Welcome! Part 1: First Steps

If you’re reading this, you’ve successfully accessed the official CFC-Youth Canada website! Whether you’re coming from the west coast, east coast, anywhere in between, or even internationally, we want to extend to you a very, very cordial welcome. We hope that you enjoy your stay (and subsequent visits!) and pray that the Lord speaks to you in the reflections, media, shares, or anything else that He may work through.

This post, a part of the Welcome! series, will help you get acquainted with the website and much of what it has to offer. Open up a second browser window and we’ll walk you through the new website.

If you look at our homepage you’ll find a navigation bar, Conference banners, the three most recent posts, a featured video and poster, as well as widgets for our Twitter account, Facebook account, Instagram account, and an assortment of links. Sound good so far? Let’s continue!

If you look at the next link in the navigation bar, it says “TNC 2013”. What could that be? That’ll be part two in the Welcome! series so stay tuned!

The next link in the navigation bar is the blog: if you’re familiar with the True North Missionaries blog, curated and written by our Canadian Mission Volunteers and Full-Time Pastoral Workers, or Pacific Region’s blog , Obey and Witness, you’ll find this very similar. As the blog fills up, you’ll be able to sort and find by region, author, subject, program, advocacy, or pretty much anything that can be tagged. Check in on it often to see how our brothers and sisters across the country are moved by the Spirit as they write, reflect, share, and simply proclaim the Gospel in each event.

Following the blog are two links: one for programs and the other for advocacies. If you ever wanted to find out what a certain aspect of the community was, this is the place to find all the information and contact methods. Have a friend curious about the community? This is a great place to start them off!

After programs and advocacies is the Social Hub. Wonder what that could be? Come check out part three in the Welcome! series to find out!

The last three links in the navigation bar; events, about, and contact; are where you can find more information. Wondering what’s coming up in your area or region? Check out “events”. Looking to learn more about CFC-Youth and the Family Ministries? We’ve got that under “about”. Have questions or concerns? You can fill out a message form on the “contact” page.

Finally, right about the contact link in the navigation bar are links to our social media accounts. From left to right they are Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and an RSS feed.

That’s it for the first part of our Welcome! series. Get to know the website because it’ll be a major base of operations, so to speak, for us online in this mission area that is the Internet.

On behalf of my counterpart–Annie Au from Mountain Region–and I, my name is John Ray Catingub from Pacific Region and we remain sincerely yours in Christ, the National Press Heads.

God bless!
