From the floating header on meta:

Imagine you’ve just gotten on an elevator with a friendly stranger. You have precisely one floor to describe your community to them. What would you say? The elevator pitch is a brief sentence that describes what your site is about. Every word counts!

Once decided, it can be sliced and diced to form:

the tagline the motto the blurb under the logo a convenience redirect “nickname” for the site perhaps eventually the domain name in some form

Would the tagline from the Jewish Stack Exchange work but for Christianity?

  • Christian Life and Learning

    This question is crucial to this site. It's admittedly very early days, but right now, the questions on main don't inspire me with great confidence for the future of the site. We need to struggle for some kind of identity and unity of purpose. At the moment there seem to be a lot of hair-splitting type 'intellectual' questions. – Benjol Aug 24 '11 at 5:33
  • Do we get to pick the domain for this site too? – Ecommerce Consultant Aug 27 '11 at 1:46

    Nope. Unfortunately they will only give us Christianity.stackexchange.com till we reach serverfault,com levels which I think is bogus. – Steve Moser Aug 27 '11 at 4:30

We are a site devoted to asking and answering questions related to Christianity. We welcome questions from all traditions and Creeds and do not discriminate. We seek to learn from and educate each other in a way that is non-confrontational and exemplifies the teachings of Christ

-- With all due credit to wax eagle.

  • A very good <strike>one</stike> three liner. Based on this discussion about the word denomination and others like it I might update this to "We welcome questions from all traditions without discrimination." – Caleb Aug 26 '11 at 22:58
  • @Caleb: Good call. Fixed. – Kramii Reinstate Monica Aug 27 '11 at 2:01

Our Elevator pitch should be:

We are a site devoted to asking and answering questions related to Christianity. We welcome questions from all denominations and Creeds and do not discriminate. We seek to learn from and educate each other in a way that is non-confrontational and exemplifies our relationship with Christ.

Alternative in response to comments:

We are a site devoted to asking and answering questions related to Christianity. We welcome questions from all denominations and Creeds and do not discriminate. We seek to learn from and educate each other in a way that is loving, exemplifying the "Golden Rule" - that we treat each other with the respect we believe we deserve.

    This is good - but not everyone who participates here has a "relationship with Christ". – Kramii Reinstate Monica Aug 25 '11 at 5:33
  • From the FAQ Christianity - Stack Exchange is for committed Christians, experts in Christianity and those interested in learning more. I have to agree with your point, but at some point we need to define a target audience. – Richard Aug 25 '11 at 10:49
  • @Kramii - how about an edit that suggest we seek to emulate Christ rather than exemplify our relationship? Is that a bit better? – wax eagle Aug 25 '11 at 11:29

    @Richard: "Those interested in learning more" explicitly includes those who are not Christians, but have an interest Christianity. You're right about defining our target audience, and I imagine that the majority of participants in this site are likely to be Christians. That said, it would be disrespectful to assume that everyone who posts here is a believer. – Kramii Reinstate Monica Aug 25 '11 at 21:37
  • @wax eagle: Personally, I thought the original read better. How about, "We are a site devoted to asking and answering questions related to Christianity. We welcome questions from all denominations and Creeds and do not discriminate. We seek to learn from and educate each other in a way that is non-confrontational and exemplifies the teachings of Christ"? – Kramii Reinstate Monica Aug 25 '11 at 21:38
  • @Kramii - you should post that as an answer – wax eagle Aug 26 '11 at 13:26

Scratch that. Our tag line but not our domain should be:

  • "Ask and you shall receive"

    Funny, but doesn't explain what the site is about. – Benjol Aug 24 '11 at 5:28

    Good tagline, bad elevator pitch – wax eagle Aug 27 '11 at 4:55

I like Christian Life and Learning.

It seems well suited. It conveys that there can be intellectual discussions at hand, but that it's also a place for more practical questions.

    Would this imply that Christian theology / history is off topic? – Kramii Reinstate Monica Aug 25 '11 at 5:31

From Advancing in Christian Living and our walk with Jesus:

This is a Q&A site not a Church.

This quote in itself probably wouldn't be a great tagline but perhaps a derivation of it would be.

  • No. But this would be an awesome comment on two different meta posts. Hedgemage's survivor and Caleb's we are not Christians. – wax eagle Aug 27 '11 at 13:56
