Albany Presbytery Online Communication Resources by Kim Deal

We are Stronger Together

It is easier than ever to gather together across vast distances to share ideas and collaborate.  Technology provides a myriad of solutions and it seems like as soon as you turn around, another potential opportunity pops up.

Here in the Albany Presbytery, we have a wide variety of expertise.  Let’s share our experiences and put them in one place.

What is this document?

We have compiled a list of resources, ideas and suggestions for people looking to set up communications within their church community. We plan to update it as it evolves and encourage you to share your ideas, resources, your experience on what has worked and what hasn’t.

Every church community has different needs.  We will outline tools and offer reviews to give you a place to start.

Do you have a business or product to recommend?  Do you have an experience which was not positive?  Share it with everyone?  Contact Kim Deal at [email protected]

The purpose of the Albany Presbytery Blog is to share information, tell stories, and promote the mission and ministry of the presbytery, synod and beyond.  While the breadth of this medium is intentionally broad, it is not a platform for opinion pieces related to business coming before the presbytery unless designed as part of an initiative to provide a diversity of viewpoints at the direction of the presbytery council.  Exceptions to this policy may be brought to the presbytery officers who will determine appropriateness of submissions.
