What is a circuit rider? These days it normally means an IT specialist that works in or for the voluntary sector providing support, consultation, training and strategic advice to the voluntary sector. Circuit Riders are also known as e-riders.
Circuit Riding has its roots in the deep south of the USA at the turn of the 20th century. There were not enough church ministers for the number of churches. So they rode from church to church (on a circuit) providing religious comfort and ministering to the local parishioners.
