The MailChimp Newsletter for Ministry

MailChimp is a great newsletter-maker program that is great for ministry purposes.  Here’s why I think it is a good fit:

1. Very user-friendly.  They give you lots of pre-made templates for newsletters.  It works for amateurs or pros at web knowledge.

2. Very affordable.  As in “free” (for up to 12,000 e-mail “sends” a month with less than 2,000 e-mails on your list).  Above that, the rates are pretty good.

3. Very organized.  They have lots of tutorials and plain-English ways of explaining the entire process of making and sending out great newsletters.

I just put out my 5th newsletter today.  Check it out as a sample and let me know what you think.
