Church Video Announcements; a Love/Hate Relationship

I like church video announcements because I see them as a great way to communicate things in a way that someone standing at a podium reading the bulletin can’t. I hate church video announcements because they are often viewed or esteemed to be doing something that they’re incapable of doing. Not to mention that they seem to […]

Stewardship – The Red Line

In this time of financial instability, much has been made about good stewardship when it comes to our money and other resources. What about our most important resource, people? Money, tools, time… these are all diminishing resources; we always wish that we had more and are constantly trying to figure out how to make best […]

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 […]

Tips for Church Video Announcements

I recently checked my stats and was surprised to find out how many people land here looking for information about doing church video announcements. I love helping churches communicate well!

Are you sure you want to do video announcements?

11% Day

It has been said that we humans are using less than 10% of our brains. I was never much of a science-person so I have no idea how such a figure is even quantified… whatever. Stay with me… When I have a day off, I like to spend the morning by myself; I make a pot […]

Out take therapy

Oh, looky there… a blog! This poor little slice of the internet has been so neglected. I really need to get back in the habit of regular posts. My apologies to the 2 or 3 of you who noticed that I’ve been so absent here. So, I’ll kick things back off with a little slice […]

Pursuing Christ, Creating Art

I haven’t done a ‘books worth reading’ post in a while, but I am really excited to share this with my readers. I’m quite sure that I’ve never read a book like the one I’m recommending now; My friend Gary Molander has written a book for anyone who works in the production of church related […]

Church Video Announcements; An on-going conversation

I struggled with calling this post ‘an on-going conversation’, it’s probably more of an obsession. While I would never classify myself as a communications expert, I’m passionate about communicating well within the church. I’ve posted about this passion before (See 8 Simple Rules for Video Announcements), and I’d really like to hear from other video […]

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 […]
