We're Back !

Nashville was Seriously Ridiculous. Kirsten and I had an amazing time recharging our ministry batteries. We jump right back into youth ministry tonight with our annual Giving Thanks Dinner . After the potluck dinner with the kids we are off to Iowa for Thanksgiving. Should be fun.

Seriously Ridiculous NYWC

Today is our first day of the conference that included worship. We had some workshop hours yesterday and this morning. The workshops were ok. Worship was phenomenal. I’m seldom moved to emotions as I was these last few hours. It was as if God just said “It’s ok Kevin, Chillax”. I was completely flooded with the presence of God amongst and within us. It’s hard to describe but it was like slowly placing your hand in cold water experiencing the sensation as your hand enters the water. My guard, that is always up is aloud to fall to the floor and I become truly vulnerable with my peers (other youth workers). I completely trust them and know they “feel my pain”.
This year’s topic is “Seriously Ridiculous”. Kirsten and I saw signs that mentioned this theme and we were quite curious. This “Seriously Ridiculous” theme is like saying Crazy, Over the top, Awesome. God’s love for us is Seriously Ridiculous. The main thing we (youth workers) share in common is our love for youth.

Things are looking up

Clear skies today. Gotta love that. I'm also looking forward to leaving for Nashville tomorrow.

The Green Screen is coming.

What is a green screen? A green screen is a screen with a true green color used in video and photography to place the subject anywhere. I will be creating backgrounds in adobe photoshop and placing them on the green surface in the video. This will come in handy as we film different podcast spots and video commercials for the church. This Friday we hope to film some csi intro spoofs using the students in the youth ministry. We can film everything from one location then add the scenes in later using the computer. Some of the shots will be in Miami, NY, and Las Vagas. Should be fun.
