaders through developing a plan, phases of implementation, attendance metrics that should be monitored, how to alter regular ministry practices, and more.
The available documents include a sample pandemic response policy, suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and checklists for guest services and kids ministry.
To access the sample response plan and other free pandemic resources, church leaders need to log in or create a free LifeWay account at MinistryGrid.com.
Once logged in, participants can view four specific videos: “How to Create a Pandemic Response Plan for Your Church,” “Three Phases of a Pandemic Response Plan,” “Your Church’s Leadership Pipeline in a Pandemic Response Plan,” and “Pandemic Planning Considerations.”
In addition to practical checklists and other downloadable documents, the course also contains links to applicable CDC guidelines.
Church leaders can find more information on the free training resources at MinistryGrid.com/coronavirus.
