Resources for churches

We are very aware that the mission sector has been greatly affected by the Covid-19 situation. Mission-focused churches and church streams have been impacted physically, emotionally, financially and mentally. We are so thankful that, in times like these, we can lean on Jesus. The staff here at Global Connections are continually praying for our members and the Covid-19 crisis that has hit our world. We are also thankful for the abundance of useful advice, resources and thought-provoking articles that have cropped up since coronavirus hit our shores. We have collated some of this information below and hope that you find this page useful.
