The Innovation of Dot Church

Dot Church Background: Rodney Sampson is a vetted innovator, entrepreneur, investor, author and consecrated bishop who focuses on shaping innovative economic policy and opportunities throughout all sectors of relevant society and culture. In 2002, after the departure of Rodney Sampson from his first technology and new media startups and as Co-Founder & CEO, he innovated Dot Church. Originally incorporated in 2003, Dot Church sought to become the world's leading faith based domain name registry by introducing and selling the ".church" domain names, a new extension that offered greater relevance and meaning than current faith based website addresses ending in .com, .net, .org and other top-level domains. Sampson collaborated with, an idealab! incubator company to make this happen. This collection of never before publicly released documents chronicle Sampson and his team's journey from 2002 - 2006 to create, champion and innovate this global cause that would serve to distinguish churches and ministries of all religious beliefs that tend to be homogenized amongst the millions upon millions of websites and online properties that exist today. Although Sampson was before his time with this start-up, his definitive and prophetic insight envisioned and written more than a decade ago provides Craig Groeschel and Bobby Gruenewald at LifeChurch.TV and the Kingdom marketplace with divine confirmation that it is now time to bring the .church domain extension to the world as a top-level domain. Let the Kingdom collaboration begin. Habakkuk 2:2-3 declares, "And the Lord answered me, and said, "Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will tarry.
