The Geeks and God website has been redesigned with a new look and several new features. The site which is operated by Matt Farina and Bob Christenson and features the Geeks and God Podcast, takes their passion for helping churches and ministries make better use technology to a new level.
Merger with Christian Web Masters Forums
One of the big changes to the site is the merger of the Christian Web Masters forums with the Geeks and God forums. For years, the Christian Web Masters forums has been a great place for the administrators of church and ministry sites to get and give help with technical issues.
For personal reasons, Sean Buscay, the admin of the Christian Web Masters forums was no longer able to manage the forums. but rather than simply allow them to whither and die as so many other sites have, Sean helped facilitate their merger with Geeks and God. The two communities share a similar focus and their merger should create some great synergy and even better discussion about ministry and technology issues.
I’ve been reading and posting in the Christian Web Masters forums for several years now, and I’ve also been listening to the weekly Geeks and God podcast most weeks during one of my morning runs. So, its cool to see the two joining forces.
New Reviews and Tutorials Sections
In addition to a new design and the forum merger, the new Geeks and God site also features a technology review section and a tutorials section. Both of these sections are for members of the G&G community to post reviews and tutorials. Because the site is brand new, there isn’t much content there right now. The usefulness of these new sections will depend on the quality of the contributions from the community.
The new website with enhanced profiles, increased prominence of the forums, and new sections was designed to take some of the spotlight off of Matt, Bob, and the podcast and put more of it on the G&G community.
In encourage you to check out the new Geeks and God site and let us know what you think.
