November 17th - Manage Your Time Better with these 5 Killer iPhone Tricks! (iPhone/iPad)

Do you ever wish you had someone that could teach you…

Who’s teaching?
Rev Dr. Phil Phaneuf, the Pastor of QUMC. Before he went into ministry, Phil was the lead technology instructor for nearly a decade at CompUSA. He holds certified expert training status in Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. He’s been instructing and consulting with people on their Apple and Windows machines for nearly 30 years.

The pastor is teaching? Am I going to hear a sermon in the workshop?
No. The workshop is strictly focused on teaching the latest technology and attempting to make your life easier when relating with people through technology. No gimmicks. (However, he has found praying over a device gets it to work when it starts acting up, lol). But seriously, it’s just a technology workshop.

Will there inevitably be a bait and switch?
No. No bait and switch. It’s not an attempt to convert you. Okay, yes, Phil will actually try to convert you… from windows or android to mac… haha!) The only thing that will come remotely close to a catch (and there is no pressure or anything of that nature!) is that we will have a Saturday afternoon worship service following a half hour of refreshments following the workshop. You are most welcome to stay but again, no strings… come as often as you’d like to the tech workshops and bring your friends!

Why would a church offer this then? I still don’t get it.
Phil has a unique gift for teaching people how to use their technology. He is patient, relatable, and easy to understand when it comes to learning technology. He thinks it’s fun to help people with their mobile computing woes. So QUMC wants to offer these workshops out as a way to connect with people in the community… and the half hour of coffee and refreshments following will give each person an opportunity to connect with other people in the community!
