Have you ever thought: “I wonder how other churches do this”? Wouldn't it be great to ask others how they handled a particular ministry situation? 

Today we're annnouncing a new feature of The Network called "Ministry Q&A". Just post your ministry question to tap into the collective knowledge and experience of CRC members across the US and Canada.

Inspired by tools like Yahoo Answers, Quora, and similar sites across the web, we hope this will make it easy to compare notes with each other. Of course, The Network has always had discussion forums where you could post questions. But Ministry Q&A makes it easier and more focused on the practical aspects of ministry.

Here's how it works...


Ask your ministry question by entering it in the Ministry Q&A box located on the right side of most Network pages (or on the main Ministry Q&A page).

When you submit your question, the system will check if your question has already been asked. If not, continue by choosing the topic your question best fits and adding a little more detail about your question.


You can browse questions others have posted and share your experience by posting an 'answer'.

To view the latest questions, just click "Answer" on the Ministry Q&A box in the sidebar. Or visit the Ministry Q&A page to see  an expanded view of all questions, the ministry area each was posted to, and how many responses have been posted.

Every question is cross-posted into the appropriate discussion forum with a special "Q&A" label. So if you've subscribed to receive new posts in a particular discussion forum don't worry, you'll still get an email when a new question is added.

Whether your question is about budgets, community engagement, worship, church order, or another ministry area, our new Ministry Q&A feature can help you tap into the wisdom of the crowds and connect with others in ministry.

Try it out -  ask (or answer) a question right now.


I'm very glad to see this new page added to the website. I think it's a great idea and I hope many folks use it to share good ideas/resources and to get answers to questions they may have. By helping each other, we'll all grow stronger and better able to do the work of the church.
