Email isn’t cheap. Trust me I know. So how do we change that for churches? Simple. Make it free.
FlockHosting is doing it again, I have been slowly building up plans, but more often than not folks come looking for Email for their church, but already have a site hosted, just the platform does not have email services. Sound familiar?
Great website builders out there offer some great looks for websites, however their suggestion is $50/yr or more email providers, not a good fit for everyone when you have 10 deacons, 12 sunday school workers, 5 prayer team members, 2 pastors and well let’s not forget the janitor. 30 email accounts at $50/yr? $1,500 is a nice upgrade to the sound system! Or maybe a kid to summer camp?
With the same thought process & goal as Church Hosting this is a standalone product, no more signing up to sneak in under the radar, save us both resources, if you need only email, this is the service for you.
Not sure why? Not sure if it’s really free? There are a number of Frequently Asked Questions on the Church Hosting page which line up perfectly for this – and since you already have a domain and only need email – no domain costs to worry about, just choose the option that says you’ll update your domain!
SPECIAL NOTE: This is in Beta Testing at the moment – Email will always work and won’t be tweaked, but services like New Webmail Clients, Filtering Options, etc. may come and go, but always give your feedback if you like/want something!
