Buying New Tech Stuff for Your Church
Churches are notorious for making bad decisions when it comes to audiovisual and other technical equipment and software. I’ve seen it first hand numerous times. Expensive church membership management software purchased without a proper going-over by the proper people. Cheap, under-equipped computers purchased to save a buck. The projector in our main room is not powerful enough to cut through the ambient room light because it was purchased from an office supply person who sold classroom projectors.
I could continue the list, but I figure you get the point. Churches tend to either spend way more than necessary on way more features than they will ever need, or they scrimp to save money and end up spending twice as much to correct the mistake.
Steve Caton has a good article over on Church Tech Today to give you some food for thought before your next purchase. If you need further help, contact me.
