How do I list my business and/or service with you?

Just give us a call or email us from the "Contact Us" page on this site and someone from your area will contact you as soon as possible to discuss different options.

how much

How much does it cost to list my church or ministry?

We list all Christian churches in our Church Guide free of charge in the business section (We do NOT sell any display ads to churches … we don‘t believe pitting churches against each other for ad space honors God). We also give any “Christian” Non-Profit organization a free ad to share about their ministry.

what if

What if a company that advertises with you does not live up to the "Profession of Faith" and "Business Ethics Agreement" that they signed?

We appreciate you letting us know, either by phone or email, of any unacceptable work or behavior you have witnessed. We take this very seriously and will investigate any and all responses we receive to determine what action needs to be taken. We will take your experience into consideration when renewing them the following year.
 

how

How do I get my own copy of the Referral Guide?

Besides picking up a copy at your local church, which we distribute as many free copies as they want for their members, you can pick up guides at any of the businesses listed as “Pick-Up Points” on the site you are currently on, www.ChristianBusinessOnline.com. They are free and stocked continually throughout the year. You can also call or email us and we will get one to you.

why

Why should I use the Christian Business Referral Network instead of other secular Referral sources?

As Christians, we should all support other Christian businesses. Galatians 6:10 teaches us that "Whenever possible do good to all people, but especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Bottom line….dollars spent with a Christian based business goes back to serving the Lord through tithes, offerings, missions, etc., as well as supporting Christian families with Christian values.

true christians

How do you know that the advertisers are true Christians?

We are the first to admit that a “Profession” of Faith is not the same as a “Possession” of Faith and needless to say, we are NOT the final judge, however, we believe it is our responsibility to do everything we can to ensure that the advertisers in the directory are Christian in Faith. We do ask ALL advertisers to read and sign a "Profession of Faith" and "Business Ethics Agreement" that is printed on page 4 of our Guide and on the "About Us" page on our website. By signing the “Profession of Faith”, the advertiser is making a statement of their Faith, a step that is missing in secular publications….more than just putting a "fish" or a "cross" in their ads.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use the Christian Business Referral Network instead of the “generic” search engines or print?

As Christians, we should all support other Christian businesses. Galatians 6:10 teaches us that “Whenever possible do good to all people, but especially to those in the family of believers.” As far as using the internet to find a Christian based business, the problem with most major search engines, like google, bing, yahoo etc., is that they are not “faith based”.  If you google “Christian Plumber” you’re more likely going to get plumbers named “Christian” or plumbers from Christian county, KY but you’ll have a difficult time finding a faith based Christian plumber on any "secular" search engine.  That’s one reason why we are in print, online and on your phone.  Bottom line….dollars spent with a Christ centered business goes back to serving the Lord through tithes, offerings, missions, etc. as well as supporting Christian families, Christian values and lifestyles.

Frequently Asked Questions

I keep hearing that nobody uses "Print" anymore.  Don’t most people today go to the internet to find what they are looking for?

First of all let me say that that we use various platforms to connect Christian consumers with Christ centered businesses and Print is just one of those platforms.  We are also online just like on the website you’re looking at now, as well as on your phone with our “search engine” platform which allows you to search whatever your looking for directly from your phone or computer.  As far as print directories, I’ll be the first to admit that “generic” print directories are on a steep decline, HOWEVER, specialty directories, like “The Christian Business Referral Guide” are going stronger than ever.  As far as using the internet to find a Christian based business, the problem with most search engines, like google, bing, yahoo etc., is that they are not “faith based”.  If you google “Christian Plumber” you’re more likely going to get plumbers named “Christian” or plumbers from Christian, KY but you’ll have a difficult time finding a faith based Christian plumber on any "secular" search engine.  That’s one reason why we are in print along with online as well as on your phone.  But another reason we continue to publish "print" is because we don't want to ostracize any Christian group or sector based primarly on age like other companies do.  We believe we should offer our service to ALL age groups...not just millennials.  In other words, we want Christian consumers to find the Christian business they are looking for no matter what advertising platform they use.
