While there are probably other benefits to working with a Christian web hosting company, the two that stand out to me are:

1) Shared Mission

I can’t speak for all Christian-led companies, but we at OurChurch.Com view our clients more as ministry partners because when all is said and done, we share the same mission – to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and see His kingdom advanced. Our ultimate goal is not to provide our clients with a service we can provide as profitably as possible, but to help you achieve your God-given mission.

2) Shared Understanding

Again, I can’t speak for other Christian web hosting companies, but every one of the people on our team at OurChurch.Com is a Christ-follower and an active part of a local Christian church. We are a part of Christian schools, para-church ministries, and have led missions trips.  We understand how communications, websites, boards, budgets and approval processes work (and often don’t work :) We can recommend and provide solutions that secular  companies simply don’t get.

What do you think?  Do you think there’s value in working with a Christian organization for your website and web hosting? Why or why not? Are there other benefits you see in it?

Paul Steinbrueck is co-founder and CEO of OurChurch.Com, elder of CypressMeadows.org, husband, father of 3, blogger. You can follow him on Twitter at @PaulSteinbrueck and add him to your circles at Google+ as +Paul Steinbrueck.
