Resources to help your team transition from in-person women's ministry to virtual women's ministry.

Transitioning from an in-person women’s ministry to virtual women’s ministry and back is something that most of us have never imagined would be needed.

While we may be tempted to take a ministry sabbatical, our women need support, encouragement, and connection now more than ever before.

The path forward for most of us will be challenging, but not impossible.

We can use the internet and other online tools to point our women to Christ during this discouraging time.

Not every post will be applicable to the women in your church. Read through and ask the Lord for wisdom to help your team determine which tools will best serve your women in the days and weeks to come.

I’ve organized the posts in categories:

  • Transitioning Back
  • Online Bible Study, Events, and Meetings
  • Social Media and Email
  • Virtual Activities and Fun
  • Maintaining Your Virtual Ministry

As you begin to formulate a virtual women’s ministry plan, I suggest you start with the post 3 Keys to Virtual Women’s Ministry.
