When Time & Technology Collide
Time management is a challenging topic all its own. Technology came with the promise of freeing up time, but didn’t deliver! In this workshop we’ll look at some time management tools— hi-tech and non-tech— and try to regain some of our life balance.


Facilitate Working Remotely Panel
Church teams are an increasingly mobile workforce. Questions abound!

  • How do you manage a workforce that often doesn’t work onsite?
  • What technologies work best?
  • What HR and legal issues are there?
  • What are the benefits to the church?

Essentials of IT Security with Jonathan E Smith
It’s easy for a church to have a data breach and end up in the news! What should leadership know to prepare?

We’ll talk through common vulnerabilities and how to strategically minimize them. We’ll cover firewalls, WiFi, passwords and passphrases, email vulnerabilities, malware (including ransomware), Macs, mobile devices, and training your team!


What’s Hot & What’s Not with Jonathan E Smith
Technology is changing at an ever-increasing speed!

  • Some of it is good!
  • Some of it is very good!
  • Some of it is not very good, or even horrible.

We will share our perspectives on some hot and not hot technology, and then open it up for Q&A.

  • What some of the most common fraud tactics are,
  • What the latest trends indicate, and
  • How to protect yourself, your family, your church, and your congregation.
