Church Technology Guide - Worship Production

Church Technology Guide - Worship Production | Life without Limbs |

For 18 months I have been dreaming about and working on this project and so
today I'm excited to finally announce that the Church Technology Guide
is here!  For the past 5 years I have been asking church leaders what their
greatest pain points are when it comes to technology and in the coming
months I will be responding to those pain points with practical solutions.

Are You Periscoping... Yet?

Are You Periscoping... Yet? | Life without Limbs |
People are always asking me the question: "What's the next big thing?"

Normally, I don't have a definitive answer, but for the past 2 weeks the
answer has been easy: PERISCOPE!  

What is Periscope you ask?  Well, it's a new live streaming social network
released by Twitter.  It's pretty simple actually.  You simply login with
your Twitter credentials and can watch hundreds of live streams sent out
through iPhones or begin live streaming through your iPhone and hundreds of
people could potentially watch.  Not only can they watch it though, they
can interact with you through live commenting that will be displayed on
your app while you stream.  

Make sense?  Of course not.  Most social networks don't and the best way to
understand it is to use it.  Here's how you can get started in about 15

1. Download the Periscope app from the App Store (only available on
iPhones and iPads right now)
2. Watch 3-5 Live Streams and see how it works and what people are
streaming and how others interact with them.
3. Hit the camera button on the bottom, write "Test" on the Title area
that says "What are you seeing now?" and hit Start Broadcast.
4. Have fun and connect with people all over the world!

You're probably asking why should I Periscope?  The bottom line is that
thousands if not millions of people are engaging on this app at any given
time.  From a ministry perspective you have an opportunity to engage people
in conversations instantly from anywhere at any time.  You don't have to
send an invite and hope people show up.  You don't have to setup a bunch of
equipment or do anything very technical either.  You just have to push a
button and Periscope will send people directly to you.  Not just a couple
people, but literally hundreds of people.  Instantly!

Now you're probably asking: what should I video that people would be
interested in?  To be honest people are live streaming pretty uninteresting
things and getting large audiences.  From a ministry perspective though, my
encouragement is to have conversations.  Start a topic and be available to
answer people's questions.  Try some of these Titles and see what happens:

* Debriefing Easter 
* Talking about Jesus
* My Take on Jesus
* Why I Read the Bible
* My Favorite Verse

I think you will get great engagement right away with these titles, but
feel free to not be super spiritual as well and just show a little bit
about life.  You can try some of these titles as well:

* My office setup
* My favorite view
* Talking Baseball

Just like any other social network, get started and be social.  Have fun
and let me know what you think!  The platform is so new and will change
fast.  Get ready and enjoy the ride!

Before I end this post I do want to share a few warnings/opinions:

* Haters - there are lots of haters and porn seekers on the site.  They
are annoying.  They need Jesus.  Understand that they are there, but
if you can press through there is a great ministry opportunity.
* Porn - there are porn producers using this platform like every other
platform on the internet.  Honestly, I think they will kill it if
Persiscope can't get a handle on it.  Let this be a warning and I
encourage you to keep solid accountability in all of your internet
* Fad - I believe Periscope is a fad.  I think it will come and go
pretty quickly.  The reality is that it is here now with a great
opportunity.  The opportunity will fade and if you don't get it now I
think you will miss the fad.  This is just an opinion though and I
could be wrong.

Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference FREE Live Stream

Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference FREE Live Stream | Life without Limbs |
Over the past 18 months I have had the privilege of serving Pete Scazzero
and the great people at Emotionally Healthy Spirituality as a consultant.
 Over this time I can without hesitation say that this ministry has grown
and developed me more than I have grown and developed it.  To say that the
core message of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is counter-cultural would
be an understatement.  This ministry is transforming thousands of leaders
around the world and I'm grateful to be one of them.

If you are not yet familiar with the ministry I highly encourage you to
visit and get to know the ministry better.  In less
than 2 weeks on April 22-23rd the ministry will be holding their annual
Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference here in New York.  The conference
will include great presenters above in Pete & Geri Scazzero along with Rich
Villodas (pictured above).  Unfortunately, this conference has been sold
out for weeks, but fortunately we will be making the conference available
for FREE via Live Stream!  There's no catch, no strings attached, just a
transformational conference for leaders of any kind.  

To learn more about this conference and to register for the Live Stream go

Okay, I'm not done yet on my plea.  I often get similar free live stream
invitations and because it's free I halfway watch it in the background.
 Often times they don't stream the whole conference as well and it's just a
couple sessions.  I want you to know that we are streaming ALL main session
events and the breakout in the main auditorium during the conference.  This
will be well worth your time and if you can clear your schedule and fully
engage in the live stream, I can guarantee that it will be worth your time
and you will be a better leader because of it.  That's a bold statement,
but I say it with great confidence.  

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out or
comment below.  I hope to see you online for this incredible event!

RSVP for Easte

We love trying new things at Community Bible Church!  Easter weekend is naturally a unique weekend for most churches.  At CBC we will be having 10 different services with 3 different experiences in 2 different venues.  It's also the weekend that we have more guests than any other weekend making it very confusing to communicate to that first time guest.
