Software Tools for Pastors
I’m meeting with a group of young pastors and leaders this week and I wanted to share some of the software tools that help me stay organized. Here’s a quick list of the software I use the most on a day-to-day basis.
- Evernote – this is an incredible note taking software that I’ve blogged about before. It allows you to sync notes from your laptop to your ipod to your phone. It even recognizes and searches the text in imported pictures. I keep folders for sermon notes, meeting notes, and sermon illustrations. It’s a great program that you should definitely check out.
- Remember the Milk – this is an advanced to-do list. It has tons of options to keep you organized and on-track.
- Youversion This is one of the best online Bibles. There are iphone and blackberry versions and you can even contribute notes and videos.
- Biblegateway I also use this online Bible when I need to find stuff fast. I also like the IVP New Testament Commentaries that they have available.
- BlueLetterBible I use this online Bible for Greek word studies
- Logos – I think this is the best desktop Bible software for serious Bible study. And they now have a mac version.
- Google Reader – I use this to read through several ministry blogs.
- Twitter – A great way to stay connected with other ministers and friends throughout the day.
What else do you use on a consistently?
