Challenging moments can also be the most refining.
As communities turn to places of worship for both spiritual counsel and practical guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s integral, now more than ever, for churches and other faith organizations to feel equipped to lead through crisis. Everyone is facing some type of struggle, be it navigating trials due to COVID-19, overcoming fear of the unknown, or striving to nourish parishioners while maintaining social distance.
To provide an applicable roadmap on how to deal with crisis, a panel of faith leaders supported by the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg and the Florida Department of Health, Pinellas County, have prepared a series of online seminars to help prepare pastors and faith leaders to best serve during this tumultuous season.
The first seminar/webinar in the “Leading with Faith & Equity During COVID-19” series will share best practices, insights, and resources including available data, recommended guidelines and considerations for reopening centers of worship, and resources for ongoing recovery.
