Disclosure Statement

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Shawn Wood.

I would like to disclose the following existing relationships. These are companies, organizations or individuals that may have a significant impact on the content of this blog. I’m employed by or have contracts with: Seacoast ChurchShawnwoodwrites.com and Abingdon Press.

My goal is that the content provided would be a  free resource to church leaders and generate conversations that equip and encourage them as well. In full-disclosure, it’s also a means of financially supporting my family.

With that in mind, this blog accepts several forms of cash advertising and sponsorship. We will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.

Because this is a personal blog and reflects on my character and integrity I actually only partner with organizations that I know and work with enough to stand behind in a major way.  This means that often my worlds will cross and Seacoast Church vendors will be partners.  I also will often be given the opportunity to pre-read books because of my publishing relationship with Abingdon.  Although this gives me opportunities that I am glad for the compensation recieved will not keep me from being completely honest about my partners products.

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. By the way we are always looking for advertising partners.

I am compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though we receive compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own and do not in any way represent Seacoast Church. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

For questions about this blog, please contact me by email. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
