Different Ways to Help Joplin

Randy Gariss was my pastor back home in Joplin at College Heights Christian Church.  He was the master of ceremonies at the Memorial Service after the Tornado in May. Earlier this month he spoke briefly at the North American Christian Convention in July 2011 in Cincinnati, Ohio on how to help Joplin. He shared insights from private conversations with both the Governor of Missouri and the President of the United States.

Feel free to share this video or others that I have made to continue raising awareness for this great cause. For more info:

All Around the World – Well known church technology site Church Tech Matters, is opening its door wide, adding new writers, a new look, and new community building tools all designed to help the church effectively use technology to reach people for Christ.
CTM was founded in October of 2004 as the weblog of Jim Walton. Over time, the site grew to become a valuable resource for both church staff and volunteers, looking at both technical and non-technical topics. Church Tech Matters has been the generous outflow of Jim’s experience, passion and observations as he has served as a volunteer technical leader in 2 churches, as well as a consultant to churches seeking to use technology effectively.
After four years of outreach and growth, Jim has opened the doors of Church Tech Matters, to broaden the site’s reach, and increase its effectiveness. Jim is now leading a core team of dedicated, talented and passionate tech volunteers from around the world as they write about their experiences and reach out to an even larger audience.

The site’s purpose remains unchanged: To equip the church to effectively use technology to reach people for Christ.  What changes is how that purpose will be realized. Church Tech Matters is now a site dedicated to church tech volunteers, written by church tech volunteers, and the people who lead them.

Please join us as we begin this next chapter of the journey Church Tech Matters.  New features and resources are on the way, as we seek to build a community for the volunteers who make technology in the church sing.  The newest addition to the site is a forum, a place for you to ask questions, answer questions, interact with the  Church Tech Matters authors and more.

Jim’s involvement with Church Tech Matters continues, but he has stepped back and let go of the reins, so to speak, to allow this site to become more than it ever has been.

You’re invited to join this experiment, by subscribing via RSS, or via Email.  You should also join the site forum at  You can also join the CTM Facebook group, our LinkedIn group (coming soon) or follow us on Twitter @CTMatters.

Please join us as we kick off this site for church tech volunteers written by church tech volunteers.
