Dear Innovate For Jesus blog readers, a very happy New Year to you and your family!
You may have already seen our Starbucks giveaway drawing but we wanted to give you one more opportunity to enter to win and help us shape the future of Innovate For Jesus.
Thank you so much for your support as we’ve grown over the past few years. Whether you’re in ministry fulltime or you serve your church through volunteering or in other ways, you are a blessing to the Kingdom and we want to help support you and your church in any way we can. As our readers, we wanted to get your opinions on how we can better support you, as well as let you know about some of the changes that will kick off in early 2016.
Please Help I4J Serve You Better (And let us buy you coffee!)
In order to help you help us, we’ve created a simple survey we’ll use to tailor our content and better serve you, our readers. As a thank you for filling out the survey, each person who fills out the survey will receive free I4J membership for a year (more later on what that includes). And as a special bonus we’ll draw two people at random to win a $25 gift card to Starbucks — and don’t worry, if you want to wait until after the red cups are packed away again, feel free. :)
Exciting Changes at I4J
We (Corrin and Lydia) joined founder Justin Blaney at Innovate For Jesus back in early 2014, and a couple months ago we both officially joined on as co-directors of I4J. We’re excited to take the reigns of creative direction and have a lot of ideas for how to serve our community better.
Here are some of the new things we’ll be working on:
Starting in January, we’ll start featuring more original content from contributors you already know and love, plus some you don’t know yet, based on monthly themes. We’ll then take those original posts and turn them into eBooks.
Our weekly live show #I4JLIVE will still happen Thursdays but we’ll be turning the episodes to a weekly podcast, which will be easier to listen to on the go!
Starting in January, we’ll start our new I4J memberships, which will include a monthly newsletter with freebies, discounts, exclusive offers, and more.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about what’s coming up. Join us as we start this new chapter helping churches grow and innovate for Jesus together.
