Other sites we make use of

We use several other sites to help us with the production of elements of our ministry. We acknowledge them here and list them in case they may be of use to others.

  • Bit.ly. A URL-shortening service we have used to obtain shortened links to some of our internet ministry sites.
  • Box.net. An online storage service we use to house our weekly bulletin. The folder from Box.net is embedded in a Blogger blog for our users to access and we tap into the folder's RSS capabilities to generate an RSS feed notification when each new week's bulletin is posted.
  • Conduit. We used Conduit to build our Internet ministry web browser toolbar.
  • Digg.com. A site through which users can recommend our content to others.
  • Feed43. As service we use to generate an RSS reed from the "Recent News" section of our web site. The tool enables any part of any web site to be turned into an RSS feed.
  • Google Analytics. This supplies usage statistics for several of our ministries.
  • Google Feedburner. Many of our RSS feeds are processed through Feedburner, which increases compatibility and gives access to many useful additional features, including usage statistics.
  • Meebo. We use Meebo, embedded in our live broadcast blogger pages, so that viewers can contact internet ministry team members and ask the teacher questions during the Discipleship Classes.
  • OpenSong. Our live broadcasts use this tool to supply Scriptures and Hymn words.
  • Ref.ly. A service supplied by Logos.com, giving Bible references in a shortened URL format. The links take you to the Bible on the Logos web site. You can specify the Bible version that the link points to.
  • StumbleUpon. A site through which users can recommend our site to others.
  • Uservoice.com. We use this site for our feedback forum.
  • Yammer. This works in conjunction with a domain name to supply private, Twitter-like communications between account holders.
