We are offering a free email account, the Microsoft Office Suite, and 1 TB of online file storage to churches with limited resources.
The 2020 Communications budget includes providing up to twenty-six churches with an email address based on their website address and a license for the Microsoft 365 suite of programs.
Microsoft 365, previously known as Microsoft Office, and Office 365, is the full business suite of computer applications you can install on a computer or access online via a browser. We will set up your email account and then give you your login to the system. All you need to do is sign in and download the applications you want to use.
This offer has considerable benefits for churches.
- An email account tied to your church domain name and not a generic email provider.
