Time Change Video

Filed under: Videos,Wednesday Nights,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 2:37 pm

Why certain items (games, fun songs) catch on within a youth ministry I’ll never understand.  Back in the Fall our student ministry’s worship leader made a joke about the “Time Change” & ever since it’s been a big deal for our group ever since.  We opened our Student Worship service this week w/ this video (it contains lots of inside jokes).

Goodbye Email

Filed under: Media,Videos — Neil @ 4:00 pm

I found this video while doing some research in preparing for a talk to teens on the topic of social media.  For the article that goes along w/ the video click here.

I’d personally be ok if the forward & reply all options were eliminated from email.

Backwards Thinking

Filed under: Videos,Wednesday Nights,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 11:54 am

This past Wednesday we concluded Backward$ (learning to have a biblical view of $) as well as our Student Worship service for 2010.  We ended the night by giving our teens some examples of people/organizations who think backwards about their $ & possessions.

Here are a few of the examples:

charity: water
mycharity: water
8 year old girl raises $7,695 through mycharity: water

DudePerfect – Texas A&M college students who have used basketball to spread the Gospel & to raise money for Compassion.

1 of my favorite apps is Dropbox.  It allows me to have any needed files from any computer or my phone.  It also allows me to easily share files w/ someone else.

Dropbox offers 2 paid subscription options, but you can also get a free accoutn w/ 2 gb (more if you are willing to share dropbox through your twitter &/or facebook accounts).

What is weird?

Filed under: Videos — Neil @ 6:00 am

If you are like me & have grown up in church & always been surrounded by “christian” thinking then I encourage you to spend 7 minutes & watch this message from Francis Chan at Catalyst 2010.

Here’s the 1st 2 videos:
