The Cost of Running Our Site

All totaled, it takes about $45,000 a year to operate This is entirely funded by supporting memberships and special gifts from members and their churches.

We have three major expenses:

(1) Paying for our platform hosting. We use Social Strata's "Crowdstack" (aka "") state-of-the-art community software. It's not cheap, but its a great tool for sharing.

(2) Webmaster services. Daily site monitoring and maintenance, graphics, coding, content updates and creation, and organizational improvements. Years ago we did this with volunteers, but as the size and complexity of our site continues to grow, so have our technical needs.

(3) Editing, Resource creation, and Writing Team Support. Improving existing content and adding new lesson content is a big priority for our Board and Supporting Members. Our Writing Team volunteers are trained by and write with our Lesson Writer to produce amazing stuff! A resource ministry like no other

Unique, non-denominational, volunteer-led..... is not only a great resource, we're also 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.
