COVID-19 & The Church

Helping Pastors in a Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic presents every church leader with unprecedented challenges. But even though our ministries may have changed, God’s Word hasn’t. The Bible still guides us as we move through the challenge of pastoring during a pandemic. Lord willing, this site will be updated regularly. It will host conversations, FAQs, articles, podcasts, and other resources—from both 9Marks and around the web. Our goal is simple: to help churches during the COVID-19 crisis.
