    Would You Join a Christian Social Network?

    HeavenUp.com is a Christian social network that is similar to Facebook or LinkedIn, but is a community for those seeking a relationship with God. It’s an online network where you can meet and connect with other people, friends, family and ministries.

    The difference between HeavenUp and, let’s say, Facebook, is that you can connect with missions, be linked to Christ-centered causes, churches, pastors and worship leaders. The other significant difference is that it’s a more specific way of communicating through media and filters what you may need in relationship with other believers.

    Chris Burkhart, one of the founders, was interviewed recently about the idea and vision behind HeavenUp, and he mentioned the term “virtual fellowship.” He said:

    ‘Virtual fellowship’ is the ability to connect and foster relationships with other Christians that you normally wouldn’t have contact with. This idea extends itself to your church, organization, your ministry and any Christian community that communicates regularly. Christians from all across the world can meet, share ideas and stay connected. I mean, it’s the power of what we’re all called to be, one body of Christ” (beliefnet.com)

    The other awesome feature on this Christian site is that worship leaders, artists and musicians can upload their music, similar to a MySpace platform, where viewers and members can listen to new music and Christian worship. The great thing about this as a Christian artist is that it’s literally geared to your audience and the body of Christ. I personally love this as an artist and worship leader! Check out my site on HeavenUp.com and see my music updates and videos as well!

    Members of HeavenUp can also upload videos, photos and, of course, updates on their page. You can uniquely create your page and edit other information as well. The site is a very refined Facebook where you can easily find others living and pursuing the same things as a believer, and possibly can be connected to those you would have not yet met in ministry or missions.

    There are sections for videos, causes (where you can create a cause), music (where you can stream artists and bands) and different resources (website links available) where you can get information pertaining to different struggles or questions in your faith, such as “Becoming a Christian,” “Grief Support,” “Youth Ministries” and more.

    Recently, I was interviewed at HeavenUp headquarters and was asked to share about my music, ministry and personal testimony.

    Watch my interview:

    The founders, Chris Burkhart and Wes McKinsey (who both grew up as sons of pastors), said:

    Our goal and prayer is for God to use the HeavenUp platform to help unify the body of Christ. To enhance user experience, we have dedicated ourselves to creating the most comprehensive, feature-rich social site using the most advanced technology available. We have surrendered this site to God and we are excited to see how God will use this ministry.”

    PI Girls, would you join a Christian social network? What do you think of HeavenUp?
