About Me intro

(tree fort I built when my kids were young,
freshly remodeled)

Who am I that you should listen to me?

I will give you honest feedback about church websites from my perspective,
and tell you what I can, about a church, via what I see from its website. 

The root reason for this website is:
It's obvious that many church leaders hate websites and email,
because I can plainly see that these tools are shunned by many.

Two main questions I pose:
1) What is Jesus' plan for today's Church, concerning church websites and email?
2) Does this plan apply to every church, no matter its size, location or audience?


My background:
Midwestern white male, raised in a 2-parent family.
tradesman, mostly carpentry
Sent to Sunday school, ages 5-14 years old.
Lived as a self-centered hedonist, ages 15-29.
Put 2 fingers through a table saw, 1980, which began to calibrate my outlook on life.
Born-again, 1984 in a small storefront church in Council Bluffs, IA
30 hours Bible college courses
Several years in various ministries around the church,
including 11 years on-staff in a large church maintenance department.

I was 38 years-old when the internet was publicly introduced, 
and was not one of its first subscribers, nor was I even vaguely interested in it.

Yet today, I manage a few websites of my own making. 
(They are listed at 'My Websites' on this site.)

So, if you're interested, browse my website, 
consider my perspectives to see if there is anything here to help win more souls.
