E-ministry (Evangelism) Meeting Minutes

September 24, 2003










Present: Pastor Russ Creydt, Garret Pick

Absent: Edna Dunn










Garret provided an update on the progress with the new website hosting service.Garret sat down with Linda Cluney on September 22, 2003 and signed up on-line at for a year at the cost of $24.17 per month using the church�s credit card.There is a discount for signing up for a year versus month to month.The demo site will no longer expire.










Josh also offered to purchase CBTS a domain name (a $19 cost) but Garret replied that CBTS intended to transfer the current name (










Garret also reported that Josh has been extremely responsive and helpful with answering questions and has already provided some slight customization.So far, he hasn�t found anything that Josh couldn�t support.










Garret reported progress on getting an old CBTS youth webpage taken down.This is still publically visible, easy to find, and states misinformation such as a job opening for a youth councilor at CBTS.Ruth Marie Quirk contacted Reynold Feldman to get the password.This is an example of the type of problem we hope to avoid in the future.










Garret discussed his effort to submit the church�s URL to various search engines and other efforts to increase the visibility of the site.










Garret reiterated the goals for the project:










-�������� focus less on the technical aspects of the site (coding and design) and more on the content (making sure it�s fresh, up-to-date and publicizes all of the missions and activities at CBTS)

-�������� lessen the burden on the current webmaster and share the responsibility of publicizing content across church staff and leaders

-�������� enable multiple users to post content without needing special technical skills or having to worry about keeping the site looking uniform

-�������� increase visitation and communication with CBTS by making it more interactive

-�������� keeping better statistics about who is visiting the site and it�s effectiveness










Garret and Pastor Russ then discussed an action plan to transition the website and get it ready for use.
