Membership Options & Who Runs This Site

We have two levels of membership:  "Registered" and "Supporting."

  Annual Supporting Memberships are $30 now (through 2/28/18) and will be $45 annually after March 1st, 2018. They get you full access to every forum and feature, our enews, plus our amazing Writing Team lesson sets. Supporting Members also get access to a new set of Video resources and outlines we're creating here at Rotation.org.

  Registered Memberships are free, and get you the ability to view all our public forums, post ideas and questions, use certain features, and receive our monthly "what's new" email newsletter. Registered memberships do not include access to the Writing Team lessons.

  Unregistered Visitors can browse the site, but certain features and content are invisible to them.

More about Rotation.org and its Board of Directors

Rotation.org is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation owned and operated by an elected Board of Directors. Founded in 1997, and incorporated in 2005, our site is the product of hundreds of volunteers, teachers, Church educators, writers, and pastors collaborating in an unprecedented way across distance, time, and denominational lines.

The Board of Directors oversees the website and finances. All our Directors are volunteers with the site, and experienced Christian educators and teachers in their own churches. You are welcome to contact them directly.

2017 Board of Directors at rotation.org.

Rotation.org is an independent ministry.

We are not connected to any publisher or denomination. Our only source of income is from individuals and individual churches. 98% of our budget comes from our Supporting Members.

Theologically speaking...

Rotation.org's Board Members, leaders, editorial policies, and content contributors reflect a mainline denominational point of view (Methodist, Presbyterian, etc.). We expect our members to adapt all material from the site to suit their own theological needs.

There is no fee to belong to the Rotation.org community. It's open to all. There is an annual membership you can pay online to gain access to certain extra special content, but the VAST MAJORITY of our lessons, articles and helpful forums are open to everyone free-of-charge.

Who owns the domain name and the materials?

ALL materials at this website belong to the author(s) named with each piece as long as they stay active. Rotation.org reserves the right to modify, move or delete any posted content. Read our Terms of Service for more specifics.

This site and "Rotation.org Inc." are owned by the Board. 

The Cost of Running Our Site

All totaled, it takes about $35,000 a year to operate this site --which is entirely funded by member contributions.

We have three major expenses:

(1) Paying for Social Strata's "Hoop.la" server software - the technical power behind our site. We are committed to creating a state-art-the-art website experience for all users and types of computing devices.

(2) Webmaster services. Daily site monitoring and maintenance. Coding, updates, improvements. Years ago we did this with volunteers, but as the size and complexity of our site has grown, so has our need for technical help.

(3) Editing and Writing Support. Improving existing content and adding new lesson content is a big priority for our Board and Supporting Members.

Unique, non-denominational, volunteer-led..... Rotation.org is not only a great resource, we're demonstrating a new way of supporting and resourcing each other using today's technology with a non-profit strategy that's not hobbled by marketing needs, the limitations of paper publishing, and denominational politics.
