What is The Network?

The Network is a ministry sharing site that was launched in February 2010 to connect people across the CRC to each other. With over 60 different ministry topics to choose from, the site is a gathering place for deacons, Sunday school teachers, worship leaders, pastors and many others to compare notes and share ideas. Since its humble start, The Network has grown to be one of the most popular sites in the CRCNA.

Do I need an account to get started?

An account is not required to read posts or share them on social media. However, creating your own account is highly recommended as this enables you to post comments, get email notifications of new posts or comments, share your own blogs or resources, and connect with your peers. Plus, it’s quick and easy.

How do I create an account?

You may login to The Network  with your existing Facebook, Google or Yahoo account.
