584 – Intranets 101

WELSTech is back with the first big project of the new year, building an Intranet, as Martin and Sallie kick off this multi-month topic. In addition, they bring you the news from this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), share Christian Giving and Worship resources, and more. All this, if Sallie can just push the right button!

The discussion:

Let’s build an Intranet – Martin and Sallie kick off a new series focused on the ins and outs of Intranets for ministry. The goal is to build sample church and school Intranets over the next several months, and listeners are invited to build along with us. Today’s discussion lays the ground work for the effort by answering the important what, why, where, and who questions.
