Dear Church, Can We Please Stop Calling it an “Experience”?

While I have no way of going back to discover when church services began being called “experiences”, I can start a lobby suggesting that we stop calling them experiences. The more that I’ve thought about this the more I am convinced that we are incapable of creating an experience for one simple reason: Experiences are far too […]

Easter 2014 – Video Round Up

This Easter was a little odd for me in that it’s the first time in 8 years that I wasn’t working for a church. I was, however, keeping an eye on social media and watching what was being posted in the way of video for Good Friday and Easter services. Here are a few that […]

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 […]

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?

This picture is of an odd little brick building on the backside of […]

Stage Change

So, we needed to do a stage change… What’s the best way to get started?

A Not So Silent Night

For our Christmas project this year we decided to do a modern telling of the Christmas Story; a young, pregnant couple on a road trip, unable to find a room for the night. Our project was used to set up our pastor‘s message in our Christmas Eve services at Seacoast Church. 5 different locations 4 […]

Video Story – Find a visual focal point

At Seacoast, we’re doing a short sermon series based on the Book of Jonah, so telling a story on video about someone running from God’s call would be great for a sermon illustration. Finding the story wasn’t difficult; it involves the wife of one of our pastors getting involved with helping people in human trafficking… I just didn’t […]
