20 Years ago today, FaithTree.com launched as the world’s first (and, I think, still only) customizable Christian portal. 🎉 At the time, I didn’t really think about what it would be like if I were still developing it two decades later, but here we are. The original concept for FaithTree was modeled after classic portal sites such as My Yahoo and My Netscape. Over time, it also became a full fledge RSS news feed reader and, later, spun into an outreach ministry, FaithTree Christian Fellowship.
20 years is too big of deal to let go by without a major celebration, don’t you think?
This month I’ve been adding new features to celebrate this special milestone, starting a few weeks ago with the all new FaithTree WeatherDesk, with free forecasts all around the world and the unique “Weather in the Bible” feature that shows you a verse that ties into your current weather.
I have a few more planned in the coming days of celebration, but one I cannot wait to share with you launches RIGHT NOW on the anniversary day itself: FaithTree Grow.
FaithTree Grow brings together sermons, devotionals and articles from friends of FaithTree (including Bible Baptist Church, Little Hills Church and Harvester Christian Church) alongside FaithTree’s Bible search tool that lets you explore God’s Word and find messages related to the passages you look up. I hope you take a look and that this new feature blesses you as you explore how God is speaking through believers around our community!
