I previously served (as a volunteer) for many years at Friendship Christian Reformed Church, in Byron Center, MI, as the church administrator -- I am very much interested in church administration, church culture, and how we get things done in the best way in doing the work assigned to the Church. In addition to being a retired military officer, I have previous experience as a facility manager for a large hospital, an operations manager for a construction company, and, then, as a business owner. I also have previous experience as a deacon and as an elder, to include a term as Council President. I have been a delegate to Synod one time.
I am married, with two grown children (both married). Grandchildren are one of the my greatest enjoyments in life right now.
My hobbies and interests include: Wednesday date days with my wife, sports, computers, elk hunting, cruise vacations.
I am also interested in the use of technology in the church, (church) organizational culture, church order, and (church) organizational structure.
Technology can also help with keeping the doors locked (and avoiding the issue of keys). Use a card access system on one or two exterior doors that your members would use to get into the building...viewposted on: Lock the Doors When You Leave
Bonnie, I agree ... get it on the church website. We did it for the two reasons you mentioned and also as a resource to refer to for our own members.view
