Welcome XP3 Peeps!

April 3, 2012 — Leave a comment

Today XP3 (xp3students.org) released my blog as a blog to watch. Thanks for the shout out!

The reason they chose my blog is because of a little eBook I released a couple of weeks ago called Social Media Tips for the Church. You can find it here. I’d be more than happy to consult with you on your social media strategy, just hit me up with a comment or email.

I wanted to provide some specific information for all my student ministry friends who are visiting my blog today and the days to follow. So here are some blogs from the past specifically about social media. Enjoy.

Here’s a quick correction to my by-line in the email. I was the Service Programming Director, until we hired my friend Paul. I oversee our Student Ministries Director, Chris. And my title today is Groups Director, Exec. Student Ministries Director and Web/Marketing Director. Just wanted to give credit, where credit is due.

a simple thank you

If you work at a church and you aren’t hearing stories like these… it’s time to consider doing something different. I love hearing these stories. Thanks Jenn for sharing!

For NVC Parents

August 10, 2009 — Leave a comment

Today a new online resource was launched called Parent Connection specifically made for the parents of New Vintage Church. Here’s a quote from the site:

“New Vintage wants to partner with the parents in raising the next generation to be devoted followers of Jesus.  We only have a very small amount of time with your kids on a weekly basis at church compared to the time you spend with them at home.  This is why we want to provide resources for parents to follow up what we do on Sunday morning every day of the week at home.  Please use this website to learn more about our Family Ministry environments, and stay informed about what is going on each week in Children’s and Student Ministry.  You can also leave comments on posts, and see what other parents have to say!  We are excited to partner with YOU because what happens at home is more important than what happens at church!”

I strongly encourage you to take full-advantage of this resource. Go ahead, check it out.
