2020 Bulletin of Reports: South Bay Conference

These past 9 months have provided churches in the South Bay and other conferences with countless challenges and opportunities for ministry. As the old saying goes, when someone gives you lemons are you going to make lemonade? In observing the ministry that has been transpiring since the outbreak of Covid-19, congregations in the South Bay have been making a lot of lemonade. Covid-19 has enabled many of the varied ministries to be transformed by social media, video platforms and communication channels that they may not have voluntarily explored prior to the pandemic. Though we have faced new challenges to our ministry and put in countless hours attempting to keep up with the demand, I believe that all of our ministries will be bolstered by the use of these technologies as well serve as a transformational backdrop to how we as the church will do ministry in the years to come.

Below is a breakdown of what technologies the churches are using to proclaim the Gospel message to their congregants and friends of their ministries:
