Christian Video Magazine - FREE
About Christian Video Magazine Christian Video Magazine is the result of several conversations between Steve Hewitt, Editor-in-Chief of Christian Computing Magazine, and George Temple, of SermonSpice. In those conversations they both discovered that they had the same passions to help churches use video to enhance ministry. As a result of those talks, they decided to partner together and create a new publication designed to cover anything and everything related to using video for ministry. Christian Video Magazine was born. The first issue was sent to 100,000 in June 2008.

Hi all! I thought I'd just share an experience I had tonight with
setting up two new items in the "database" part of the yahoo group

I decided to start off the member directory by setting up a database
for it, allowing members to log on and add their own details.

In addition, I started up another database for any broadcasters to
list programs that other stations could air as well.

Since posting that new "our group is growing" e-mail to all the
members with an invitation to them to add their details, it turns out
that many of the members don't know for sure how to log into yahoo to
access the group site! They've been members for years, but it's been
with e-mails going back and forth to their inbox, rather than them
signing into yahoo to actually go into the group site.

Thinking back, it's very understandable how there could be members who
didn't log in to sign up for the group. I've added members by just
typing in their e-mail addresses. It's a learning curve.

Tomorrow I'll send out an e-mail just asking folks to send me their
details, and I'll compile the directory and other database in another
program and e-mail it to those interested.

Hopefully my experience will help with your group too!

Have a great night!
