The Alabama Freewill Baptist Children's Home has been using XOOPS for over a year now. Without any special programming ability, their staff regularly update the site with news, pictures, information about the ministry, and an event calender.
One of the strengths of XOOPS is that people who have few skills in web practice and usage can go live in a very short time with a site that features good content, a secure and practical interface, and little training in terms of operation and content publication. Their webmaster was given about five hours of hands-on training, at most, with no prior web site content or usage education. The site has fresh content each month and is finding a growing number of visitors in a demographic that has previously had little contact with the internet. Moreover, they have learned that they no longer need to depend on a webmaster to publish their materials when he/she gets around to it.
As the site continues to stay online, it is hoped that more visitors will become interested and seek to become a part of this very special ministry.
