Become an Advocate Partner

Want an easy way to get your church a group subscription to the Advocate? Become an Advocate Partner through an Advocate Church Plan

Sometimes, we need more than one subscription. That’s why the Advocate created discounted group rates—to help your church stay connected through this newspaper ministry.

Individual subscriptions are $20/year, but you can partner with us through a Church Leadership Plan, a Group Print Plan or an Online Whole-Church Plan.

With the Church Leadership Plan, you select 5 church leaders to get the Advocate at $15 apiece, which is $75 total. Need more than five? Consider a Group Print Plan or an Online Whole-Church Plan. The print plan costs $10/person per year, and the online plan costs $1/member, with cost based on your church’s average weekly attendance in the Journal. The print plan is mailed directly to subscribers’ homes. The online plan is sent as a PDF to one person at the church (pastor, secretary, etc.) and then sent by you to your full church email list. 

Those who have taken the extra step to get a Group Print Plan or an Online Whole-Church Plan are called ADVOCATE PARTNERS.
