The Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch's WEB/Information Technology Ministry seeks to be the center of IT solutions by providing system management, system administration, technical support and training for the advancement of the commission found in Matthew 28:19-20.
The WEB/IT Ministry’s goal is to ensure these services are provided in an effective, efficient and timely manner to allow GBF church to evangelize and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to residents, not only of our Antioch community, but throughout the world.
Web/IT Ministry is any and every way that Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch can or could reach out to members, visitors, seekers and leaders through a variety of Web and Internet technology tools.
If you need more information about the WEB/IT Ministry or would like to join, contact Bro. Anthony Randolph at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at (925) 522-2017
Most people think of a Web/IT ministry as having a website and internet access, but delineated below you will find there are three developing, evolving, and dynamic areas that constitute Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch (GBF)'s Web/IT Ministry.
Specifically, the Web/IT Ministry is about proactively building dynamic, interactive, multi-layered activities and services that expand the church's reach to connect with billions of users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Thus, creating an instrument so that any person, anytime and anywhere can become a disciple of Jesus Christ and enter into a life-changing, world-transforming journey of faith, hope and love.
The Ministry is divided up into three different areas.
Web ministry adapts the tools of the Internet and resources of the world-wide Web to fulfill the church's mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It makes use of the vast communication and information cyber-highway to connect with 2.9 billion people
Since the "Web/IT Ministry" is more than having a Web presence or website, GBF Web/IT Ministry uses the Internet tools of the 21st century to enhance and expand the church's ministry. Specifically, these tools/applications are: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
The IT Ministry helps supply Information Technology solutions and training for the GBF members, ministries, on-site staff and associated GBF organizations. To do this we work to form partnerships with all groups and ministries throughout the Church.
