  323 views

The Network launched on February 8, 2010. Since then, it has grown to become one of the CRC's most-visited, most-read, and most-interacted-with sites.

To celebrate our second anniversary, we’re announcing two fun contests (with prizes!):

Community Builder Contest

Have you achieved ‘Community Builder’ status here on The Network? To check, view your profile progress. If you’re at 100%, you’re a Community Builder. If not, just click the remaining steps to finish it off.

On March 8, we’ll randomly select three Community Builders to win prizes (details below). And even if you don’t win, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing your helping to build the Network community. Plus you’ll have the ultra-cool Community Builder badge automatically added to your profile.

Guest Blog Contest

How many times have you read a blog here on The Network or elsewhere and had the thought, “I could do that.” Well, here’s your chance, we are looking for guest blogs.

A good blog is informative, engaging, and challenging. We are looking for blogs that provoke discussion and invite the reader to respond and comment. You can blog about any of the over 50 ministry topics that The Network covers. So, if you have a passion for one of these area of ministry, submit a blog by March 7 and share your knowledge and experience on The Network.

Guest blogs will be reviewed by Network staff who will determine three winning guest blogs (details below).
