Get One Year of Zoom Meetings for $60 (regularly $240)!


The Office of Church Development is excited to announce that we have negotiated a great deal to offer corporate licenses to all WNC Conference churches through Zoom. These licenses have several great features, such as:
  • Hosting up to 300 participants per meeting
  • Unlimited number and length of meetings
  • Cloud recording
  • Polling
  • Chat
  • Dial in numbers for audio by phone
  • Streaming to online services (like Facebook Live), and
  • Transcription.

The discounted price is a year of Zoom for $120, which is half off the regular price. The Office of Church Development is also offering a $60 matching grant to the first 500 churches that request it (limit one per church). Churches can register for as many licenses as you need, but there is a limit of one matching grant per church.

When registering, you may choose from a one or two-year subscription, giving you the option to lock in this price for two years. We will also match the grant for up to two years (two years of Zoom for $120!) All subscriptions begin as soon as you register and run through July 31, 2021 or 2022, so register today to ensure you get the most out of your account!

If your church already has a paid Zoom account and you transfer your account into our corporate account, Zoom will credit you for the remainder of your existing subscription.

The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:

  • Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
  • Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.

We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at
