Kevin Hendricks is the Editor of ChurchMarketing Sucks and owns a freelance writing and editing company, Monkey Outta Nowhere.
He is a keen communication and EPIC reader—as many as 137 books in one year!
Talking with Kevin was a real treat. It was great to get to know him a little better and I am sure you’ll feel the same.
Now, here’s Kevin…
Jared Rypkema works for Molehill and does an awesome job with Buzzsprout‘s customer support.
He loves Church and technology, but his real passion comes with writing.
We sat down and talked with Jared on this ChurchMag Spotlight about his work with Buzzsprout, his passion of writing, and the most #EPIC tip on customer support — ever!
When it comes to church audio, there’s hardly a better man for the job.
Tommy Scully has over a decade of experience in the church audio and video industry. He has partnered with churches, ministries and organizations of all different shapes and sizes all over the United States. He’s been aiding the Church and helping churches get more from their current sound systems, as well as design and setup better solutions.
If that wasn’t awesome enough, he’s put together a stellar DVD church audio training series that churches have been using to train and help develop fully trained sound guys.
Enough bragging. I recently had fun talking with Tommy via video chat, check it:
Ever since I was in elementary school I’ve wanted to be a writer.
After thousands of blog posts under my belt, you would think I could call my life a “little boy’s dream come true.” Although a rigorous blog writing schedule has really stretched me and has been the greatest step towards becoming a writer one day, I’ve now discovered what I really want to do is tell stories.
I had never thought about this before, until I watched/listened to this:
These are some really great advertisements — be inspired!
Andrew Mason has launched a new, amazing resource called, The ProGuide.
The ProGuide is
an in-depth MP3 audio interview with a thought leader on any particular subject. It could be starting a business, leading well, creating graphics…..whatever!
It’s also about raising awareness by donating one dollar of each episode sold to Charity: Water. A great nonprofit building wells in impoverished countries.
It’s time to learn from the pros!
It may sound cliche, but the iPhone has changed the face of point and shoot photography. As a photographer, I made the change from Android to the iPhone largely due to the quality of its camera.
There are dozens of apps for the iPhone related to photography, but not one has taken the iPhone world by storm like Instagram. This free app is very easy to use. You snap a photo (or get one from your library) and upload it as is, or use one of fifteen different filters.
Where Instagram excels however, is that it has become its own community. Like Twitter, you can follow fellow Instagram users, use hashtags and also post images to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. Some Instagram users have really stood out with their work, producing images that could easily be turned into a book. Instagram has over 2.2 million users and upload 3.6 million new images a week.
Last week, I had the pleasure to sit down and talk with John Dyer.
John has been a web developer for more than ten years and has built tools for Apple, Microsoft, Harley Davidson, and the Department of Defense. He currently serves as the Director of Web Development for Dallas Theological Seminary and has written on technology and faith for Christianity Today, Collide Magazine, and now sits down and talks with ChurchMag.
We talked about his first book, From the Garden to the City.
Here’s an interview with Steven Sasson. He invented something we all now know and love, the digital camera!
You may be surprised by the medium that he used to store the images, if you don’t already know. And you may also be surprised by his philosophy of new ideas and how simple and profound it is (listen at about the 1:34 mark).
