The unexpected rise of COVID-19 impacted our world in unanticipated ways. The pandemic presented many challenges for church plants and planters as well. While the closing of schools and theaters — where many churches meet — was an unforeseen obstacle, flexible planters and their teams worked tirelessly to find different ways to connect with their growing flocks and continue the work of what it means to be the church. Nearly all of these churches have found some place to land when some semblance of normality returns.
