New Web Site and Forums to Be Launched Soon! The internet is always changing and Ridge Point is changing its website to include everything the old one had and more!
I had planned to announce soon that I had ended my involvement in the Ridge Point web site, and had transitioned ownership over to the church staff. There are a few reasons for this - personally we’ve been feeling called to do something different in our church and spiritual life, and there had also been a small number of disagreements over the use of technology at Ridge Point. I had turned all the source files and all related documents over to the church staff, with the expectation that they would continue with the current site, and possibly look for another pMachine developer to help with any incremental changes needed.
Needless to say, learning that the intent is to now completely change the site was a shock - one that greatly saddens me, and not just because I’ve logged more than 370 hours over the last two years researching, designing, building, and training user and content contributors on the current site.
And I’m not just sad because I still believe the current site is the right site for Ridge Point - based on the things we learned during the research, based on the internet community feedback we got after the launch, and based on some of the comments from the church itself.
No, I’m mostly sad because I truly feel like the current site is the one God wanted for Ridge Point - based on the prayers sent up while building it, and based on the fact that it turned out the way it did - way above what I feel like I’m capable of alone.
So - just for the record - my involvement in all aspects of the current Ridge Point site is officially terminated. I have no knowledge of or participation in any technology decisions made from this point forward, and I would covet your prayers for myself personally - that I can “let go and let God”, and for the staff members at Ridge Point who are now making technology decisions for the church - that they keep the site users first and foremost in mind, seek good counsel, and commit the site to prayer.
