New Online Community Brings Christians Together

In today’s society, more people connect through online social networks than by the telephone or in group settings. The I Church Network Team is using that platform to unite Christians, church, schools and organizations with www.ichurchnetwork.com. Their mission is three-fold:

· To provide a way for churches and organizations to communicate with members, donors, and other individuals. Members can learn about events or leave a prayer request.

· To give Christian organizations and businesses a site to sell their goods and services and collect donations and tithes.

· To provide jobs to those who help market the site to Christian organizations in their area.

“This is the first of its kind social movement designed to reach millions of Christians who believe in connecting through faith, while uplifting the spirits of every man and woman,” said Mickey Jones, marketing director. “As a member you will be able to spread the word of God to all your contacts, including your friends and family, while earning extra income.”

Since going live on March 9, more than 240 churches, organizations and individuals have joined. Churches and organizations get a free 30-day trial membership. After the trial, members are charged $19.95 a month. Individual membership is free.

“This is the hottest website I’ve seen on the Internet. I am able to spread the word of Jesus Christ and reach a global network of individuals that I otherwise couldn’t reach using a traditional website approach,” said A. Darville, a U.S. pastor. “The price is phenomenal and provides our ministry with the privacy and safety we are looking for.”

“We expect to see hundreds more sign up in the next few weeks as our affiliates reach out to more churches, Christian schools, vendors and charities,” Jones said. “Our affiliates earn money every time they sign a new organization.”

And in this economy, providing jobs when so many people are out of work may be the biggest mission of all. According to the latest figures from the U.S. Department of Labor, the unemployment rate is 8.1 percent, a number not seen since 1983. More than two million jobs were lost in 2008.

“A lot of people dream of earning money while serving God,” Jones said. “Our dream is to give them that opportunity and to grow a strong online network where we make that happen.”

Registration on www.ichurchnetwork.com is free for individuals. For information on how to get a church or school listed, contact the I Church Network team at: 1-866- 730-5758 or contact Jones at mickey.jones@ichurchnetwork.com
