Seacoast Church in South Carolina is adopting an open-source policy for their resources and making them available online. Seacoast All Access is where you can get messages, bulletin covers, e-vites, video and more.

    The site looks very similar in style to the Vine Resources site and I can’t really make out the words in the navigation menu…

    now that is really cool and how it should be. i don’t like it how some churches use their worship resources to make money, it’s corrupt. i kinda think that if the donations model works for a lot of open source stuff in the secular, then surely it should work in the christian world of conscience.
    why should poor people miss out on quality resources? everything on my site is free…sure there’s not a great variety but hey, it feels the right thing to do.

    Kevin – thanks for the plug! I just wanted to say that we certainly see no problem with people charging for their resources, in fact some of our friends do…as we examined the amount of time that managing a fee model site and our culture here at Seacoast we knew that this was the way to go. Our site was definetly influenced by the vine – open source at its best :)
    We dont have a lot up on the site yet, but will be adding weekly…hope it helps other churches reach more people for Christ!

    Very cool. I’ve been thinking about something like this for a while — does anyone know of a depository for all sorts of free media for churches to grab? It would be even nicer to have a forum where people could get help in designing (and marketing) their media products. Hmmmmm.
