churches live on charity.
If they use all their collection money to buy a new computer and your friend breaks it then they aren't just going to turn their backs on all the hard work and fund raising that they did to get those machines.
If your friend wants to work for the church then he should do it. but if he messes up then he will be liable.
if he wants to start a business then my advice would be:
Get public liability and indemnity insurances -that will protect him from his own mistakes.
Give the church a good deal, (charge very little).
rely on the word of mouth advertising to grow your business organically.
