26 July 2020, 6:30pm- 8:00pm;
Since the beginning of corona virus, thousands of local churches had to stop Sunday worship services, without knowing when they could reopen again. As the countrywide lock down and other restrictions are lifted, few local churches started opening their weekly services, but cautiously. As the COVID-19 positive cases are still increasing, the air is filled with uncertainty and confusion.
Corona virus is not only killing people, it’s crushing family incomes and pushing them into an ever-ending debt trap. The future is looking bleak for many countries, with weakened capacities to face any eventuality. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, with people not knowing how and when this pandemic end.
There is a great need for local churches to be aware of the context in which we are living in, and how to mitigate the short term and long term risks which affects them. Local churches also needs to understand the emerging opportunities this pandemic is bringing to our fold, so that we can utilize those and continue to minister to the congregation more effectively.
In this context, Transbiblica and Christian Institute of Management (CIM) are jointly organizing a webinar on ‘Effective Risk Management for local churches during COVID-19’
Purpose: To facilitate local churches to identify and mitigate potential risks, as well as utilize potential opportunities arising due to COVID-19
