I wasn’t exactly sure where to post this. It’s not an apologetics or faith topic and doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else. If this topic would fair better on another part of CAF, then please feel free to move it to an appropriate place.
About four years ago, my friends and I got together to form a message board with the intention of creating a non-denominational club for Christians who share our hobby.
We have very little experience with our endeavors, and it seems like we’re winging it most of the time. We’re very small now, but are hoping to grow.
To make a long story short, we need help with our club from other Christians outside our hobby. It’s essential that we have dialog with other Christians in order to gain support, but also to explain in better detail what are interests are and why we exist.
We really need someone who is willing to take the time to listen to and learn about us. Unfortunately, the eccentricity of our hobby doesn’t lend itself to being taken seriously, and the obscurity has caused many misconceptions about the nature of our hobby and our club.
We have been trying to encourage our members to speak with their church leaders and pastors in a form of grassroots effort, but this has had very limited success. There are not that many of us, and for the most part we have received very little recognition.
Currently, I’m a moderator on our message board and a Catholic. At least nine of our members are Catholic and the others come from various Christian traditions. By far, Catholics make up the largest part of our membership, and the second largest portion identify themselves as non-denominational. This is one reason why I’m posting on Catholic Answers.
Is there any Catholic organization or group (loyal to the Magisterium) who would be able to talk to us and help us… maybe even take us under their wing and mentor us? Someone from Catholic Answers, EWTN, or Saint Joseph Communications? We need help for outreach and prayer for our Catholic members, as well as people who can help answer questions about our Catholic faith and offer advice and counseling. We also need technical advice and advice on how best to run our website in a fun and family friendly way.
We will also need the same type of help for our non-Catholic members, as well.
If anyone can offer us some helpful advice, then it would be greatly appreciated.
It is very important that we have someone who will listen to us. Do respond if you can, and you can always private message, too.
God bless you all, and thank you so much for reading.
