From Viral to Virtual

As COVID 19 has come to the U.S. and taken over, InterVarsity has essentially went virtual with all our people to people interaction.  Staff teams aren’t gathering for meetings.  Supervisors aren’t traveling to campuses.  Students and Faculty aren’t in the same room with each other much less at prayer or bible study gatherings.  Yet, COVID 19 hasn’t stopped community from happening in InterVarsity.  It hasn’t stopped disciple-making conversations, bible studies, prayer gatherings or even large group meetings!  The viral has forced the virtual.

I’d like you to do two things with this blog.  Both can happen at the link I’ve posted at the very bottom.  First, click through till you get to this page:

Give James Choung a listen describing some of the changes we’re experiencing.  Scroll down, click a few links and check out what online ministry is looking like these days.  You might find something helpful for your ministry context.  On this painful shared journey of corona shutting things down, life IS still opening up for people willing to carve out some new patterns.  Are you one of those people re-inventing a new normal?  InterVarsity staff, students and faculty are.  Pray for us and join us as we beat this bug back into the corner and press forward into the kingdom of Jesus!  When pathogens go viral, we go virtual!
