Church Learn is a platform where experienced church leaders can share their knowledge with those who are just getting started. By curating a consistent source of high quality content and training programs tailored to the church, we believe that we can see greater impact throughout the world for the Glory of God.


Vixster is a valet waste and recycling removal service that connects Watauga County community members in need of trash pick up (residential and business) with registered drivers in the area looking to earn some extra cash. Our online site keeps it simple. Both Requestors & Drivers are invited to create a profile according to appropriate user type. Vixster will efficiently match needs and pick up availability. The best part? All transactions occur online. We think convenience is a pretty big deal.
