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

You know reading the Advocate is a great way to stay connected and know all about what’s happening in The United Methodist Church in your district, across the state and around the world. But at $15/year, it’s not always affordable for everyone in your church. That’s why we started the Advocate Church Partner Program—to help your church affordably and easily enroll in an Advocate church plan: print or online.

To get started, select one:

  • Online Church Plan ($1/member per year based on church’s average weekly attendance per the Journal. Perfect for churches that do regular or occasional emails to your members. We send you a PDF of the Advocate each month, and you email it to your congregation)
  • Print Church Plan ($10 per subscription per year. Must have 10+ participants for discounted rate of $10. Perfect for churches who don’t send out regular emails. Newspapers are mailed directly to your church member’s home, or choose to have all 10 go to your church.)

To start a church plan and become an Advocate Church Partner, download the form here!

Or reach out to Advocate Editor Jessica Brodie directly at or 803-786-9486, ext. 338.
