Description
The coronavirus pandemic has challenged leaders in every facet of society. This crisis has called into question the policies and practices of corporations and civic organizations. It has exposed the inequities within our nation and within our world, especially in terms of access to health care and support for healthcare professionals. And, of course, the church is not exempt. The pandemic has shined a light on and in the local church. It has called into question the relevance of traditions and religious practices. As a result, pastors and other church leaders have also come under evaluation. The pandemic has uncovered and unmasked leadership. Additionally, it has given pastors and church leaders opportunities to pivot from an outdated approach to ministry to one that makes sense and is relevant for the current time. In this book, you will explore practical tools for worship in the virtual space, the necessity of self-care to maintain your mental health, and the prioritization of family. Essentially, leadership matters, and pandemic pastors must lead with integrity. This attribute is non- negotiable in ministry.
