The Covid-19 pandemic is creating challenges as well as opportunities for our churches, ministries and communities.  BR-KC has been researching and meeting with pastors to find ways to help during this time of change and uncertainty.  We will post links and other documents here that may help you as you work to minister in your churches and communities.

If you are a pastor, we encourage you to join the Facebook group “BRKC Pastors Network” as well as our Text Service (Text BRKC to 33222).
