Our sincere appreciation goes out to all who serve in the churches in North America and around the world. You’re the reason that The Network was created!
Now can 'subscribe' to anyone who posts on The Network.
Now when you visit a section, you'll see photos of the five people who most recently added a comment or a new post.
It’s been great to see all the new blogs, articles and resources getting added on the Network each day. Some of you may be holding back because you’ve got questions like:
"How can I tell if what I wrote is a Discussion Topic or a Blog?"
Because we know it can be intimidating to try new things (even more so if the results will be published on the Internet) we created two short tutorials that demonstrate the simple steps of starting a new post.
Here are two short videos to orient you to the Network content form. We hope they’ll help you post your Blog, Discussion Topic, Resource and/or ministry Q&A.
Join the topics that interest you. It's a great way to build community and get email alerts of new posts in that section.

Last year we compiled a list of favorite webinars and decided to do it again this year with a slightly different twist using several measures such as attendance, likelihood to recommend to others, survey scores, etc. Here are the results...
Top 2013 blog posts on The Network include one on how much we should give to support our church, the love/hate relationship many of us have with the church bulletin, and what roles do pastors, elders and deacons play.
The Voice is a popular reality TV singing competition. The Network also is looking for its next voice. In fact we’re looking for our next three voices. Don’t worry, you don’t have to sing, but we do want to hear what you have to say.
Recently, we invited some of our guest bloggers and former guides to take on a new role on The Network. And today we’re excited to announce a new lineup of “Special Contributors.” They’re like columnists, without the column and without the big bucks.

Maybe your small group is meeting for the first time or you’ll be convening your first meeting as the new chair of the deacons.

We’ve randomly selected three winners from all those who commented in March. They made it look easy - and it is!
