Willow Creek here we come…

In just under one week we are headed to the Willow Creek Arts Conference…

I am really excited and look forward to networking, learning a ton, and connecting more with some of the RCC Arts Directors…

If you are going to the WC Arts Conference… Post a reply and maybe we can do a meet and greet in the WC Lobby one day…

Have fun if you are going!!!

Doodle 4 Google

I just ran across this on Google.com.

“Doodle 4 Google is a competition where we invite K-12 students to reinvent Google’s homepage logo. This year we asked U.S. kids to doodle around the theme “What if…?”

Well, the entries are in, and we couldn’t be more impressed. We received thousands of wonderful doodles, and choosing 40 finalists for the public vote had to be one of the most difficult but enjoyable jobs at Google in the past few weeks.

So the kids have done their part, and we’ve done ours. Now it’s your turn to help out by picking your favorite doodles. Your votes will help us select a national winner to replace our usual logo on the Google homepage on May 22, 2008.”

Be sure and go and vote. I thought some of these kids graphics/drawing were REALLY REALLY good.



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.

My class project…

Okay so I have been working on a HUGE class project for the past 6 weeks and it has about 4-5 more weeks to go…

I am in charge of the Marketing Team and we have been busting through all kinds of work…

I wanted to post about the logo that I created for the “organization”… I really like and think it came off very well…
