“Life In A Day is a historic global experiment to create the world’s largest user-generated feature film: a documentary, shot in a single day, by you. On July 24, you have 24 hours to capture a glimpse of your life on camera. The most compelling and distinctive footage will be edited into an experimental documentary film, executive produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald.”–from the Life in a Day promo description

CCC Staff: Have You Taken the Shaping Our Future Survey? Why or Why Not?

Blogger’s Lounge–For Women Only

Have a seat. Grab your favorite drink. Let’s chat. We want to hear about you and your blog. Why do you blog? Where do you blog (your blog address)? What motivates you to blog? What have you learned through blogging? What questions do you have about blogging? Let’s share what we’re doing and grow in something that we love. If you are like me, blogging is an outlet, a place to be creative, a place to collect family memories, and a place to reflect. Me, my thoughts, a blank screen can be so refreshing. You do not have be tech-savvy to join the lounge. We just want to get to know you!

Calling All Students-How Are You Using Social Media in Ministry?

Too smart, too old. I talked to a few of my Chico State students who knew about the blogference and asked them for feedback. They all expressed positive comments about it, but all expressed reservations about commenting. By the way “too smart, too old” are their words, not mine.  I wanted to create space for students to share how they are actually using social media on their campus for ministry. I would ask that if you are not a student to only REPLY to comments, not add your own.

RE-Think Social Media and Raising Support

How many people read your newsletters or open your ministry emails? Do you wish you could ask a professional how to best communicate with ministry partners online? I’m blessed to have not only a social media professional, but a long-time supporter of multiple staff members spend a few minutes sharing  how social media improves your relationships and communication. Steve is the President of IOV Media which “consults individuals and businesses in helping them navigate and succeed in social media/networking. This includes providing social media education, strategic consulting, application develop and more.” He was involved in CCC as a student and has maintained relationships and involvement in CCC since graduation. How awesome is this?

Get Over Yourself

Stop being so shy and start “sharing the wealth” with people all over the globe. You are an expert. Or at the very least you have experience in your context and environment of ministry that no one else has. The even crazier thing is that others want to hear about it.

Solitude as a Path to Develop your Leadership

Before you stick a “Leader” name badge on the next disciple who can share the Four Spiritual Laws without a single mistake, take heed. He can follow the process with excellence. But is he a leader? In our movement, we like to call everyone a “leader.” But then we’re stuck with how to separate the Leaders from the leaders. I’ve been interested in the process of developing Leaders for several years.

Innovating in Evangelism Video Discussion

“Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity, not a threat.” Thanks to all who have read in and commented on the previous two posts on Evangelistic Engagement. I hosted a video conference with Bob Fuhs, Associate Director of Field Strategies for the Pacific Southwest Region of Campus Crusade for Christ, and Dan Birch, new staff heading to Arizona State University on what it means and why we should innovate in evangelism.

a [more] unified message

Once upon a time, I too, was a student involved in Crusade on a campus that was a bit hesitant about having us there. My life changed through those bible studies that were meeting in cramped dorm rooms and lounges. There was  a spark within me to begin to live life differently. I embraced conference-life, joined staff, pioneered a new movement in a beach-party town. I decided to go international. I raised support, wrote the prayer letters, lived the life of a tried-and-true Crusade staffer. After my time overseas, I was feeling pulled in a different direction of ministry, it was then that I joined the staff of a local church here in Wilmington, NC –Port City Community Church.
