Ft. Wayne Christians
Ft. Wayne Wiki... working & learning together.
Today's new collaborative tool for working & learning together.... is a 'wiki'
It's the Hawaiin term for 'quick'. They're quick, easy and FREE -- a perfect tool for learning about collaborative Christian efforts, city-by-city, neighborhood-by-neighborhood.
Today, Fort Wayne chimes in...
Thanks Jon & Adam for helping grow the Fort Wayne Christian Wiki.
