COVID-19 Resource Library
We've gathered a list of COVID-19-related resources for pastors and leaders that we hope will serve you and your churches.
Extending the Kingdom of God through church planting and missional living.
Pastors, leaders, denominations, and groups world-wide have been creating and exchanging resources to serve the local church as they look for new ways forward during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vineyard USA has assembled this list of links from resources that have been shared with our team. We continue to update this list as we are made aware of new resources. New items are added to the top of each category.
If you are a Vineyard Pastor or Leader and would like to share a COVID-19 resource with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
