We are rolling out two experiences in January that are targeted at different crowds.
One is basically what you have come to expect from an internet campus, essentially a live stream of our Sunday morning experience. This is targeted at people looking for a church experience on the web.
The other experience is our big focus and will consume the bulk of our energies. This second experience is targeted at unchurched people and will look nothing like church.
The Internet Campus, like our physical Campuses, needs to be financially self reliant at three years. At one of our brainstorming sessions a couple weeks ago, the thought of running ads on some of our sites came up. We haven’t made any decision on it yet, it’s just a thought, so I thought I would engage the ChurchCrunch community on this one.
How could ads be used to support ministry oriented web space and still stay on mission, if at all?
