How do you get started using MailChimp for church email newsletters? Head over to and add your email address, login name, and password.

Next, you’ll get an email from them. Click the button in the email to confirm it.

Now, Mailchimp needs some information. They need your physical address for the CanSpam act. This shouldn’t be an issue b/c you’re a church and you want people to show up.

For more details, watch the video.

Next week, I’ll show you how to use the account you’ve just made.

What are your concerns? What would you like to learn? Just tell me in the comments below.
