Although you can present one thousand one reasons to your pastor why the church needs a website the cost factor can make convincing him next to impossible. You can always ask his 16-year-old to put together a website using some WYSIWYG editor but chances are high the output will be far less than your expectations. Besides a cheap looking website is worse than no website at all. If you need a professional looking website you need a professional designer to finish the job.

This is an introductory blog post about the iPhone/Android App ‘How to share your faith’. A super easy yet very creative approach to evangelism. I am not going to write much as the embed video explains it all. Please see that the app will be free for a limited time only. [Download link]

According to the official website of ‘Jethro PMM’ Jethro is designed to facilitate efficient team ministry, so it’s named after Moses’ father-in-law, who in Exodus 18:13-23 introduced Moses to the concept of delegation.
Now this is a web app meant to install and run in a publicly accessible web server. However storing individual details of your ministry team in a web server isn’t safe unless the server is secured. If you can’t afford for security the next option is to install Jethro in a local PC. So in today’s blog post I am going show you how I installed it in my Windows 7 driven PC.
If you don’t know what ChurchInfo is, it’s a web-based, open source, Church Management software originally developed to be deployed in Linux driven web servers so that the authorized users could access it from anywhere, any time. Not all churches are capable of handling a web server which is why last year I wrote a tutorial on installing ChurchInfo in a Windows PC and it’s receiving a wide array of attention ever since. Though Installing in a PC is a fairly easy process, some of our readers ran into errors when they attempted the installation.
Ever since Ben Sinclair’s guest post “How your church can use the power of Facebook!” many pastors and church workers contacted me asking how to create a custom Facebook fan page for their own church or ministry. So far this was something only the developers were capable of doing and anyone who wanted an attractive custom Facebook fan page yet not tech savvy had to hire a professional.
If someone doesn’t have a Facebook account these days, it’s kind of a big deal. I can’t remember what I did before Facebook. It’s almost a necessity these days. A lot of people would disagree with that statement but it’s all about how you see it. I keep in contact with friends all around the world.
I have had the joy of guiding the church in the area of information technology for the last 14 years. One important truth I learned during this time is that unawareness and fear of failure are major reasons why churches and other non-profits delay or altogether deny adopting new and awesome technologies like “Cloud Computing”.
