The NCC Christian Advocate is online free until January

It is free for anyone to access the site until January 2013. After the free trial period, persons will be required to purchase a subscription to read The Advocate. At this time, clergy will begin receiving The Advocate online only. Feedback on the look, navigation and features of the site is appreciated.
