Great resources from a great company: VisualWorship.com.
There are some cool new resources for Mother’s Day in our Seasonal Store.
I’ll highlight these:
Well, it was an adventure, but I’m back. Last Thursday and Friday I was at the Buzz Conference in Washington DC. Hosted by National Community Church, which meets in Union Station, this conference was well done and did a great job of connecting church leaders. You can read some more comments and thoughts on the conference at ChurchMarketingSucks.
Thursday night I was one of the judges for the first ever Buzz Film Festival. We reviewed over 40 entries from churches all over the country. Great stuff going on in the local church. Very encouraging to see. Don’t forget that we have a church section on our website, where you browse and purchase some amazing videos or if your church produces quality in-house videos, you can contact me and find out more info. Get your resources out to the world!
I stayed over and led worship at my old church in Northern VA on Sunday – that was a very special day for me. They have recently upgraded from PowerPoint to MediaShout, so it was nice to see more variety in their worship with the addition of loopable backgrounds.
Last week I (Greg) was in Las Vegas teaching at NAB. I had a great time meeting church leaders from around the world. The highlight for me was a class I did on Presentation Software. This was a first, as I invited representatives from MediaShout, EasyWorship, LiveWorship and ProPresenter to demo their product in my class. Class participants were able to see and evaluate these companies side by side.
I couldn’t go to Las Vegas and not take in a show. I, along with Derek Pfeifer from EasyWorship and Brad Herring from Church Production Resources, got to go see the Blue Man Group. They are amazing! We somehow ended up on the very front row, front and center! Talk about a interactive/multi-sensory experience. WOW!
On Sunday I visited Canyon Ridge Christian Church in North Las Vegas. The week before was Easter Sunday, when they had over 9000 people in attendance! God is up to something in “Sin City”. They were in a series entitled “Coming Home: The Return of the Prodigal”. They had a huge backdrop behind them of a long dirt road leading back “home”. I had a great morning of worship there and hope to visit again one day.
