The Small Church Technology Juggle

It’s been a couple weeks since our last posting, and I apologize for that. But, there is good reason for the lack of publishing. As you should be aware, we’re sharing our experiences and insights as a small church that uses a lot of technology. Recently, we moved our church to an entirely new facility, and for the past few weeks we’ve been moving stuff and installing stuff.

We got the building ready for worship services basically over the course of three days. I think that’s amazing! Granted, we ordered any new gear that we needed (to compliment some existing) in time for the three-day crunch, but I still think we accomplished something amazing for a tech driven church, given that we had to address sound, video and lighting in a venue that had nothing. Being a smaller faith community certainly was advantageous!

I know that Michael is considering a post about new process and some of the new gear we’ve chosen, but I thought I should drop a line “from the trenches” to let you know that we’re still here, and still trying our best to get the most out of our tech dollars.

The move certainly is not without its hiccups. For instance, we’re relying on 3rd party contractors for some construction work, and they are moving pretty slow. Also, we have not yet put everything in place to get our online campus running again. We’re waiting for the camera to be setup and some kind of live broadcasting box that Michael can elaborate on later.

We’d love to hear from you – have you had a move or a major tech upgrade? What did you learn from the process?
