It was almost 10 years ago that I started this website. Back then, I was working at a medium-size church in Western New York. I began writing to chronicle my adventures as a part-time TD working full-time hours. Turns out, a few people wanted to follow along. Since then, I’ve worked at churches in Minneapolis and SoCal. I’m now on my second integration company as well. It’s been quite the journey.
When I was a TD, I had no shortage of things to write about. Now that I’m on the other side of the aisle as an integrator, I still have lots to write about, but I want to be sure to continue to feature content that will help you as a TD—staff or volunteer. The last thing I want to do is generate a bunch of content that is not really applicable to what you’re dealing with day-in and day-out.
Thankfully, I know a lot of smart people. And now, you’re going to get to know them, too. Over the next few months, you’re going to start seeing new names on the bylines of the articles. I won’t spoil the surprise of who will be here, but keep your eyes peeled.
The guys bringing in to write are really smart and have a huge heart to serve the church. They see this as an extension of that service. My goal is to have 4-5 other people writing a post per month here. I have two lined up, and more on the way. Can I tell you, I’m really excited about this!
You’ll also see Van has begun writing more often. This, too is good news!Van has been doing this even longer than I have, and has learned many lessons throughout his time on staff. Not only is he a really wise technical leader, he’s also one of my best friends.
Don’t worry, I’ll still be writing as well. I still have plenty to say, and I’ll be writing from the perspective of volunteer, former TD and systems guy. Or whatever else I feel like talking about. It’s good to be the blog owner!
So stay tuned! We have a lot of good stuff coming here at ChurchTechArts!
