Update from Todd

PullinghairoutI promised I'd keep you updated on the switchover process to the new website.  It's going slow but sure.  I started updating all the oldest entries (staritng in September of 2004).  So far, I'm up to July of 2005.  The good news is I only have a year's worth of entries to go; the bad news is there are more entries during this period than during the earlier days!  I'm hoping to have enough done to open the new site for beta users (our MMI Inner Circle members; who, by the way, gave TONS of input to this design) by late next week.

I do have a couple of requests during this time of transition that you all might be able to help me with.

1.  I'm spending most all of my time on the transition; so I have little time to research new articles and resources.  If you come across anything that you find interesting and you think I should know about to include on MMI, please drop me an email with the link.  (you can email me at trhoades@mondaymorninginsight.com).

2.  I'm finding that I have a couple areas that I could really use some help and additional resources in.  If you know of any great resources (or would like to help write some) about the following subjects, please let me know:

Facilities Management
Church Planting
Finances & Stewardship
Vision Values & Mission
Family Balance for Pastors
Volunteer Recruitment
Small Churches
Youth & Children's Ministry
Multi-Cultural Ministry
Discipleship / Spiritual Growth

We've always covered these subjects at MMI to some extent; but now, each category will have it's own page; and I'd love to 'beef up' the content in each of these sections.  If you can help; please let me know.

3.  I'm also bringing back an old category called "Ask MMI"; so if you have any questions on any ministry topics, please feel free to email them to me; and I'll try my best to find an answer for you.

4.  Finally, the new website will have a larger section for book reviews.  If any of you have written book reviews that you would allow us to publish; or would be interesting in writing a few short book reviews for the new site; please let me know asap!

I think that's it for now... I'll try to continue to keep you up to date on how things are going.  Thanks for your prayers during this stage.  I love the developement and vision and dreaming process.  I get a little discouraged during the monotanous work that needs to go in to it to make it a success.  :)

Thanks!  Have a great day!

First Name:



Thanks for all you do - I appreciate it, and now that things are calming down for me a bit, I will be lurking and posting more.

I've missed it.

And I look forward to the new site!

I can help on the childrens/ Youth if you wish ... as a YS moderator/ Family and youth pastor - it might help.

Hey Todd, MMI made my resources list. Guess that counts as providing free advertising huh? LOL!!
