About the Community

The Online Ministries Special-Interest Community is dedicated to teaching the planning, building and operating the online assets of churches. The community allows interactive participation among its members as well as with subject-matter experts dedicated to mentoring the community. This free online community is the first of a series of resources for helping churches improve their websites, social media and other online presences.

Some of the most important constituencies served by this community will include people without previous technical backgrounds such as clergy, church Boards, leaders and volunteers, without prior experience, who need to plan websites or lead teams that develop and operate online assets for churches.
