The St. Paul’s Church web site uses WordPress as a content management system. It’s a very popular system. There’s even a WordPress for Dummies book, with a copy available in the church office. The present webmaster (Ollie Jones) will show you the ropes and be available for all the help you need.
The main duties of the volunteer webmaster are to keep the web site up to date, and to post news, information, photos, and audio files about the congregation.
The St. Paul’s web site is designed to be a community effort. A volunteer webmaster can recruit all kinds of other folks to contribute their work to the site.
A series of articles on how to contribute are on the web site. You can see them here. http://www.stpauls-nbpt.org/category/contributing
