How prodigal started their logo design journey

Summary

[PLEASE READ ALL INCLUDING ***UPDATE]
We are looking for a brilliant logo design (branding) that will look great on everything! "Project ChurchList" (company name) is a startup, web based, philanthropic, purpose driven organization that came about for the sole purpose of inspiring and facilitating viral giving among Christians of all Faiths.

"Contagious Viral Giving" and "Help Someone Else... Help Yourself", are messages that will be used for marketing campaigns -- Just to give you an example of what we are all about, and the underlying message of Project ChurchList.org

***UPDATE***

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.

Company name

ProjectChurchList.org

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

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.

Wants

- Sans Serif Type
- The design must translate well on all mediums (i.e. web, t-shirt, caps, pens, billboard, etc.)
- The design should work in color for web usage, as well as black and white for one-color print applications - Partof the logo should be a graphic symbol (non-text) that can also work as astand alone visual identity, for example as a watermark in thelower corner of video productions -- similar to the way televisionnetworks superimpose their logo in the lower corner of all their programming  
- Try variations with and without the tagline of "christians for christians".
- Variation with the word "Project" less emphasized than ChurchList.
- Design should be reversible so logo can work on light (white) background or dark (black) background
- The .org should have less emphasis and not distract from the overall design, and does not have to be placed in the expected position

- No Sterotypicalreligious design items (i.e. roses, hearts,  mothers,crosses, Jesus, Mary, etc.) 
- Not Toobusy or complex
- No more than 3 colors (maybe 4 colors)
