The economic impact of COVID-19 is going to be far reaching and as I write this post we are only at the beginning.
For churches, we have to act in faith to believe that God is at work in the midst of our challenging circumstances, but we also need to be wise with our organisational and governance leadership. For many of us who have planted churches in the last 15 years, we have not had to get through a global crisis. In my business context, my career started with Y2K, the first startup company I was involved in struggled through the dotcom crash and the software company I co-founded started in the twelve months before the GFC – suffice to say I’ve been through a few crisis points.
In these times creating (if you don’t have) and executing your church continuity plan is vital and so we've developed a framework that we are using to take a structured approach to making the touch decisions we need to at this time.

Hope it all helps.
