Student Ministry Resources Amid COVID-19


Student Ministry Resources

As our churches search for a new “normal” in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our students feel a sense of uneasiness about their day-to-day as well as what this all means for their futures. With many schools closing – some for the remainder of the school year – our students are seeking a sense of stability in their lives. Use the following resources to help your church minister to its students during this time.

Other Church Resources

In the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic, churches around the world are having to step back and rethink how “church” can be done. Whether your church is tech-savvy or doesn’t even have an email address, there are resources to help you and your congregation navigate this unprecedented time as a family of faith. There are many, many more available than what you see here, and you can find them yourself using online search engines. We are simply wanting to provide you with a place to start—an abbreviated, categorized list of helpful articles and videos that you may find helpful—all on one web page.

Be sure to bookmark this page and visit it frequently, as we will update it regularly with new resources as they become available.
