The Pathway launches new, improved Web site
July 20, 2004
The Pathway has launched a new Web site that will enable stories to be posted almost instantaneously while offering updated archives featuring a powerful search engine that will enable users to research Pathway stories easier and faster.
The site, www.mbcpathway.com, provides nearly all of the links of the previous site and many new ones. In addition to links to Baptist Press and other theologically conservative organizations and publications, the site offers some – but not all – of the content featured in the biweekly print edition of The Pathway. The site will continue to offer the Sunday School lessons of James McCullen and Andy Chambers, the prayer partnership features focusing on the Missouri Baptist Convention’s (MBC) ministry to Romania and Iraq, and the opinion columns of MBC Executive Director David Clippard, Pathway Editor Don Hinkle and others who have established The Pathway editorial pages among the liveliest and most conservative in the Southern Baptist Convention.
The site also offers a link where readers can get emails alerting them that an important, breaking story has just been posted.
“We are grateful to our merciful God for his continued blessings upon The Pathway and I hope our readers will find the new Web site to be an encouragement,” Hinkle said. “While the site is now accessible, I want to alert users that we will still be tweaking some things in coming weeks to make it even better.”
Julie Anderson, former layout and design coordinator for the former Mid-Missouri Business Journal and a member of First Baptist Church, Linn, has been hired to coordinate Web site activity. Anderson has a bachelor’s degree in graphic art design from Columbia College. She also serves as The Pathway’s advertising coordinator. Anderson succeeds David Krueger, pastor, First Baptist Church, Linn, who has served as The Pathway’s Webmaster on a part-time basis since its creation.
