cmp on amazon

Since launching ChurchMag Press in June of this year, it has been our intent to make ChurchMag publications available on Amazon. However, with only two of us—myself and KC Procter—we hadn’t found the bandwidth with an initial launch of 8 digital resources and a few more this month (sign-up for updates). So, needless to say, we are very […]

Weebly: Free and Easy Church Websites

I’m a bit of a technology snub. There’s no point in denying it. I resisted switching from a straight-up, manually coded website to a WordPress site because of this arrogance. To this end, I resisted again when my employer asked all employees to set up websites for our classrooms via Weebly. I was wrong for […]

If your church or ministry uses a projector or big TVs you might well display video loops and things on them as well as using them during services, etc. But those loops can get a bit samey (and can cost).

I love looking at pictures of space. One of my favorite things about childhood was in third grade when I wrote some letters to NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and received some incredible hi-res (for the time) images from space. It was so awesome! (I’m pretty sure I’ve got them in a […]

What Happens When People Have Fun?

Have fun. Please, have fun? I firmly believe Christians could use some help in this area of their lives. In fact, in our recent reader survey, a few submissions specifically noted that ChurchMag would be better if there was less fun.

The Power of Story - Screenshot

Are you a storyteller? Videographer? Photographer? Writer? Or communicator? I’ve known church creatives to struggle with finding themselves on the mission field.

Saturday Morning Reviews

Saturday Morning Review

Over the past several years, ChurchMag has posted various book and music reviews. Book reviews have traditionally been posted on occasion without any kind of consistency and the music reviews have been off and on just the same—titled: Turntable. I am not interested in ChurchMag becoming some kind of music and book review site, but I am […]
