A Resource Center for Your Church
In these ever-changing and unsure times, all of us are receiving an overwhelming amount of emails and notifications about the current COVID-19 crisis. Resources are ubiquitous, but how can anyone know which are the most helpful? Our desire as a conference of churches is simply to curate a space with resources for you and your church that have been helpful to other NAB leaders like yourself.
We have not created all of these resources, but they have come to us recommended by trusted members of the NAB family like you and from those of us from the International Office. Our desire is simply to curate a space together of all of the resources being found by those all across the NAB and collect the best of it for our collective benefit.
Use them, but equally important, please submit some of the resources that have been helpful in your church so we can share them with the rest of the conference.
