So, project management is not one of my strong suits. Unfortunately for me, project management is a large part of what I (need to) do. I am happy to say, however, that a number of projects that I have been working on are completed. There are still a lot of projects that need to be done/started, but I have chosen to highlight the finished projects today.
First, I have gotten myself back in to blogging. We'll see how long this lasts, but I'm hoping to update this blog at least a couple times a month, if not more frequently.
Those of you who know my church or have spent time talking to me about St. Andrew's know that a large part of our ministry is a food pantry that is open twice a month and serves approximately 200 families. What you may not know is that, in order to keep track of everyone we serve, we need to use a program that requires internet access. There are no ethernet ports in our parish hall (where the food pantry is held), and the wireless internet signal wouldn't make it that far. This turned out to be a rather simple project. I just needed to take the time to pick up a wireless extender from Best Buy and get it set up. Now, we no longer need to run 50 feet of ethernet cable from our church offices into the parish hall.
Finally, we have started recording my sermons and posting them on the church website. This project turned out to be slightly more difficult than I had anticipated. We have a really old sound system at the church, and I couldn't get the sound to go through the attached tape deck. Eventually, I found a headphone jack on a part of the system that, until now, was connected but not being used. Sparing you the boring details, my sermons are now being posted on our church website. If you'd like to check them out, head on over to St. Andrew's website and click on the date under Weekly Sermons.
