Today we hope to go live with the church network.  I am so excited that resources for church administrators will now be shared among churches! I know you have so many more resources out there and I can't wait to see them.  Remember, God is interested in the process, not the end product.  My prayer is that God will be glorified in this process of educating and equipping each other in this ministry area.
