One key way churches can support the Advocate is by becoming an Advocate Church Partner.

Advocate church partners believe a strong and flourishing Advocate newspaper ministry helps strengthen the United Methodist connection. To that end, they enroll in an Advocate church plan (print or online).

  • The online plan is $1/person per year (based on average weekly attendance).
  • The print plan is $10/person per year (10 people required).

To start a church plan and become an Advocate Church Partner, download the form here! Or reach out to Advocate Editor Jessica Brodie directly at or 803-786-9486, ext. 338.
