This Sounds Too Good...
WHAT EVERYONE ALWAYS ASKS:
This sounds too good to be true... what's the catch? How can you do this with NO funding, NO staffing, NO planning, NO recruiting, NO organizing, NO Church space, and NO time commitments?
There is no catch and there are no strings attached. Everything given is absolutely free. No “credits” or “trades” or “things to do” (like signing up for something or subscribing to this thing or that thing). It really IS that good because depends on the greatness, goodness, and unsurpassed power of the love of Jesus Christ, as He compels people to act in sincere kindness and goodness toward one another.
And how do you get around funding, staffing, planning, etc.? Let’s look at a couple of examples...
Say Jane (from your church) needs a computer, so she goes to to post that need (and list your Church as the affiliated Church, which advertises you!). Then Bill (also from your church) sees her post when he browses the site for listings in your Church or geographic location. It happens he actually can give her a computer. So Bill contacts Jane through the site & makes arrangements so he can give her the needed computer. TA-DA! Need met!
Or let’s say Kelly (from your church) posts that she is giving away free painting and gardening services (also listing & advertising your Church!). Then John (also from your church) browses for listings in your Church or geographic location, and sees that Kelly is able to help him fix up some paint-jobs and gardening at his house. So he gets in touch with Kelly through the site and the two of them make arrangements to get the painting and gardening done. Again...need met!
Or what if your church (or other organization) needs to raise funds for a building project, so one of your representatives posts on that you are in need of financial support. Then people browse the site for listings in your Church or geographic location, see this post, & contact you to contribute funds for your church (or other organization) project. And just like that...AGAIN, TA-DA! Church need met!
It's only a matter of time before people in your Church are meeting each other's needs every week. Soon, relationships are built at an accelerated rate as people reach out and help one another freely, and countless more people are coming to Christ. Then everyone starts to hear about what an amazingly loving group of Christians you guys are, and they're irresistibly attracted to the incredible atmosphere of love & caring for each other found in your ministries. Suddenly you realize that your Church has more explosive growth than you ever thought possible, not just in terms of numbers, but in terms of impacting the community, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, actually loving one another (24/7!), and everything that makes a Church HEALTHY & THRIVING...
Just stop and think about this for a moment. Did you have to use funds to create or use this site? NO. Did you have to get church staff to organize or plan or coordinate meetings between people? NO. Did you have to recruit workers to dispatch items or provide services? NO. Did you have to provide storage/meeting/building space? NO. Did you have to host events? NO. Did you have to make time commitments or schedule meetings? NO. Did you have to do ANYTHING other than encourage people to take advantage of so they can connect with each other and meet needs? NO!
With you don't only "encourage" or "inspire" or "instruct" people to love one another...you EQUIP them to do so in an unlimited way. You give them an actual tool to use. You give them something tangible and practical that can be seen and experienced by everyone in a very real, sincere, and genuine fashion...any time of the day or night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year...
And with 's built-in search engine optimized interface, your Church & ministries get MASSIVELY ADVERTISED & PROMOTED on a global scale 24/7 as you simply obey Jesus Christ's command to love one another! (John 13:34-35)
Do you see how absolutely totally simple and powerful this is?? It’s THE PEOPLE themselves - NOT just church staff or church workers or volunteers - it’s THE PEOPLE (even the “selfish” and “lazy” ones!) who do the funding, staffing, planning, organizing, scheduling, recruiting, hosting, etc. People are already there with their own time, talents, and other UNTAPPED RESOURCES.... and they’re right there sitting in your church & in your meetings, getting together for worship & Bible studies, having fellowship, going on retreats, and so forth. They only need the opportunity to be FULLY EMPOWERED to share the love of Jesus Christ!
They only need the chance to CONNECT DIRECTLY with one another, ON THEIR OWN. And your church, by using as a FREE resource, will be a “point of connection” where all people experience Christian love in a truly sincere, real, and tangible way. Best of all, the kingdom of JESUS CHRIST - not just “a church” - will grow.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: When using , people are always urged to include their church affiliation on the site's search engine optimized interface, so anybody using the site can be aware of which church they represent...this is an easy but powerful & FREE way to advertise your church! The more people use the site and post needs & giveaways that are affiliated with your church, the more your church will get noticed by people EVERYWHERE...
