New Friends

We made some new friends.      Over the last several days Maureen and I have had the pleasure of opening our home to a couple (Daniel and Hannah Iwanowycz) that is chaperoning a group of students from Pensacola Christian College as they travel around the United States.      The group is a performing music team that has been helping out at Lavon Drive Baptist Church (general labor around the church) the last few days, and will be moving on to a church in Flower Mound Texas today and tomorrow. They will be returning on Monday (to help set up for VBS), and then leave on Tuesday to head south towards the Austin/San Antonio area.      Daniel and Hannah were a blessing to have around, we had some great fellowship, and found out we had a lot in common. When Daniel gets back to Pensacola I understand he will be enrolling in an advanced class in "card shuffling." There is a rumor going around that he is sorely lacking in that...

Updating Websites

Updating Websites           I received an email from Pastor Gelfand of Sewickley Lighthouse Baptist Church (SLBC) in Sewickley PA. He sent me a copy of the church’s calendar and asked me to put it up on their website.      I put their 2016 Calendar (pdf file) up on the website and added the events to the WordPress calendar software with the limited information I had available.      Updating websites is a service I do for a number of ministries that can’t update their websites on their own due to a variety of reasons. This is an integral part of our ministry here (whether we are hosting them or not). I have been asked to update websites we were not hosting and have, on a couple of occasions, been able to help out other ministries.      We have been working with SLBC since 2008 when two churches merged and formed Sewickley Lighthouse Baptist Church, and we registered their new domain (s-lbc.com) and started hosting them on the older Website Baker Templates. I was able to move them over to the more secure WordPress platform a little over a year ago.      It is an honor and a privilege to help out God’s ministers by updating their websites and allow them to focus on running the churches. This is especially helpful to many of the smaller churches that we...

New Website

     I was contacted yesterday by Paul Pullen, a former pastor I put up a website for last year. Paul was no longer pastoring the church we put up that website for, but the church he was attending now (North Spoon Baptist Church in Poplarville Mississippi) wanted a new website.      Paul gave me the requirements the church had for the new website. We talked briefly about the option of doing a “budget streaming” of special camp meetings and special services, and he was going to look into a Twitter offering called “Periscope.”      We talked a little and Paul decided on “northspoonbc.com” as a domain name. I set his new website up on WordPress with a calendar and sermon manager. I am waiting to hear back from Paul any assistance he may need in setting up a different template and/or getting the sermon manager or calendar...
