Worldwide Faith News

Worldwide Faith News screenshotWorldwide Faith News (WFN) is a project of the National Council of Churches USA, through the Communication Commission. It was originally designed in consultation with journalists, journalism school faculty, faith group news directors and participating faith groups.

When the site was moved to a new server in 2010, all code was standardized and brought up to web standards, and new style sheets were created and applied consistently. Problems with the display of news and headlines on the previous site were fixed on the revised site.

In 2012, the site underwent a major redesign and was moved to Drupal. News is now displayed on the site via RSS feeds rather than the old email submission process by participating faith groups. A daily digest of news headlines is sent to subscribers and RSS feeds from the WFN site are available.
