I love a good productivity hack. I especially love one that increases the productivity of me, my co-workers, and the people we serve. That’s why I’m a big fan of webinars for training.

Technology Training in the Church

By Jenn Eickman | Aug 23, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Change is hard. Change is inevitable. Embrace change. Help others embrace change.

We all know that technology changes weekly, daily, and even hourly. The way we communicate and connect with others seems to change on a dime—and sometimes in ways we would have never expected.

It is our job as communicators to connect with and communicate to an age range of tweens – 90+.  Many of our members embrace the technological world and its changes. Many use smart phones, computers, tablets, can text, or video chat. But let’s not forget those that are timid to change or learning new things.

Smartphones are, arguably, the single most formative technology in the past decade.

By Kimberly Myers | Jun 6, 2016 9:00:00 AM

A quick online search about making yourself replaceable at work is likely to try to offer you articles about being irreplaceable or indispensable. While each of us brings a special set of skills and abilities to our jobs, we should all keep in mind that illness or sudden changes in life could mean that we have to leave our job to another person with little notice. So how can you prepare for someone else to take over?

Church Communication & Vocation

By Katy Munson | May 24, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Vocation,or those roles to which God has called us to love and serve our neighbor, is at the heart of our lives as Christians. God uses means, or those things we encounter in our daily lives, to care for and communicate with His creation.

He works through what we often consider ordinary. Literally, the word vocation means “calling.” He works through the gifts and talents He’s given us, including those in the area of communication, both within the walls of the church and outside of them.

Vacation Bible School has a long history of doing things creatively. When looking at ways to recruit and train volunteers for this ministry, why not follow in that vein?

It might make sense to recruit volunteers and then train them for VBS or any other event or need your church may have. Yet, training information is important to have when recruiting.

By Hannah Osborne | Mar 31, 2016 9:00:00 AM

When working with other people, you will inevitably run into those who are different from you—different in terms of work style, work ethic, and personality.
