Happy Birthday Church Tech Arts

I can't believe it's been four years. In fact, I almost missed it. I put an event on my calendar for yesterday to remind me, and I blew right past.

Anyway, it was four years ago yesterday that the first article on what was then churchtech.wordpress.com posted. At the time, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I started CTA to have a place to put some of what I was learning working at a church out in the open so perhaps other people could learn as well. I never expected it to grow like this.

Now, 613 posts and 260,000 views later an entire community has grown up around this little site. It's been so fun to get to know so many people because of this site. I have some very dear friends in my life because they found my blog. How cool is that? I also enjoy the questions and comments I receive from regular readers and truly appreciate the support and encouragement you've given over the years.

I look forward to seeing where this goes over the next four years, though I'll say now I don't really know what that looks like. But for me, that's part of the fun. I try to use the abilities God has given me to bring glory to Him and I let Him work out the rest.

Thanks to you, dear reader, for being part of the journey!
