Here is a great resource to check out. It is called the “Overflow Show“. The Overflow show is a free 5 minute audio podcast for christians which teach us how to natuarally “overflow” into our non-Christian friends’ lives with the gospel. Each show is different and brings new and helpful ideas. Topics include: how to transition to talking about Jesus; intellectual answers to objections about our faith; and many more. From answering questions, to removing doubts, the Overflow Show seeks to give you confidence and connect you better with non-believers. You can visit the “Overflow Show” website to listen to the show and find out more information.
There has been some great feedback on the last post about church and ministry websites. Most of those who left comments said that they utilize volunteers to create and maintain their church’s web presence. This is great. This is sharing and giving ministry away to those in your church who can use their gifts and abilities.
I am amazed at the number of church and ministry website companies that have popped up over the last few years. It seems like there were only a handful of companies a few years ago that offered services to create and get your church or ministry online.
With so many choices many churches and ministries wonder where to start. I know that this is driven by the size of the staff and if there is an on staff IT, graphic designer or technology person. I imagine the discussions within the staff teams are: Do we hire someone to create a website for us? Do we get a volunteer from the church to help us? Do we use a template? Which company? etc.
I have been involved with the development of a number of different websites over the last 11 years. In my next post I will share some thoughts and lessons learned. I would like to hear from you.
How does your church or ministry manage its website? Is there a person on staff? Does your church or ministry work with an outside company? If you use an outside company or service which one do you use?
