FULL DOUBLE SEMINAR INFORMATION:
If your church needs a program to bring your staff into the computer age, I recommend that you divide the seminar into two sections - one for a small group of 5 to 20 computer users that make up your core church staff and one for all teachers (any number) - even those who don't use computers. Get the maximum value out of the seminar for all your ministers and teachers!

COSTS: Costs for the seminar vary. To save money on travel, I would be willing to stay in a members home overnight and eat meals provided. This would mean the church would just have to pay for air flight, etc. I would fly out of St. Louis. I can take care of my own notebook computer and can even take care of presentation equipment if necessary. If you want the computer training then the church will need to provide computers and PowerPoint software for the students. I recommend at least one computer per two students.
