A bunch of updates in one post…

Okay so I have been very very busy… So I wanted to take a minute from the busyness and post a bunch of updates…


It’s over!!! Well for the next couple of weeks… The ending of a semester is always fun, because I am done with those classes forever!!!

I am going to summer school (May 19-June 6 and June 30-July 30). I wanted to get some math classes out of the way.


Well my brother is OFFICIALLY a MARINE!!! I am very very proud of him. He left on Tuesday morning (0140) to go to Marine Combat Training and I already miss him. I won’t get to see him again until July 4th weekend.


Well, Pastor Joey resigned a couple of weeks ago, so I have been helping out more with the service planning and stuff. It’s been really fun though. I have been gotten to really know more of the Arts Leaders and other great people in the church.

Recruit, Recruit, Recruit. I recently challenged all of the Technology/Media Leaders to recruit 1 person a month for the next 4 months. If we can all accomplish this goal, that would be almost 40 new people in ministry. I personally have been recruiting and so far have about 6 new people in ministry, all of which are great people and very talented. I am sooo excited about this new department initiative.

Willow Creek Arts Conference 2008, I am going!!! YEH!!! I am really excited that I am going. Coming this year with me is Tori (Media Production Team Leader) and Marty (Music Director), we are all ready to learn and suck in all the information we can. As a side note: If you are going to the Arts Conference and want to meet up shoot me a comment back and maybe we can do coffee or something, I really want to network and meet other media/technology people.

Well that’s all the updates I have for now… Thanks for taking the time to read my post and looking at my blog…



Classes to come…

So I don’t really talk much about my ministry work on my blog but I felt like this was a really cool idea that Pastor Joey and I came up with. I have recently become more and more stressed out with not having enough volunteers so I asked Pastor Joey if he had any creative ideas. This morning he told about one which we talked through and a great idea came out of it.

So the idea is that the Technology Department of RCC offer some classes to the general congregation and then some classes to people wanting to get involved immediately in serving.

So here’s some of the classes we are thinking about:

  • General Classes
    • Digital Photo Editing (Picasa and Photoshop Elements)
    • How To Make A Great Home Video (Premiere Elements)
    • Blogging and Social Networking 101
    • Making Great Business Presentations
  • Volunteer Training Classes
    • Intro to Stage Lighting
    • Intro to Media Shout
    • Intro to Live Video Cameras
    • Intro to Sound Mixing
    • Intro to Field Production
    • Intro to Video Editing
    • Intro to Graphic Production

I am really excited about getting to teach most of these classes. I really like doing presentations and especially teaching people about anything technology or media related. As we get closer to the actual date of these classes I will give out some more details.
