Pastors Should Connect More Closely with Believers When Only Online Services are Possible

Although we accumulated some online service experience last year, there are still lots to improve. Pastors should also build tight bonds with church deacons because pastoring a church cannot be accomplished by the pastor alone. Pastors should try to care about any difficulties or unhappiness in believers' lives and pay more attention to their problems to see if they could offer any help to tackle their challenges.
