1) We're going on TV. WSVN (Fox affiliate) Sundays @ 11am. What's the word I'm looking for.... uh... WOOHOO! This is yet another seed distribution point, another opportunity for us to impact people in Miami-Dade for Christ. God, thank you for the opportunity. Christ Fellowship, thank you for believing enough in the Media volunteers to allow us to serve...
2) Great worship. Love the strobe lights... and by strobe lights I mean smoke alarm when my unnamed light tech went a little heavy on the haze. Thank you to Miami-Dade Firemen for not yelling at us TOO BADLY...
3) Great Advanced Training sessions. New people at practically every seminar. People who use audio, visuals, or computers as their hobby... but want to use their talents (so to speak) for the Lord. Had some great conversations. I love meeting new people!
4) Had a conversation with a member of CF. She's been connected to the church for over 40 years. She's in her 80s (a Great Grandmother) and asked me if she could test drive Media being a VJ. Why? Well, if my Mom can do it, she wants to try. Seriously, how great is that!
5) Highlight of my night happened in Starbucks after the breakouts (I took a couple of our volunteers out). Following is a conversation between me and Eddy P:
Eddy- I'm just looking forward to digital scripts!
Jeff- What are you talking about?
Eddy- Jeff, you give us these massive scripts. I can't follow that and do what I need to do. I don't have enough hands. I want to see the script on a computer monitor and then have someone scroll the page for me when it's time so I can have my hands free on the switcher.
Jeff- Eddy, that's beautiful. That's the best idea I've ever heard. That one person can help Sound, Lights, Camera Director, Stage Director, and VJ keep up with what's going on. We're doing that immediately!
So here's the deal. I need four people (one person for each service) that can scroll a Microsoft Excel document. Basically, if you can click on an Excel document, you can do this. Let me know if you're game!
God, thank You for these opportunities. Thank You for allowing us to do great things for Your Glory.
