One Login, Many Sites

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of creating new accounts on various websites - often with different password criteria for each. So as far as CRC-related websites go, we’re trying to make things a little easier.

Webinar Voting = No More Guesswork

In January we launched another way to connect with others about ministry - live webinars! It's off to a great start. But there's one problem...it's really tough deciding what topics to include. So today we're eliminating the guesswork and letting YOU help us decide.

New Comment Guidelines

We've introduced new comment guidelines for The Network. The best thing about our comment guidelines is how seldom we’ve had to enforce them. Members of The Network community tend to be a helpful bunch who come here to equip and encourage each other for ministry, not to pick a fight.
