Partnering with You

Hello OurChurch.Com Webmaster,

One of the sayings we have hear at OurChurch.Com is, "We think of our members more like ministry partners than clients." Because you're our brother or sister in Christ, we care about your church, school, ministry, or business is doing because we know it has an eternal impact.

Even though we think of all of our members as ministry partners, this month we're focusing specifically on our partnership opportunities - our Spread the WWWord! partnership program for individuals and organizations and the new Organization Alliances for associations/denominations.

Learn more about them in this month's newsletter plus check out the funny video, coupon, and hosting special.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO

Problems with Facebook Pages for Churches

As I wrote a couple weeks ago, Facebook has made some big changes to Facebook Pages that will be a game-change for churches. Theoretically anyway.

Facebook claims pages function a lot more like personal profiles now. Most importantly status updates, links, pictures and videos posted to an organization’s page are supposed to show up in the new feed of all that organization’s “fans.” (Ugh! Can’t stand the term “fans.”)

Unfortunately it’s not working out that way for my church’s page.. More...
