As COVID-19 realities and precautions continue, we find ourselves in a new reality. The once normal or familiar way of ministering to children and families is under stress and strain. For many, moving forward might seem slow, sporadic, inconsistent, or even stalled out.

“While we wade through this pandemic, our purpose of ministry is to still help children find faith in Jesus.” -Courtney WilsonChrist Community Church, St Charles IL.

If this declaration is true for you, we are going to lean into one another to find a few creative, innovative, and simple ways to continue ministry to children. In this panel webinar, discover what 3 children’s ministry leaders are doing now to keep their ministries advancing through these challenging times.
