There are a few times every year when attendance at church spikes dramatically. Easter Sunday and Christmas always see more faces than normal. Other times, the church may be sponsoring a conference or hosting a large event. The common experience during all of these times is a large, episodic influx of visitors. This influx creates an opportunity to meet, connect with, and minister to people who are not usually in church or surrounded by the body of Christ, but it may also place a significant strain on the church’s technology infrastructure. With churches placing an increasing dependence upon technology to enable ministry, giving attention to the technology impact generated by attendance spikes is important.
