Quick Update

I have been off a week now – been using the opportunity to catch up on the ministry work. Have done considerable updating to the Independent Baptist database (http://www.baptist-ministries.org). There are many churches that have simply released domains and registered new domains to put up a website. I am trying to educate Pastors, Staff and Lay people about the importance of protecting the domain as they would any other church asset. I am researching website software for Pastor Carpenter (Old Paths Baptist Church) in Mount Vernon Illinois. Pastor Carpenter wants to update his website from Twitter. Website Baker will publish RSS feeds, but does not seem to like Twitter. I worked with Dr. Nancy Shields to tweak her websites (http://blog.toolkit-ministry.org and http://www.toolkit-ministry.org). I added a Paypal donate button to both sites and did some minor changes she requested. I was contacted by a Pastor in North Carolina.

Friendship Baptist Church – Tioga Texas

Maureen and I attended Friendship Baptist Church in Tioga Texas this morning. We had set up an "Unofficial Website" for them years ago. I was contacted by their Director of Communications, Vicky Paulson several months ago to set up a permanent web page. We registered a domain "friendshipbaptistintioga.com" and set them up on the templates. They have not done anything to update the website yet – but I met the gentleman in church that wants to do some updating. The church is currently undergoing a pastoral search, they are affiliated with the Baptist Bible Fellowship...
