CSBC staff work from home as coronavirus infections rise in Fresno County

Published Dec 04, 2020

California Southern Baptist Convention staff are working from home until January 4, 2021 as the coronavirus cases and hospitalizations rise in Fresno County.

Bill Agee, CSBC executive director, noted that CSBC staff are working as needed to ensure essential business functions are fulfilled during this time. “I want to assure our churches that the CSBC staff, although working from home, will continue their ministry to serve churches.”

He said the coronavirus (COVID-19) “continues to impact our agenda and how we (CSBC staff and churches) do ministry. As the virus has ramped up throughout our state, and in Fresno County, we find exposure closer than ever before and believe it prudent to err on the side of caution. We are asking our staff to work from home until the Christmas holiday (December 23-31).”

CSBC staff is scheduled to resume work in the office on January 4, 2021, but Agee said the “executive staff would monitor the indicators to see exactly when staff would return. Nevertheless, CSBC is committed to serving its churches during the pandemic, whether working from home or in the office.”

Agee noted, “Those needing to contact CSBC staff should do so through regular office channels – phone and email. Contact information for all CSBC personnel is available on the CSBC website. Many staff members have forwarded calls to their cell phones. Staff members are checking voicemail and email periodically throughout the day.
