Why Advertise on

Advertising on gives you access to one of the largest audiences in the world for religious websites. In fact, we are on track for 15 million users in 2023 which would put us in the top 20 in this ranking of the Most Visited Faith and Beliefs websites.


Our audience is faith-based and worldwide. Our audience includes worship leaders, hymn lovers, publishers, musicians, students, pastors, church leaders and lay people across most denominations of Christianity.

A recent month included a top 10 of the U.S., Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Canada, Philippines, India, Australia, Ghana, Kenya and Jamaica with 50 percent of the traffic coming from the U.S. and the other half coming from another 200 countries around the globe.

And our numbers continue to go up on a consistent basis with recent months seeing drawing almost 1.5 million users.

We are supported in part by advertising revenue and are always excited about advertising partnerships with organizations whose products and services align with our users' interests.

We also work hard to make sure that our large audience numbers don’t mean large expenses or hassles for our advertising partners.

Placements are sold for a flat monthly fee ranging from $350 to $2,200, and each placement requires only a minimum six-month purchase. 

While many websites will charge anywhere from $3 to $10 per 1,000 impressions, advertising on can be as little as 88 cents per 1,000 impressions and our highest rate is still just over $1 per 1,000 impressions.
