During the COVID-19 pandemic, many small Black congregations struggled with using technology to remain connected to their communities. From the lack of volunteers to the equipment cost, many pastors and ministry leaders experienced several challenges staying connected to their congregants as the physical church doors closed. To help small congregations transition from public worship to a primarily online ministry, I developed virtual ministry models to help churches quickly pivot their operations to a digital format. This paper highlights the models and shares best practices for implementing virtual-only and hybrid ministry styles. It also provides resources and recommendations on maintaining the models in post COVID-19 ministry settings.
