The organization's first project was the Village Life Online Magazine, launched on the Web in 1996 as the first exclusively-Internet based Christian news magazine.
Funded by a grant from the former Bauman Bible Telecasts of Washington, D.C., it attempted to "provide objective clarity and a sense of hope to the news and provide an environment that encourages the open discussion of issues of interest to people of faith."
The initial grant for the site was exhausted by mid-1997 and site-specific news feature reporting was suspended at that time. An attempt to report faith-based disaster response news in Village Life, provided background and context for a study completed later that year for the domestic disaster roundtable of Church World Service. Recommendations from that study lead to the creation of the award-winning Disaster News Network, also produced by Village Life Company.
The organization has also provided consultative services, classes and workshops in effective uses of the Internet and public information programs related to disaster response and social justice issues.
