— New web address announced for LifeWay Christian Resources

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Internet users can add a new bookmark to their favorite places folder now that the Sunday School Board is named LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.
When messengers approved the new name June 9 during the Southern Baptist Convention in Salt Lake City, the web site address also changed — from www.bssb.com to www.lifeway.com.
In addition to the various LifeWay sites listed below, cyber visitors to lifeway.com can find the newly added Broadman & Holman Publishers area, which offers a Christian retailer locator guide, highlights top 10 B&H books and popular church supplies, provides gift ideas, including a list of new Bibles and reference books, and lists favorite Spanish products. The B&H site also offers daily devotions under the link Experiencing God Today.
Coming July 1, the lifeway.com site will offer LifeWay Christian Stores Online. Visitors to the site will have on-line ordering access to Bibles, books, music, supplies, videos, reference materials and other resources for pastors, church staff and teachers.
Especially helpful to churches and individuals not located near a Christian bookstore, LifeWay Christian Stores Online is a secure and easy-to-use ordering tool.
In other LifeWay Internet-related news, on-line ordering of dated and undated resources and EXTRA! Sunday school teaching helps for all age groups continue to grow in popularity with web surfers.
LifeWay webmaster David Haywood reported that more than 7,020 personal identification numbers have been assigned to churches interested in ordering LifeWay resources via the Internet. Since the dated resources electronic order form went live in September 1997, more than 22,519 orders have been placed, he said. An electronic version of the undated order form went live in April of this year. To date,702 orders have been placed.
Additionally, the final portion of LifeWay employees’ e-mail addresses have changed to @lifeway.com. For example, anyone sending LifeWay President James T. Draper Jr. an e-mail may either use the first letter of the first name, six letters of the last name and @lifeway.com or his full name with a period between the first and last name ([email protected] or [email protected]).
To aid customers in making the transition to the new name, web site, and e-mail addresses, both the bssb.com domain name and the @bssb.com email address will remain operational indefinitely.
