Last Friday I was able to attend Whiteboard with my whole team.  I’ve never been able to go to a conference with everyone I worked with at a church.

I just came across this audio gold mine. Going to a conference is always better than just listening to the audio on your iPod, but it’s the next best thing. When you’re at a conference you’re able to get away from the normal, everyday routine and able to dream. That’s a little harder to do […]

This past summer I had the opportunity to visit a friend’s church in the Knoxville, TN area. I met Rodney Arnold earlier that year at another church while he was planning the launch of One Life. I was able to get away from my church to sit in on one of their preview services. You […]

I remember when I was first starting out, one of the most difficult challenges we faced was figuring out how to set up our school cafeteria.  There aren’t many pictures out there on the internet of school set ups to pull ideas from.

I recently came across a good article on church websites. They surveyed 70,000 people who attended over 100 different churches. They asked them questions about the church they attend and what role the website played in their decision to attend that church. It’s worth the read.

If you’re like me you try to schedule one or two conferences a year.  There’s only so much you can learn from books and blogs. At some point during the year you need to physically immerse yourself in new ideas. That’s what a good conference allows me to do. I’m excited that one of the […]

One of the mistakes we made in our first year was not spending the time early on developing systems for assimilation.  When we started, we were so small that I could personally meet a returning visitor for a cup of coffee and talk them through the process.  This worked fine until we started having double […]
