Every volunteer should be a member of this Group
God has blessed us with many people coming forward and volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering go to Volunteer Opportunities and fill out the volunteer application form which will enter you into the system. When that is complete return here and select a task you would like to help on or you can post ideas that you think would be helpful as a suggested new task.
You were asked to create an account on the forum and to introduce yourself on forum section 7-Bible.org Volunteer tasks and community Discussion We will use this group to discuss tasks and the forum 7 in interact in a more peronal way and to help each other with problems that come up. For example: if you think that translation is your thing, what languages do you know that you could share and what articles do you think would be the best for your people.
We are still experimenting with the best way to assign tasks to our volunteers and collaborate with them. This week (9/13/09) we decided to use this group function for staff and volunteers to better facilitate the interaction and collaboration.

There are a lot of web based ministries out there.

Possibly even test and review the items and maybe even show a best use practices. Like how to install a daily verse widget or what is the latest script that allows video to play on multi browsers.

I hope this is the right place for this. Following the instructions from Dave's email, I joined this group and and attempted to link my facebook account. I noticed the "Facebook Connect" tab in my account profile and, selecting it, it reads, "Your account is not linked with a Facebook account or you are not authorized to edit the Facebook connect settings of this account." How do I link my account? Also, I was not able to find the i.m. funtion that was advertised.
There are several places on the web that discuss web evangelism. We need someone to pull that together
and lead a group here on users so all of us associated with web sites can do a more effective job
some places to start
