For two years, the ChurchPOP website has sought to craft faithful, fun content for the social media age. It hopes to do even more now that it has been acquired by the EWTN Global Catholic Network.
"ChurchPOP seeks to evangelize by spreading Catholic culture in a way tailored to the online social media world," said Brantly Millegan, the editor-in-chief of ChurchPOP.com. "We've developed a certain flavor that's faithful, accessible, and interesting that seems to have resonated with lots of people."
"Thanks to the backing of EWTN, we have big plans for the future of ChurchPOP," he added. He credited the website's success to "the great writers who contribute to ChurchPOP and to our readers, who help spread the word about the website."
Millegan said he launched ChurchPOP in August 2014, envisioning it as a Christian culture website in the style of BuzzFeed.
