Backing up your personal as well as church office computers is something you don’t want to sideline. While your church may utilize cloud-based, also known as web-based, church management software, you’re sure to have lots of other files and valuable church information that resides on your church computer hard drive.

Taking a moment to review and select a cloud backup option is a great way to ensure that your church data won’t be lost. You’d be up a creek come time to prepare that print bulletin if you’d lost the Publisher or Photoshop file. Your technical team would have to scramble if their worship slides weren’t available to prepare for Sunday services. Let’s not even think about what would happen if you lost your sermon notes. Backing up your on-site servers is most important.

Below are 5 online computer backup solutions to consider:

Carbonite

iDrive

For non-profits, data loss can be devastating. Documents like grant applications, charity event details, donor databases, financial statements to membership lists – everything is stored on your computer. Imagine losing them all in an instant. Rebounding from such data losses can not only be difficult, but really expensive as well.
