As the facts (and myths) regarding the coronavirus continue to pour into our emails daily, it can feel very overwhelming to ministry leaders and their daily operations. 

 

In an attempt to alleviate some of that pressure, Ministry Pacific has compiled all the resources we've received from our insurance carriers and ministry partners into one place for you.

 

We will continually make additions as they come in, and keep up to date with  any current news surrounding COVID-19.

As the American people are advised more and more to self-isolate and practice social distancing, we find the need for community and servant-hearted leadership all the more vital.

 

Ministry Pacific remains open to serve and assist your church through these times of crisis, with our team members working from home. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns regarding your church, and we will gladly respond back!

 

 

SEPTEMBER

23rd

"The death toll in the United States from the coronavirus pandemic has surpassed 200,000 -- the most fatalities of any country in the world. 

 

The staggering scale of that loss is hard to fathom. It's equivalent to suffering the effects of 109 Hurricane Katrinas. Or enduring the 9/11 attacks every day for 66 days."
