This week is "set-change week" at New Vintage church. We've just ended a series called Tribes based off of Seth Godin's book and now we're using the graphics from's Hostage series to do our own HOSTAGE series. This series is seven weeks long and ends on Easter Sunday. I'm so excited about what's happening here. Here's a peak into the set build.

NVC Production Team Wins // 2.21.09-2.22.09

Wins are where we scored, hit the bullseye and something went right.

Yesterday was my first day leading the Production Team at New Vintage Church. I've been learning a lot from Dan Fisher over the past month of what the Multi-Media Team does at NVC.

Here's the weekend run-down:
  • We were severely short-staffed this past weekend, so most of our volunteers stepped up to the plate on Thursday or Friday of last week. Thanks guys! Incredible!
  • Saturday: John (Lights), Sy (ProPresentor) and Tom (Sound)
  • John was cross-trained in ProPresentor before service and can now fill another position in rotation for us!
  • Tom and Sy hadn't been on in the rotation for a few months and I'm so happy that they were there helping us out on Saturday night. Let's continue to build the team so that the rotation is large and not a drain on any one person.
  • Sunday: Wes & Riley (Stage Hands), Jerome (ProPresentor), Allen (Sound) Gary & Wes (Stage Set Up) and the Wells Fargo Guys too. We were set up in record time, way before the musicians where ready to practice. That's huge guys! Keep it up.
  • The dancers were "stunning," especially on Sunday with the spots only! It really was the graceful illsutration Andy was looking for.
  • Lighting overall was "A-W-E-S-O-M-E" according to Julie McIntosh. 
  • Many of our normal volunteers were able to take the weekend off, going out of town or spending time with their families. I'm glad you guys got some rest.

What are some WINS you noticed? I'd like to hear.

Living Room Events

Foyer-Living Room-Kitchen (want to know more, click here and watch the "next" video)

That's the strategy of New Vintage Church. We want to move people through steps to end up in the Kitchen (Small Groups).

In a couple of weeks we're having three different Living Room events:

MarriedLife Live
SingleLife Live
20-Somethings Night Out

I'm speaking at the 20-Somethings Night Out.

If you were speaking, what would be your topic? If you were attending, what would you want me to talk about?

"I Have Found" a Great Song

Erica found this song on Casey Darnell's blog a while back. Last night I finally broke down and spent $0.99 on the song, I Have Found by Kim Walker. It would be worth your change to purchase this song from her CD Here is My Song.

Bodega Bay

Today, Erica's grandparents came to visit us from Fresno. We were really excited to see them. They also brought the cash from Paul selling our washer and dryer (thank you) and some items we had left in Fresno. But we were more excited to see them. We drove out to Bodega Bay (Yeah, that's right...where The Birds was filmed) and had lunch at The Tides. Below are some pictures from our day.

Here's the linke to a picture from Erica's phone
I bet you want to come visit us now, huh?
