You know it’s true: Look around your church long enough and you are going to find someone using a computer that is older than Moses.
There is probably a church secretary out there still using Windows 98, or a maintenance guy who was unaware Apple ever upgraded beyond OS 9.
Most IT departments fall under one of three prevailing philosophies:
- Upgrade everyone as soon as possible.
- Upgrade people on some sort of time-based cycle.
- If it ain’t broke, why would you get an upgrade?
If your church is smaller, you probably operate under the third philosophy. And that is OK, there is no shame there! Until an ill-fated lightening strike a couple months ago, the computer our church used for slides was an old Win2K server. Lightening fried the logic board which paved the way to a new uni-body Mac Mini.
An act of God indeed.
