It was a little surreal.
The same day I learned that I was acquiring ChurchMag, my wife and I drove by a store that had a sign hanging in the window that read, “Under New Management.”
As the new owner of ChurchMag, I would like to announce to you:
ChurchMag is under new management.
ChurchMag Has Been Acquired
ChurchMag has been on an awesome journey so far. Started by John Saddington, ChurchCrunch was first launched in 2008 and later transformed into The 8BIT Network. The 8BIT Network was a combination of six different blogs (ChurchCrunch, ChurchCreate, ChurchIT, ChurchDrop, ChurchCode and ChurchCMS) which were combined into ChurchMag in May of 2011. During this journey over the past five years, over 10,800 posts have published along with over 58,575 comments. ChurchMag wouldn’t be where it is today if it wasn’t for the stellar community surrounding it.
- ChurchMag will continue to explore the intersection of Church and technology.
- ChurchMag will continue to mix serious discussions and helpful information with lots of fun on the side.
- ChurchMag will continue to be awesome.
The goal of ChurchMag remains the same:
Be the #1 source for everything Church and technology.
ChurchMag will remain insanely-interested in exploring how the Church, ministries, and non-profits use technology to effectively fulfill their mission to the world, as well as how we all personally interact with the ever changing and challenging aspects that technology brings into our lives.
Since my first blog post here over two years ago, I have written thousands of posts, been a part of the best community on the Internet, and worked as Editor of, what I think, is one of the finest online publications focusing on Church and technology.
It’s such an honor to be the new owner of ChurchMag.
I am excited to see where we are going to take it together.
