WEB SITE on Christian Network Groups.com (herein called CNG web site)

Terms and Conditions, general

The CNG web site is intended for the use of its registered members and invited guests.

There is a format where people can form a group and have conversation, encouragement, council, prayer, make plans, etc. They can be private, hidden, or public; closed, open or by an invitation only format. CNG web site administration reserves the right to monitor these groups to make sure the content is edifying, fair, accurate, reasonable, objective and always expressed with grace & humility – comments may be deleted if these terms and conditions are violated.

The CNG web site is not intended to be exclusive to any one particular group or any one subject. We do want it known that one of the purposes of the CNG web site is to promote Judeo Christian values in work, politics, and the family. Disagreements are welcome but we reserve the right to edit all views for space and content.

Our main focus is to restore the preeminence of Jesus Christ in business. However, it’s not limited to that area alone. Good people of various viewpoints can disagree and we welcome all opinions. People of good will can come from all different backgrounds and beliefs and we will not dismiss those various views from having their say without cause. We believe prayer is vital and foremost in the day to day operations of CNG web site. Hence we have a section just for that purpose. Finally, CNG web site wants to be at the forefront of distributing solid information and referrals to those who have wants or needs in this world we live in, be it spiritual, practical, or necessary. We therefore reach out to all people of character and integrity to participate with us in this endeavor.

Businesses can be posted for a monthly fee – please see the Terms & Conditions for posting a business below:

Terms & Conditions for posting a business on Christian Network Groups (herein called CNG web site).

Every business is subject to an interview with Howard & Debbie Oakes. If the Advisory Board approves you and your business, then the following will apply:

There will be a monthly cost to have your business on the CNG web site. There is a basic listing as well as additional items that will increase your exposure on the web site for an additional amount of money. Some of those are more listings of categories or pop ups which list your business name.

We will have agreements with some of the high end businesses when they make a sale that then they will pay us a marketing fee in additional to the smaller monthly fee.

The CNG web site will have a link to it from the RCF (Refuge Church Family e-bulletin) that goes out to 560 people 12 times a month. Some businesses that are posted on the RCF will also link to more information that will direct traffic to the CNG web site.

Because we receive calls and emails from people on a regular basis asking for information about a business that was posted on the RCF in the past, we see the need for people to be able to find this information on a 24/7 basis. Now they can go and find the business and see others that are available as well.
