Mega-church pastor Andy Stanley said the rise in COVID-19 cases has led to the suspension of in-person adult worship services at his North Point Ministries through the rest of the year.
At this point, services will resume in 2021.
“As you imagine, that was not a casual decision,” Stanley said in a video message. In May, North Point Ministries officials announced plans to reopen in early August.
Then, “the COVID numbers were actually moving in the right direction,” said Stanley. “That has changed. Consequently, we cannot guarantee your safety and that is a big part of this decision.”
