There’s a Big Team of People Behind The Network
The day-to-day tasks of The Network are managed by one half-time position. There is a small steering team that meets monthly to provide input, address questions, and plan for the future.
You Need to Be an Excellent Writer to Post
The primary purpose of The Network is to connect people around local church ministry. This means the only criteria for getting involved is a passion for serving in your local church. So please, please post your questions, your stories, and your resources. And don’t let the fear of grammatical errors stop you!
You Need to Belong to the CRC to Join
Though The Network is a ministry sharing blog of the Christian Reformed Church, you do not need to belong to a CRC to create an account or get involved.
