We are looking forvery recognizable branding for our start up organization "ProjectChurchList", with the slogan "christians for christians"included in the design.
Project ChurchListwill be a web based, benevolence driven Christian network, built on top of aclassified ads platform (kinda like a craigslist on dynamic, web 2.0, mediarich steroids). Our niche will be inspiring and facilitating the largest traffic of free goods andservices among Christians on the planet. We look at our organization as more ofa movement or culture, than just a business.
Future growth will include inspiring stories of good will, along with a strong video presence.
We really want a design that visually says what the organization is all about... which isbrother helping brother, infectious giving, reaching down to pullsomeone up, giving that spreads like a virus, pay it forward, etc. We are hoping to geta great visual metaphor combined with sans serif type and inviting colors.

We have just decided on a more definite approach to our design problem that we can build into our company vision (thanks to #23 - Tourcat).
For those of you that are willing to change direction with us, we are impressed with using a tree or a "tree hand" to represent who we are, what we do, and who our target market is.
Description of a tree as a "NEW" Christian metaphor:
Christians are all part of one body (tree trunk), yet we are many individuals and denominations (branches).
The leaves of a tree have lines just like the open palms of our hands (reaching out)
Jesus was hung on "a tree".
In heaven there is a "Tree of Life".
A tree is a perfect symbol of giving: a tree gives food, shelter, shade, oxygen, paper, clothing, wood, sap, syrup, medicine, protection, etc. wow!
Now all we need is the perfect incorporation of this symbol into the design. I hope you all understand the vision. Let us know if you have questions.
Lets try an organic feel with sans serif type.
