This is where specific people that are part of the leadership team at Bible Baptist Church interface with each other via the internet.
Most of the communication is through documents that are part of GoogleDocs and Spreadsheets.
There is always direct Email communication between everyone, as well as old fashioned telephone communication.

Besides MS Windows and Vista, I have explored and recommend the Apple iMac as a fantastic ministry computer (iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro), as well as many Linux-based PC's because of all they can do for almost no cost! The only problem with Linux is it is more for the computer "geek" instead of the normal Joe Soap so it can be hard to learn. But beyond that, just having a complete Office Suite of applications, Graphics, Audio editors, Web creation software, etc ALL for FREE is amazing! All of the Linux software works on Apple and Microsoft platforms as well. They include:
Various Linux Distributions that are FREELY available!
If you have an older Intel PC that can't run Windows XP, there may be a way to use it much more effectively with Linux.
