This week we’re glad to welcome Jolanda Howe to a new role with The Network.
As you may have noticed, things look pretty different around here! Our site upgrade has been months in the making, and we’re thrilled to finally unveil it.
In the next few weeks, we’ll be launching a major upgrade to the Network site (to coincide with our 4th anniversary). After keeping it under wraps, I’m really excited to finally be able to tell you about it.
We’re excited to announce two new open forums for churches. ‘Church Jobs’ is where you can post an opening for a pastor or other staff position in your church. ‘Church Exchange’ can be used to trade, give away, or sell things your church is no longer using.
We’re having fun with these recent giveaways. Better yet, they’re giving that extra little boost for people to add comments, ask questions and connect with others about ministry. So here’s another mug giveaway...
We’ve randomly selected three winners from all those who commented in March. They made it look easy - and it is!
What a great response to the “Just Say Hi” challenge. Well over a hundred people joined the quest to get that snazzy Network mug and $25 Amazon gift card. We don’t want the fun to stop, so today we’re launching a new challenge!
Today is the day to move from a reader of this website, into a participant! Because you could win a most coveted prize (or whatever the Reformed way of saying that would be): your very own, shiny-new Network mug. Plus a $25 Amazon gift card to go with it.
Our "Ministry Q&A" tool has grown to over 1,000 posts covering about 270 different ministry questions. That’s a lot of ministry knowledge being shared.
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.
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.
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.
We started this Network website so we could all learn and connect with each other about ministry. Now, we're adding live events! Starting next week, "Webinar Wednesdays" offer a new way to connect in real-time.
When cruising around The Network, have you ever thought: "They should really blog about...."Well now you can use this handy-dandy form to suggest a blog topic for one of our Network sections. We'll make sure it gets to the right guide for their full consideration.
Would you (or someone you know) make a great Network guide?Please let us know!
