Conclusion of this session Goal: Share low cost, high value web-based tools to help pastors and church staff run the back office more effectively. • Improve communication • Build trust online • Engage others to join your cause Summary: Technology continues to be a cornerstone within churches. IT drives fundraising efforts, new member outreach and staff management. With most staff at churches being volunteers and funds coming from donations, its important that both time and resources are being leveraged effectively.
