A little more than 2 years ago I came on staff at Community Bible Church on a trial basis to launch CBC Online. The "trial" quickly ended and the ministry grew faster than anyone could have imagined possible. I also have had the privilege of serving as the Interim Young Adult Pastor for about a year as well which was a great opportunity working alongside Chris Emmitt and Phil Vega with Two42.
One of the exciting things about working at CBC is that things are always changing and you're never really able to get too comfortable with what you're doing. About two weeks ago I was offered a new opportunity at CBC to join the Executive Team and expand my role becoming the WebPastor. This is an exciting new role to really expand what I was doing with CBC Online (now Online Church) creating a seamless approach to everything we do as a church online.
I of course accepted and we began moving forward with our new web strategy. We will be partnering with Plain Joe Studios tapping into their expertise when it comes to strategy, design, and development. They will begin building our core web presence at CommunityBible.com and helping to provide a seamless flow from that site to all other online platforms including Social Networks, Online Church, and the development of a mobile App.
Speaking of a mobile app, we have also entered into an agreement with iGivings in the development of the first CBC App. This is an exciting partnership to work with the great people at iGivings and develop a mobile app with incredible functionality for users on the go or while they sit in church. We have looked at many mobile app possibilities over the past two years, but the situation was never right and immediately after connecting with iGivings it was a natural fit to partner with their great team of developers expanding our ministry to a native mobile app.
I can't be more excited about this new opportunity and the privilege that I have to lead these new ministry efforts at CBC. I'm humbled to be trusted with such a task and honored to serve such a great church under such great leadership. I will look forward to sharing with you our learnings as we take our next steps and see where God leads us in the coming months and years.
