COVID-19 Roundtable: Lessons from a Church Plant & a Megachurch

We’re happy to bring you a special roundtable discussion around how COVID-19 is impacting churches across the country. In this episode, you’ll hear from two church leaders on the front lines of responding to the current crisis.

In this roundtable conversation you’ll hear more about:

  • The thought process behind how these churches came the decisions they did in response to the crisis.
  • Hear about some pitfalls around going live with streaming and get some tips on how to do it right.
  • Learn about some best practices for having both “high tech & high touch” in this time of self-isolation.
  • Hear an honest conversation around how these churches are dealing with the financial impact of the current world we live in.
  • Get some help to step forward as a church.

We’re honored that Peter Gowesky from Hope City Church in Sarasota, Florida and Josh Crain from Inland Hills Church in Chino, California would take some time to help us as we lead in this season!
