While discussing some of my favorite sources for information about church communications technology with Rex Hammock, I came up with this list based on my iGoogle church tech tab and Twitter feed. Thought I’d share it with you guys and then ask you what I should add to the list.
- www.happywebdiva.com and www.faithandweb.com/ (especially since the author, Anna Belle Leiserson, is a Nashvillean (Nashvillager? Nashvillite?) like Rex
- Church Marketing Lab (Flickr) by @holycowcreative
- I also added that while this would’ve been cooler if Twitter Search cached its tweets longer, my diocese was running updates from #WorkCamp, an annual program where teens go to rural, dirt poor areas of Virginia for a week to help repair dilapidated housing.
- Theology on Tap — priests go to local bars to give talks on spiritual topics; talks are recorded and available on iTunes. Attracts big crowds surprisingly.
- @stcharleschurch (the Twitter account I run for my church)
[Update: July 20, 2009 — OpenSourceCatholic.com looks like it’s going to turn into another great source. Check it out.]
[Update: October 3, 2009 — ProductiveCatholic.com “is designed to give Catholics tools and ideas on how to optimize their time and money in order to focus on their life’s purpose: to worship God and help others.” Try out the site, get fired up and make a difference.]
I’d like to build out this list. What are your go-to sources for finding inspiration about churches using communications technology in bold ways?
