I’ll be speaking several times at NRB/Reach (which is in Orlando this year). I’d love to meet you if you’re going to be there.
Here’s my schedule so far (there may be one more class added):
- Saturday: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
“Beyond the Ecclesiastical Box: Reshaping Your Media Ministry to Reach a Postmodern Culture”
Presenters: Greg Atkinson, Founder, Church Video Ideas, Dallas, TX, Phil Bransom, Producer/Director, Phil Bransom Productions, West Linn, OR and Jay Edgerton, Producer/Dirctor, Consultant, Atlanta, GA.
Get out from behind your church and revolutionize your media ministry. Discover what’s working in emerging churches to touch postmodern society. How can your church use media ministry to grow beyond conventional methods? Learn new ideas to gear up and bring people in your community to the faith of Jesus.
- Sunday: 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
“Mushroom Eaters: Churches Taking Risks with Media (And Living to Tell About It)”
Presenters: Grant Guffin, President, Flashlight Films, Collierville, TN and Greg Atkinson, Director, Church Video Ideas, Dallas, TX.
Noted author Erwin McManus labels himself a “mushroom eater”—one willing to take a risk so that those who follow may benefit from—or avoid—his original experience. This session will highlight churches that are on the edge; blazing exciting, new trails with progressive, aggressive, Kingdom-minded use of media in an effort to connect with a media-savvy world. Hear dramatic stories of experiments that led to breakthrough, experience the end result, and walk away with fresh concepts you can apply in your own laboratory.
- Monday: 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM
“Q&A Forum on Creativity in Church Media Ministry”
Presenters: Greg Atkinson, Founder, Church Video Ideas, Dallas, TX; Orlen Stauffer, Director of Media, Kempsville Presbyterian Church, Virginia Beach, VA; Randal Taylor, Sr. Consultant/Executive Producer, BMC Advertising, Dallas, TX; Steve Smith, Media/Communication Pastor, First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL.
