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.
There's a way volunteer and staff ministry leaders can connect with each other to compare notes, encourage each other, and talk about the nuts and bolts of various church ministries. In this webinar we'll take a tour of the site and look at examples of the connections being made.
The Network launched on February 8, 2010. Since then, it has grown to become one of the CRC's most-visited, most-read, and most-interacted-with sites.To celebrate our second anniversary, we’re announcing two fun contests (with prizes!):
Are you a church member who is willing to share your experience and enthusiasm for ministry? If so, we should talk. The Network is recruiting new guides. We're always on the lookout for good people who are willing to share some of what they've learned and experienced. Interested?
It's the giving season. You’ll be buying presents for folks you love, perhaps giving a tip to your newspaper carrier or even baking cookies to spread some good will (and the calories) around. How about giving some Christmas “cheer” (translate that as “encouragement”) to your favorite
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.
Since The Network launched 603 days ago new networks have been launched, new features have been added, new guides have been introduced, and new design changes have been made. So we've created this News & Support blog as a place to let you, The Network community, know about the latest news, features, and highlights on The Network.
Today I retire.So I’d like to say a thing or two about this venture, The Network, and give you an opportunity to weigh in on its future. We launched The Network on February, 2010, not knowing exactly what to expect. We’ve watched it grow during each one of these last 18 months.

In my experience as an elder, not many of our members are aware of denominational agencies and activities. I think it may be necessary for someone to visit the churches and/or church meetings such as congregational and classis meetings and talk about The Network.
