You've managed your initial response to the coronavirus crisis. You've canceled church services, moved online, deployed virtual small groups, started working remotely, ramped up communication via email and social media... You're figuring out how to manage the day-to-day.

The crisis is still escalating. "Back to normal" is just a wish. Easter is a few weeks away.

Have you caught your breath yet? We haven't. 

But still...

Leaders can't help but look for opportunities in the midst of trials. We sense God's doing something incredible that we're only beginning to see. We believe the Church will shine in this season, and will emerge healthier and stronger.

So if you're a leader already toying with what your church's next steps should be, even if it's too early to start taking them—Dream with us.

In this episode, Tony and Amy dig into opportunities we see for churches for immediate, near-term and longer-term change.

Will you redeem the time? While events around the world have brought on growing fear and anxiety, the Church stands on the edge of an incredible opportunity to bring hope.

If your church won’t be holding weekend services or other large gatherings in the coming weeks, your team actually may have more time on their hand than ever before.

How will you redeem the time for good?

In this episode, Tony and Amy are exploring how pastors respond effectively in crisis to both communicate hope AND identify opportunities to do things you've ever before had the opportunity to do.

Needless to say, a lot has changed in our world in the last 48 hours.

While the world around us pauses and isolates to try to combat the spread of the coronavirus, I believe the opportunity has never been greater for the church to shine. And because of that, I think you and your church are uniquely positioned to impact your community. 

Even though worship gatherings will likely pause at your church, the time has never been more appropriate for you and your ministry team to be the church

Secret shopper data from the work we do with 100s of churches each year shows us some interesting trends...

Even churches who are clear on their mission field develop blind spots over time. We get used to the way we do things. We don’t see the “dust” anymore, so it becomes harder for us to really see what an outsider sees.

In this last episode of our series on creating compelling weekend services, Amy and Tony discuss 4 blind spots pastors often tell us a Secret Shopper revealed for them, and some next steps we counsel churches to take when those blind spots become visible.

Overestimating the effectiveness of the weekend?

Every church wants its weekend services to help people grow closer to Christ. But if you're not planning well, great ideas get left on the table.

You're likely missing opportunities to get the best from your team and to lead the people in your seats towards their next steps in faith.

In this episode, Tony and Amy discuss simple adjustments you can make. You might just find yourself marveling at how much easier it becomes to make the weekends remarkable.
