Churches across the SBC are committed to reaching their communities and beyond with the gospel— Send Network is what happens when church planters and churches partner together to do just that. Church planting isn’t just a ministry for individual church planters—it’s a ministry for the whole Church.
Plant healthy, multiplying churches in every community across North America

To protect the integrity of the Send Network brand visual identity, please avoid altering the logo in any way. Use the supplied logo files as is.

Photography should be the primary element used in Send Network designs to give a storytelling feel and evoke emotion. Send Network’s photography style is candid and aims to capture real, authentic moments that highlight the people and the ministries being featured. Natural lighting should be used whenever possible; avoid a direct flash or staged lighting. Use full-color photography as much as possible to bring color to design without relying solely on graphics. Duotones, if used, should be used sparingly and are typically best when used as a background/support image (although, full color photography with a dark overlay effect is preferred). With all of our photography we strive to reflect the diversity in ethnicity, gender, age, background and community that our denomination represents.
Angled lines are used in various forms throughout Send Network pieces to imply motion and forward direction. Repeating brand marks should be used sparingly. Instead, try to use more angled shapes, crops, photo masks, deconstructed forms of the brand mark or other forms of implied angles to tie the branding together.
The Gotham font family is the primary brand font for Send Network. Various weights may be combined when used appropriately. The font Better Times is a script font that we often use for headlines or special call-out text. Serif fonts may be used in small doses, but they should not be a primary font. For instance, Serif fonts are used on namb.net for quotations or news article titles, however Sans-serif fonts are still used for the majority of body copy.
The following are examples of how we apply the various brand elements (patterns, background colors, graphics, typography, etc.) in a variety of ways to create a cohesive brand aesthetic. Whether you are creating original assets for Send Network or one of its brands, working off of a template or simply modifying an existing asset, please make sure to remain consistent with these aesthetic treatments unless instructed otherwise by the NAMB Creative Team.
