They say necessity is the mother of all invention. NZCN was recently contacted Prison Fellowship NZ’s Wellington office and asked if there was anything we could do to help promote their annual Angel Tree appeal because their usual source for advertising no longer existed.
Coincidence? In addition to my work at NZCN, I am also a regular volunteer on a Prison Fellowship team, friends of mine have run Angel Tree in their church for the past couple of years and NZCN shares office space with PFNZ in Auckland. Needless to say I was motivated to see what I could do to help.
A key word in NZCN’s name is Network. It resonates with me and it’s easy to see why.
One of the pages on the old site we wish to re-instate is a list that links to all of the networks and ministries that are connected to NZCN. However, the necessity for ministries and networks to let other people know about their activities has made us re-think how to present that information – which is how the idea of Spotlight came into being.
Basically, any national network, ministry or public cause that the church is able to engage in will be considered to feature in a spotlight. The purpose is to inform about activities and projects that we can make a difference in and to help equip these projects through a variety of resources.
Spotlight is an interactive facility to inform Christians about a variety of national projects, ministries and networks through links, videos, graphics, photos etc.
Contributors are encouraged to provide the information required to put together each spotlight page. We would like to take Spotlight further by integrating prayer request in the features because that is one way we can all be involved.
Best to take a look at one and see for yourself. Spotlight on PFNZ’s Angel Tree
All the information will be presented on our website, so you will find links to the spotlights in NZCN | News, our Facebook page and tweets on Twitter so make sure you are signed up to follow us!
On the website, the most recent spotlights will feature on the rotating banner on the home page, but if you want to go back and look at previous spotlights, you can find them through the top menu under Articles > Spotlight. Spotlights will also be cross-linked with the Networks once their links are re-instated. Additionally, there is the search function available in the upper right corner of the site.
Whenever possible, Spotlights will be posted at times that are relevant to what is being promoted – either because of project timing or events in the calendar that correspond with the network/ministry.
Spotlight provides the opportunity to hear about something when it is particularly relevant. Once it is up and in full swing, NZCN will be the central hub informing the church about a variety of initiatives it can get involved in.
