2015 is winding down and here at Servants of Grace, we’ve been hard at work planning our content for the next year for the past several months. Before I go into what you can expect for next year, I want to thank each of you who read our articles, listen to our podcast, sermons, and share our content on your social media channels. This past year we experienced a tremendous amount of growth across our social media channels and on our website. We give the Lord all praise, honor, and glory for what He has done this past year and for what He will do in 2016.
The following list of numbers represents real people who have visited our site and enjoyed our content. We give praise to God for how He continues to use this ministry for His glory in the life of His people. Traffic wise we grew from 6705 unique visitors (94,092 total) from 2014, 71,220 more visitors (350,456 this year), 1,281,553 more page views than last year (3,896,673 page views this year), 1,826,386 (6,412,274 hits this year), and 55.88 more bandwidth used this year (150.23 GB’s used this year). Top countries that visited our site in the past year: USA, France, Ukraine, Russia, Slovak Republic, China, and Canada.
This past year, we continued on with Theology for Life Magazine. The magazine experienced a great deal of growth with our issue on Heaven and Hell garnering over 10 thousand downloads. Theology for Life in 2016 will look at the following issues. In March, we’ll look at the doctrines of grace and some issues in Reformed theology and practice. June 2016 issue will be on pornography and sex trafficking. In October, we will explore the historicity of Adam. Finally, our December issue will look at persecution. We are very excited about the great content that will come out as a result of these issues and look forward to hearing from you how the Lord has used them in your lives and ministries. Our next issue on adoption and abortion will be released very soon.
This next year at Servants of Grace, we are committing to providing more content aimed at helping ministry leaders and pastors. If you are a pastor or ministry leader, we want to hear from you! Please go to our guest submission page and send us your article idea!
Our present series on the Sermon on the Mount will end sometime in January. After that series, we will look at the book of Esther and Ruth. After our Esther and Ruth series, we will look at the Ten Commandments. We are still hard at work coming up with future series. If you have suggestions on topics you’d like to see covered, we would love to hear from you. Our podcast will be resuming soon but before it does, we would love to hear from you on topics you would love to see covered.
If you’ve been to our site before you might notice that it is completely redesigned. Over the past week or so, I’ve been hard at work redesigning the look, feel, navigation, and experience of visitors to our site. I’ve completely redone the pages on the site to make them a lot easier to use. I trust that your experience on our site will be easier to use and easier to read!
I want to thank you, dear readers, for your support and prayers for this ministry over the past year. I’m very excited to see what the Lord will do in 2016. Please continue to pray for us as we seek to make much of Christ, resource the local church, and equip the people of God to know and serve the Lord. To that end, we encourage you to please continue to tell your friends about us and share our content. We are very excited for 2016 and look forward to sharing and serving Christ with you.
In Christ Alone,
Executive Director, Servants of Grace Ministries
