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.
