Network Changes?

Just noticed on the BOT report about the changes to the network, that it will no longer be run as a seperate entity...how does this affect how things will be run, posted, etc...I have enjoyed it and want it to continue.  I appreciate all the work the various forum leaders and website coordinators have put into it.

The Network has been both a website and an organizational entity that housed ministries such as SPE, SCE and ServiceLink, and also developed a number of new initiatives. The Network website has always been a partnership with CRC Communications. (In fact, that’s where the concept for the website originated.)

Based on the review team’s report, the Board of Trustees endorsed moving responsibility for the website to CRC Communications. For those involved in The Network site, the transition will be seamless, since the same people are involved and the mission is the same: to connect churches for ministry.

The review team was extremely positive about The Network website, commenting that: “The Network Online has become a dominant denominational communication and interactive web platform. We base this observation on traffic comparisons as well as the numerous testimonies and anecdotes we heard during our interviews and research.”

Its report also noted: “We see The Network Online as one of the great successes of this initiative. It has been a significant advance in providing a single interface for mutual learning and resourcing congregations....”

So, no, The Network is not going to change. In fact, I hope this gives the site a boost and gets more church members coming here to connect about the nuts and bolts of ministry.

This is all good news to me. I agree with the assessment of the team. This is an essential tool for the denomination and I trust it will only get better. Keep up the good work. pvk
