Banner of Free or Cheap Tech Tools for Church Effectiveness Workshop Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined me for my workshop at this year’s session of the Rio Texas Annual Conference. It was a lot of fun and, as usual, I learned a lot from the conversations.

Since it was a bit of a whirlwind, I have collected the links to all the resources I shared.

Canvacanva

I showed how easy it is to create professional looking posters, postcards, bulletin covers, and more. Canva’s free templates and online help will drastically improve the look of your church.

It is time to step up your email game. We talked about how easy it is to create professional looking emails and save time for you, your staff, or your volunteers. I also mentioned Constant Contact, another great service.

Wufoo

Super easy forms for just about anything. Need a form to sign up for VBS, a Bible study, or a youth event? Wufoo has you covered for free. And it is not just about registration, you can design a form for just about anything. You can receive the information via email or view and download at the website.

Eventbrite

Eventbrite is just about events. Whether your event is free or you want to be able to accept payments via credit card, Eventbrite will help you set up a professional registration page. If you are charging, be sure to apply for a non-profit account. You will save money on every transaction.

This one isn’t free but, comparatively speaking, it is cheap. If you are interested in signing up for the webinar training series, just click here and I will notify you when you can register.

I could have gone on for another hour or two so I will be offering a more thorough treatment of the workshop via webinar in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on pastorwill.net and riotexas.org for more information.
