DENVER, Colo., August 6, 2014 — Finding just the right faith-enriching information can be a daunting task. How does one keep up with the latest books, blogs, and music? Find a church in a new area? Discover devotionals that resonate? Locate local serving opportunities? Choose a Christian school?
FaithHappenings.com, launching today, was created to fix that frustration. FaithHappenings.com is a free, online resource for Christians that contains an array of valuable, faith-based content all in one place. This powerful, complete directory is curated and customized to individuals’ unique needs and locations. Site visitors may become members by completing a short survey in order to receive free, tailored emails about their interests.
The site offers a mix of national and local Christian resources including: devotionals for diverse interests; album, video and book releases; targeted, inspirational blogs by renowned Christian authors; concerts; events; serving opportunities; ministry support; a church database; education options and more. Over a year in development, FaithHappenings.com is comprehensive and accurate.
“We will include whatever fits into the soul-, marriage-, family- and church-enriching categories on our site,” said Greg Johnson, founder of the website and president of WordServe Literary Group. “That way, FaithHappenings.com will translate from an online experience to in-person connections to really strengthen people and their faith community.”
The info-packed, area-specific pages make FaithHappenings.com stand apart even more from what is currently available on the Internet. Best described as a "Craigslist for Christians", FaithHappenings.com is divided into over 450 locales nationwide. These sections provide a full roster of hyper-local listings compiled by Area Coordinators who are plugged in to the opportunities in their respective regions.
FaithHappenings.com will launch with 18 Area Coordinators dedicated to these cities and surrounding vicinities: Atlanta, Birmingham, Boston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Eugene, Grand Rapids, Houston, Kansas City, Memphis, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Phoenix, Portland/Vancouver, Richmond, San Diego and Seattle. More areas will be added, with the goal of 200 coordinators in all.
