CWS Podcast - Ep. 19: Web Team Meetings (Part 1): Who to Invite

cws_podcastIn this episode I will outline the various church roles that should be involved in your regular website meetings; ensuring you keep the right people informed, as well as the proper authority to make those crucial decisions to guide the direction of your website. Unfortunately, most sites often start with one person who knows a little HTML, and the guidance of "go make us a website". However as more people in the church get involved and interested in what the website can do, decisions become very complicated. So how do you form that winning team? A few key players in your church can meet and help your website exceed the expectations of everyone at your church.

They include:

  • Web Team
  • Church Leadership & Business Stakeholders
  • Finance
  • External Communications
  • Internal Communications
  • God

Action Item: Review who you are inviting to web meetings. If you are not holding separate meetings, perhaps it is time you started. Of course this is meant as a general guideline. You should tailor this for your church so you have just the right amount of opinions and authority to guide your church's website. Future episodes will delve into what to do with those meetings, as well as handling any trouble during said meetings. Lastly, check out my article on website critique guidelines to help make any reviews go more smoothly.
