iphone video captureVideo is no longer optional to a ministry’s online presence!

I recently posted 6 Reasons Why You Should Think Through Your Video Presence on my own blog and received a comment that was even better than the post, since it clearly outlined how easy and powerful it is to set up an online video presence.

Jamie Munson Interview: Why I Wrote “Money”

Money, God or Gift by Jamie Munson“Most Christians in the U.S. just don’t get it: 20 percent give literally nothing, and the vast majority give very little.”–Jamie Munson

The RE-Think Blogference is starting “Books,” a new category to help start ministry conversations and connect ministry starters. Jamie Munson, the Executive Pastor at Mars Hill Church, graciously agreed to answer some questions about his new book “Money,” as well as some encouragement for leading students in stewarding money well.

Permission to Innovate: Guest Post by Keith Seabourn

Innovation takes many forms. It may look like a new use for an old tool; a new tool for an old need, or more commonly, a new tool for a new need.

Christian Maureira, the national director for Campus Crusade for Christ in Chile, innovated. He saw a creative opportunity to engage 33 miners with the reality of Jesus Christ. He took a common tool (the Jesus film in audio) and innovated a strategy to reach them 2660 feet below ground. And we all applauded his creativity, his courage, and his innovation.

Permission to Innovate! Guest Post by Judy Douglass

So we learned to look for what he wanted to accomplish. We had freedom to think and ask,” Is there a better way to reach his objective?” If we had an innovative way to go forward, he was always open to it.

One of the best ways I’ve found to look for the better way for more effective ministry is to look for the intersect. Where does God’s Word/our mission intersect with the interests/needs of our target audience?

Permission to Innovate: Guest Post by Steve Douglass

As you know, innovation has been a hallmark for Campus Crusade from the very beginning. Bill Bright’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to begin on the college campus at UCLA. In the 1950s, few ministries or churches were focusing on students. It was a new and strategic idea.

Back in the 1960s there was no simple booklet that people could use as an “audio visual tool” to help them present the gospel personally. God used Bill Bright to distill what he was saying to students into what became the “Four Laws.” In the late 1970s there was no widely translated, very biblical, feature-length film on the life of Christ.

  • Charlotte, a campus director, was the first to run a campaign that was being deployed on multiple campuses across the country.  She shared her insights, best practices and learnings on a message board accessible to all staff .  Many other directors read her post and adjusted their strategies for greater effectiveness based on Charlotte’s feedback and experience.

Facebook for MPD not Farmville

If Ministry Partner Development is relationship driven, then we have a great chance to leverage Facebook to foster deeper connections to our ministry partners.

Not earth shattering news, right? But I bet a lot of us haven’t taken the time to be intentional with Facebook yet. I would suggest that with 30 minutes of initial set-up and a few minutes a week you can help your MPD partners connect with you and your ministry better and in a more timely manner. Here’s how…
