JBA COVID Response


A Word From Our Strategist

There are circumstances in life that ask more of us than usual.

COVID-19 is certainly one of those times.

Our thinking is being stretched about what it means to be the church without a church building. Many of us find ourselves with more questions than answers.

  •   How do we fulfill the Great Commission in social isolation?
  •   How do we leverage this unprecedented season for disciple-making?
  •   What does loving our neighbor look like in a Coronavirus environment?
  •   How will this affect our new church plants?
  •   What does this mean for revitalization efforts in our city?
  •   What does my church need to do to prepare to reopen once the social distancing guidelines are lifted?

In the pages below, we have assembled a helpful collection of resources to equip pastors and church leaders as they respond to the unique questions and opportunities COVID-19 is presenting locally.
