The team at the Humanitarian Disaster Institute at Wheaton College just published a free coronavirus resource webpage for churches that includes a new preparedness manual, planning template, articles, and a free webinar series.
The resource webpage features recent HDI articles and media outreach to help equip churches for the coronavirus including “Preparing Your Church for Coronavirus (COVID-19): A Step-by-Step, Research-Informed, and Faith-Based Planning Manual” and “Coronavirus Church Planning Template.”
One of the unique features of this manual and template is that pastors and church leaders can download, complete, and save their plans digitally.
Beginning on Friday, March 13th HDI will start a new time-limited webinar series on church preparedness and response to COVID-19. They plan to continue to offer a new webinar each week on the same day and time as needed to help churches adapt to the potential changing needs and challenges ahead.
All these materials are free and without cost to users and can be found at: https://www.wheaton.edu/academics/academic-centers/humanitarian-disaster-institute/covid-19/
