A Church with No Tech Volunteers [Video]

No Tech Volunteers Screencap

I have advocated over and over the idea of doing church technology leadership that would include not only training and encouraging volunteers and staff teams, but supporting and honoring them in many different ways. Chip Dizard has gone out of his way to do just that for several of his team members specifically and the whole team in general at his church. The best part about this, the church staff jumped on board and gave what seems authentic words of thanks and appreciation for ... Continue Reading

What I Learned On Vacation: Check Your Email

Last month I had a vacation of sorts (as I mentioned before). During this time, I had some personal revelations about my life—both personally and work wise. I lend this to the fact that I spent multiple days at a time unplugged and completely disconnected from the Internet. No laptop. No tablet. No smartphone. I highly recommend you do it sometime—if not regularly. Not only did it force me to pause, clear my head, and have some self-reflection, but it also gave me a chance to contrast what I ...

I imagine little 4-year-old Cadence had that same sick feeling when she realized that she accidentally figured out how ... Continue Reading
