YOU ARE THE EYES THROUGH WHICH CHRIST LOOKS COMPASSION ON THIS WORLD. YOU ARE THE FEET WITH WHICH CHRIST WALKS TO DO GOOD. YOU ARE THE HANDS THROUGH WHICH CHRIST BLESSES ALL THE WORLD.
(TERESA OF ÁVILA, ADAPTED)
Technology is more than everyday tools and resources for our churches, schools, and organizations; it is the “digital” eyes, hands, and feet of our faith communities and institutions. These tools and resources can articulate our spiritual stories, help grow our communities as lively centers of faith, and empower those we serve through meaningful connections, communications, and cultivation.
At Rite One Consulting, we serve churches, schools, and organizations seeking to enhance and sustain their technology resources, while also being mindful of budgetary constraints and the finite available people resources within their institution. An investment in technology is an investment in building up the Kingdom of God because we are opening new doors for the Spirit of transformation.
We have developed an array of technology tools and resources designed to help our clients build, measure, and maintain momentum. However, what makes us truly unique is how we tailor technology solutions to meet the needs of the churches, schools, and organizations we serve, including small and medium-sized institutions that need innovative, cost-effective, and uncomplicated solutions.
If you have a technology need other than the services listed below, please do not hesitate to contact us. We welcome the opportunity to customize our technology consulting services to the needs and vision of our clients.
WEBSITE DESIGN, DEPLOYMENT, AND MAINTENANCE TRAINING
We build and deploy professional custom websites for our clients. Sites are also fully optimized for mobile devices and tablets and built on “end-user”-friendly content management systems (CMS) like Wix. Unlike most designers, we do not just “build a site” and “turn it over” to the client; instead, we work in partnership with our clients to train and support staff and lay leaders to manage, update, and enhance their website. We encourage our clients to deploy a website that is both “inward-focused” on members’ experiences and “outward-centric” on creating a digital evangelism tool to attract new members, increase their local community impact, and share the Good News.
SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERIENCE
Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, WhatsApp, TikTok, Messenger, WeChat, blogging… and the list goes on. Rite One focuses on scaling and calibrating your social media channels so that your content is accessible, relevant, and regularly updated. Allow our team to help you be the best version of yourselves online.
DIGITAL WORSHIP, MEETINGS, AND EVENTS
During the COVID pandemic and beyond, Rite One Consulting is committed to assisting churches, schools, and organizations with their digital media needs. With wide-scale vaccination deployment and decreased transmission risks, there is a trend and need to deploy a “hybrid” digital model as communities look to return to in-person gatherings but also to maintain their digital presence. Rite One Consulting is actively working with clients to develop and deploy cost-effective solutions to meet this emerging hybrid need for worship, meetings, and events.
One of the most critical assets of a church is its membership database. It is an extension of the faith community and an essential resource for pastoral care leaders. The database allows for meaningful connections to be established, maintained, and deepened. Rite One Consulting can offer a variety of database solutions for any size congregation. Most importantly, we can help design and deploy the database solution and train staff and lay leaders to use and maintain this vital asset efficiently.
WEB-BASED NEWCOMER ORIENTATION AND MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Technology does not grow churches, schools, and organizations; meaningful and intentional connections do! In this era, we all utilize the internet and social media to research, collaborate, and stay connected with those things and communities that matter to us. Unfortunately, too many churches do not maximize their website and social media accounts’ potential to connect with and orientate newcomers and new members. Rite One Consulting can assist your team in enhancing your newcomers’ and new members’ digital experience.
EMAIL MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS
Thriving churches, schools, and organizations regularly connect with their constituents through email marketing tools like Constant Contact and MailChimp. Those tools are deployed with various success levels and often are not consistent with the institution’s brand and vision. Excellent email marketing communication is well-crafted, on-brand, vision-centric, vibrant, and stylistically appealing. Rite One Consulting can help your institution improve its email marketing and communication practices through our design consulting and training services.
ONLINE FORMS AND SURVEYS
Do you need to generate better feedback or gather more useful data for your church, school, or organization? If so, Rite One Consulting can help design professional-looking forms and surveys with a simple online form builder that can speed up and simplify your workflow and automate complex tasks. Our solutions allow you to securely and easily collect vital information that seamlessly integrates into other software solutions.
FACILITY MANAGEMENT AND CALENDARING SOLUTIONS
Unified facility management and calendar solutions do not need to be expensive or technically overwhelming. However, manipulating Google Calendar or other resources to be an actual event and resource allocation management system is usually not the ideal solution. Save time, money, and frustration by deploying a dedicated facility management and calendar solution. Rite One Consulting can help your institution select and deploy a solution that fits your needs and budget. We will also train and support your staff and lay leaders as system managers.
AUDIO/VISUAL CONSULTATION, DEPLOYMENT, AND TRAINING
The quality of your audio and visual solutions can make an extraordinary impact on your worship services, meetings, and events. Rite One Consulting offers a range of services, including system design consulting, component specifications, and training for your audio and visual needs. A/V solutions can be a significant investment; thus, we work with our clients to develop professional solutions that are affordable, scalable, and “end-user”- friendly. The Rite One team has decades of experience with all audio/visual facets—as worship and event leaders, technicians, musicians, and worshipers.
