Church IMAG Directors – You Are A Worship Leader

To: Church IMAG Video Directors Whether you realize it or not, you are a worship leader. But, I have no musical ability and I don’t even sing in the shower for fear that some one might accidentally hear me and claw their ears off so that they never have to hear me again! It doesn’t […]

New series promo – White Flag

There are times when we get into preparations for a new series at Seacoast Church that the metaphors come very easily; so was the case as we ramped up for our next teaching series, White Flag; based on the premise that to truly find victory in Christ, we must surrender our own will and ways to […]

Confessions of a Church Video Director – The Dumbest Thing I ever Said

Today I uttered what may have been the dumbest words I have ever strung together: I wish I had time to pray. What? This morning, I had time to: Shower and get ready for work. Make (and wait for) coffee. Stop by the bank on the way to the office. Set-up and light the studio […]

Fuel

I drive a 2000 Ford Explorer with mileage north of 140,000… to say that this is the point in ownership where the parts start to go south would be a bit of an understatement; less than a month ago, I had to forfeit nearly the equivalent of a mortgage payment to replace the radiator and […]

He still redeems

This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. Isaiah 48:17 I missed a lot of time with my wife and daughters while I worked in sports television, but […]

It’s about us – Echo 2011

That title will probably rub some people wrong, but if you go to the conference website, you’ll see that it is “an event for artists, geeks, and storytellers”… so it’s about that ‘us’. Let me start by saying that I was not asked to post something about Echo, I’m sure that no one there even […]

Guest Post – The Four Year Mark

While I realize that this blog has evolved into a church media spot, today I will go a bit more personal. You see, today marks 4 years since my mother passed away after a brutal fight with lung cancer. Most days, I feel like I’ve gotten passed most of the sadness, but then April 26th. […]

Confessions of a Church Video Director: Run Over

This post will start with a visual aid, a moment from my career as a TV camera operator back in 2003 when I was covering an NBA game in Phoenix, AZ. (Embedded video HERE) That was my job. Right on the court, just inches from large athletes moving at top speed. This clip shows just […]

Production and Purpose – 1/3/11

Please, don’t just watch this… absorb this. It is one of the most beautifully told stories I have ever seen. Get to a place where you can take 8 minutes and let this story hit you. Maybe watch it twice: Once for the story and then a second time for the wonderful production value. Thoughts?

Does every story end with “happily ever after”?

I have been working in and around church and ministry for more than half of my life, and I think that I was influenced early on to believe that every great testimony had to end with everything that was once bad now turned around and great… Yay, God! Now, I don’t ever want to be […]
