Newsflash: you do not need to be young to work in technology. Basic computer skills and a can-do attitude can put nearly anyone in charge of the daily maintenance of your church’s website. Here are some tips and encouragement to get volunteers of any age involved and engaged. It is never too late to start!
- Why a web professional may not volunteer to help
- How a retired member can help
- The skill sets required
- Possible training opportunities
- Their role in the web team
If your current web team is overburdened with the regular updates, ask for help from your congregation. Stress that only basic computer skills and an adventurous attitude is all that is required. They may not be able to troubleshoot a system outage, but they can certainly make a meaningful contribution to your church and the Kingdom of God!
