Where Web, Tech & Worship Meet!

Training and Education

IT4Worship sees education and training as a critical success factors for our clients.  Our prime objective is to pass on the knowledge we have to your volunteers in a way that is meaningful and useful to them.  If at the end of our engagement with you, we are the only ones who have a clear understanding of your technology, then we have failed you. Bearing this in mind, we make sure to leave you with a manual that:

  • Summarizes not only what we’ve done, but how your paid or volunteer staff can do it as well.
  • Is used as the basis of the education component of each of our services
  • Is used to  test your volunteers’ knowledge to ensure the information provided can be put to effective use.
  • Becomes a resource for your further training efforts independent of our involvement

If we identify gaps, we work with your staff to fill those gaps so your training investment provides high returns into the future.

We provide training in:
•    Hardware,
•    Software,
•    Computing technology,
•    Networking
•    Sound systems

The PinPoint Methodology

We use a “pinpoint” approach (provide exactly what your volunteers/staff need to know when you need to know it)  to our training versus a “kitchen sink” approach (throw a lot of information at your people in hopes that something sticks).

Experience has shown that when volunteers are equipped with the skills they need, they become comfortable with the task and its associated technology.  The result is they are much more likely to both retain, use, and most importantly pass on the knowledge they have obtained to other volunteers.

Wayne Sankarlal created our website at St.David's Presbyterian Church on Danforth Rd. Scarborough (phone 416-267-7897). He did an outstanding job.  He also provided training to staff and excellent followup services throughout.

I could have built our website and done a reasonable job. Almost every congregation has someone who could. However, there's already more than enough work to go around. IT4Worship did a great job of listening to our needs, asking us good questions, and then turning out a web presence that meets what we need. The ongoing support for our website content writers is quick and thorough. IT4Worship keeps us regularly informed on the progress of security updates and on any work that might affect people accessing our site. IT4Worship is definitely worth considering as you seek new ways to let the world know about your community of faith.

I have been blessed by the great gifts that Wayne has given on several occasions;  A short time ago I seemed to be plagued by a message that seemed to come up on my computerscreen... Daily! Wayne eliminated it  remotely. He knows computers well. His costs are reasonable, and when he does anything he explains what he has done in layman's terms- I need all the help I can get! I would, without hesitation, recommend his services. I feel secure knowing that Wayne is only a phone call away! Wayne also looks after our church's internet and computer needs!

I would like to recommend Wayne Sankarial for help with your website. Wayne listened carefully to what we hoped to do and then followed through with some exciting changes. He is very well versed in what attracts attention and is more than willing to be a hands on helper to get you going.  We are thrilled with our changes and happy to share his expertise with others.

We recently contracted IT4Worship to give our church website a ‘facelift’. We are thrilled with the end results! Wayne was knowledgeable, efficient, available, and listened to our unique needs as a church. He worked with us to meet the goals we had in mind within a short time span. We would definitely work with this company again.”

I would like to thank Wayne for all the support to questions I have. He is always eager to find a solution to the problems I present. Even though Wayne has been asked many questions over and over, he never makes you feel you are a burden. I would definitely recommend Wayne for any of your IT requirements.
