Communication is no longer just talking to someone in person or over the phone. It has become SO much bigger than that. In today’s world people are connected and communicate globally as we rapidly see advancements in technology, the Internet, social networking applications and the exploding mobile market. Because of this, we must be constantly looking for new and innovative ways to leverage these trends to effectively communicate well to a hurting world.
It isn’t something we could do, its something we must do.
Better yet. Its something we get to do.
I began blogging back in February 2006 under the name WebDrivenChurch.com. It was my way to capture my thoughts, inspirations and ramblings about web technology in the church.
In 2010 I changed my blog to just DarylMcMullen.com and moved to the Wordpress.org platform.
And in 2012 I simplified even further. DarylMcMullen.com is now on the Tumblr platform for the ultimate convenience and simplicity.
But that still doesn’t answer who I am and what makes me tick. So allow me to expand on that for a few minutes:
In a previous life I worked in the mental health field as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I worked with individuals/families in outpatient, inpatient hospitalization and everything in between.
While doing this I picked up web design as a hobby. Over time my interest grew and I was encouraged by a close friend to use these “talents” to help the church.
In 2004 I began serving as a volunteer in the Communications Department at Granger Community Church. For two years I helped keep the websites running as the church readied itself to launch completely redesigned versions of their two websites.
In 2006 I was asked to join the team full time and serve as Web Director. Aside from God and my family, Granger is my top priority.
Today I work with an incredible team of dedicated professionals. We cast vision for, maintain and oversee all aspects of both gccwired.com and wiredchurches.com. And in recent days have been able to take on shorter term projects like blog redesigns and mini-sites related to the vision of the church.
I also began doing freelance work on the side in 2006 and love to engage in amateur digital photography and HD video along with SCUBA and Ice Hockey when time permits.
