Thanks to Clover, faithHighway, Integrity Music and Wix

October 1, 2009 by

We need to give a big shout out of thanks to our current CFCC Ad Network members:

  • Clover provides affordable web sites for churches.
  • faithHighway helps churches reach their communities with web sites, commercials, online sermon streaming, design services and more.
  • Integrity Music focuses on communicating the gospel through quality worship resources and musicians.
  • Wix offers a free Flash web site builder to add some, well, flash to your church site.

We try to keep the advertising minimal on the site (which is why we only display one ad at a time), but it does help pay the bills. So big thanks to these guys! If your company or organization is looking to reach church communicators, consider the CFCC Ad Network.

    Oh man, Integrity Music and WIX are AWESOME! Integrity has sheet music for everything, including horn sections — their song licensing is great, too.
    WIX is just off the chain. Wish they had a desktop version of their app. I’d pay for it!

    Please stop promoting providors of Flash sites. Flash is a desktop app, not for the web. If you want Flash-like movement, look into jQuery or Moo Tools (both are javascript).

    I DO NOT recommend faithhighway: horrible service and not good for search engines at all.

    Don’t deal with faithhighway! Unless you want to use your money to buy heartache, disappointment, and worst customers service, stay away from these guys. I gave them a job and I regretted it every step of the way. I cannot recommend them to anyone! Take your contract somewhere else.

      Justin,
      Wow! We were surprised to see this comment pop up all of the sudden. We are also very surprised to see your blog of “faithHighway reviews,” which has taken comments completely out of context to propagate your agenda. After our interaction with you in Feb. 2010, we thought, by your apology that you sent us, that we had reconciled. We addressed your issues and you even mentioned it in your apology. We have been in business over 11 years and have successfully helped thousands and thousands of ministries. We know we aren’t perfect, but we also know we aren’t terrible either. We are more than happy to make right, if we have wronged you. Please contact us at feedback@faithhighway.com and we will respond appropriately.
      Here is your response to us (faithHighway) last February.

      To: Greg Johnson

      Dear Greg Johnson,
      I tried to call you and couldn’t get in touch. I wanted to take a moment to write to you. Please ignore any other emails I sent in haste. While the Pastoral team has decided to stand with me on the issues between us and Faithhighway, I want to put the matter to rest. The services gained from your company may not have suited our needs, but I am sure that Faithhighway is exactly what some church wants. We had a breakdown in communication and some of that is due to me. I want you to know that we did not intend on using images that we do not have the rights to. In looking at the email transcript between us, I see where the mix-up occurred. When I asked if it was possible to get our images off our account (meaning our personal pictures), you said no because of copyright (meaning faithhighway’s images). Since I knew that we had the right to our pictures, I dismissed this email. When I realized during the conversation what you meant, I quickly took them down. The pastor, Jackie Bryant, who used to be on staff was also in graphic design and I was not aware that it was not ours. I am glad that faithhighway has also acted on their end by emailing us the files I asked for.

      But this is more than just a business thing. If we were two nonbelievers, the behavior would have been expected. I apologize for how I treated you. Though I believe my complaint could be posted legally and was fairly accurate, I have taken it down in good faith.

      As far as Joe Kennedy, I do not know him personally, believe it or not. He is a friend of a friend and got our story. I asked him to take down the account of what happened. Though he may continue to say stuff about faithhighway, I have backed away from that. I am thankful that it seems he was the cause of helping us both understand what happened with the images when he clarified that we were wanting our personal pictures.

      Again, I am sorry this had to happen. If you happen to be at the NEXT Conference March 1st in Warner Robins, Georgia, maybe I will see you there.

      Your Friend,
      Justin Grice
      Connection Pastor

    Funny faithHighway that you would mention the apology, but not why I had to apologize. You don’t mention faithHighway’s intimidation by “escalating the matter.” I fell for it then, but not now. I believe faithHighway to be an unethical company that uses intimidation to silence their critics.

      Despite our efforts to contact you and address your issues factually (and privately), it is clear that you do not want to come to a public resolution at this point.

        Laura, you said you have an offer of a partial refund. I’ll believe it when I see it.

    As stated in the emails exchanged, we would offer a refund for the requested forms, if we received a request from the pastor of your church. As of now, we have not received that request.

      I am a Pastor at the church as you can see from our church site. We would like the refund.
