What have you been doing during the summer?

Ok, so yes I haven’t been blogging regularly and have been really trying to take the summer easy.
At work however, we have been quite busy working with so many different things. One of these things that gets SUPER busy during the summer is preparing for the new season of the TENBEFORE. (yes I said season). Kim, my new assistant, has made these gorgeous boards that help us make sense of THREE campuses and what happens Ten Minutes before the service starts. The guys have been working hard on updating the brand, making promo’s for upcoming series, writing commercials that lead people to specific ministries, and highlighting some of our worship leaders. After it runs on Sundays it then goes to the web in case people missed it.

We REALLY wanted to take announcements OUT of the service and keep that time to more of a welcome. It is still evolving and changing and by no means perfect. For us though, we want people to lean in and get engaged when it starts.

Click HERE and here for a sample of what we did in the spring.
Below is what is coming up with the information we have. Don’t think for a second it doesn’t change.

Where do you put your announcements?

Letters to the Next President

Picture 4

We are beginning a new series on June 29th at North Point and it promises to be one that generates a lot of questions. We wanted to get people involved no matter what political view point they had so, we created a website where people can write a letter to the next president no matter WHO it will be. You are not writing to a candidate but to the next president.

Don’t forget to check out the promo. It’s always fun to have Andy involved and we had a great time recreating the White House press room – IN ONE DAY!!!. North American Mission Board is right next door to North Point so we were able to get the flags. We rented the blue drape. Then Matt from the media team sketched out a fun version of the white house but with a little spin. Make sure you see it! Podium is courtesy of Alpharetta Baptist Church.

This series promises to be a good one and we are really excited about it. Stay tuned…

Difficult is Worth Doing campaign

Picture 2-3

So the peeps over at Wieden & Kennedy Studio (if you have never heard of them, you have most likely seen their campaigns) are in charge of the new Honda campaign “Difficult is worth doing”. Pretty cool documentary on how difficult a day shooting sky divers could be. Talk about needing a perfect day! I watched the documentary and then watched the commercial. Great edits – great energy – the music ties it all together well.
Watch the documentary then watch the commercial. In your opinion, is diffficult worth doing? Yes or no
