Our hope is that these resources, as well as this entire season of quarantine, will renew the imaginations of Christian leaders.

Approaching this season as merely looking for workarounds to connect until we can get back to the “real” business of the church—meaning, gathering in large groups for well-produced services and events—will only land us back in the same place when we come out of the current crisis: struggling to get people to connect and largely failing to connect to the unchurched and formerly churched.

But what if we see this season as a chance to lay the groundwork for transitioning from the dominant model of ministry being done by ministry professionals to a more robust (and biblical) model of leaders equipping, blessing, and sending the people of our church communities to do the work of ministry in their families, on their blocks, and in their neighborhoods?

Wouldn’t that be amazing?
