churchadmin Group

What is the churchadmin?

ChurchAdmin was the dream of TCN member Lynn (Roberts) Osborne who serves the Hyde Park United Methodist Church in Tampa, Florida.  From her idea churchadmin was established on the groups.yahoo.com platform and from 2000 to 2020 support peer collaboration to over 3500 church leaders. In 2020 yahoo closed their group platforms and TCN moved the group to its church platform on groups.io

What is a listserv?

The churchadmin group is a "listserv" which is defined as a group of individuals who are connected by email around a common interest. When someone in the group sends an email, everyone in the groups gets a copy. If you are interested in the subject or have an answer to the question, you are free to respond. If it's not your thing, just delete the message and move on. Participants can control the flow of email by choosing a copy of every email, a summary of email daily or weekly. Emails, polls, files shared and other information are available through a web interface.

Why should I join?

The listserv will provide you with quick feedback on a subject you are currently working with. Suppose your session or pastor asks you to come up with a policy on cell phone use by next Tuesday. By posting a question to listserv, you can have quick response from others who have already established such a policy. Peer learning and just-in-time answers are great resource. Never start with a blank sheet of paper. Learn for others' experience while sharing you own experience and knowledge.
