ATLANTA - April 30, 2020 - PRLog -- COVID-19 has closed the doors of churches across America, and sadly, many will not reopen. As millions of people are encouraged to stay home, churches and small businesses are fighting to survive. Statistics prove that our nation's churches were not financially prepared for the economic downturn and they do not have the technocapitalism to thrive in this new 'virtual reality.'

Weeks before COVID-19 struck, Kervance Ross was named the Pastor of Internet and Innovation at one of the country's most notable, prolific, megachurches, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church (https://www.newbirth.org/) in Atlanta, Georgia. Famed Pastor and Leader, Jamal H. Bryant announced this newly created position in December, not knowing it would be the most critical position in the church, and for churches around the world.

"I would not have ever thought that within 60 days of being introduced to the world with a title that made most people scratch their heads on December 31st, that my position would now be the most essential role in church culture," says Pastor Ross.

COVID-19 is hitting churches hard. According to a 2018-2019 National Congregations Study (http://www.soc.duke.edu/natcong/index.html), a third of all congregations do not have any savings. Only 20% of churches were streaming their services online and only 48% had the financial infrastructure to accept donations electronically.  With parishioners facing layoffs and furloughs, churches are seeing a decline in offerings, donations and tithes.  Churches are failing to pay staff, utilities and mortgages. "The reality is that this digital 'shift' has been happening for almost a decade.  Yet, many churches rejected its reality.  Therefore, when doors are closed, because of a pandemic, many of them cannot have 'church,' but with technology everyone can still have a 'worship service' online," adds Ross.

Pastors and church leaders are lining up to consult with Pastor Ross.  His daily calendar is filled with appointments and consultations in trying to help save our nation's churches. His goal is to transform their 'Sunday Morning' experience into digital platforms. "The Internet is no longer an option for churches, It's A NECESSITY!  I am coaching and developing a mindset shift, in ministry, to migrate from what has been comfortable to what is most impactful," says the ordained minister.

Pastor Ross, who is also an entrepreneur, has led his company, KDR Consulting (https://www.kdrconsults.com/) in the areas of marketing, branding and strategic development for more than a decade.
