Yesterday I shared Top Chart, Diagram, and Whiteboard Tools for Pastors. Today we look at the top applications for collaboration with your team! Managing your staff can be one of the most challenging aspects of being a pastor and most churches do not have typical business hours, so the use of collaboration tools can really benefit the church. I do want to highlight one major standout on this list: Text The Mob is a fantastic tool that you can use to get feedback during your sermons every week! Your congregation can text in answers to questions that you propose on Sunday mornings. I have been in a few services where this has been used and the result, if you have buy-in from your church is awesome! I am thinking about running an article on all the text applications that churches can use later on, but for now this was the only one to make this list. Enjoy!
This week I am going to share with you online tools that pastors should be using. Today is part one: Appointments and Calendars. I have said that pastors have to be extremely organized individuals, they have a lot of thing that they have to manage. Today, I want to share with you 11 online calender and meeting applications that will make tracking your time much easier. Some of these applications are free, but all of them have free trials. I have personally used most of these at one time or another. Enjoy!
