This week Jeremy takes the huge hole dug and turns the environment into a retro parkour drop game, minus the blocks to parkour on.

This week, Jeremy talks about what it means to value something, beyond a monetary number.
Instagram is a huge platform and definitively one that your church should serious look at using if it isn’t. The strong visual component of Instagram, integration with Facebook and the mobile first approach has made it one of the stand out social networks out there. But, as Instagram doesn’t have the retweeting abilities of twitter or sharing of Facebook, it can be harder to get discovered compared with other social networks.
So how can you build a following?
Well in the video and inforgraphic below, Chris Burkard shares 16 tips he has found work. Why should you listen to him? Well he does have over two million follows (that’s a lot more than one for every day of the week).
I suspect that someone with that large a following might know a thing or two about Instagram.

As a speaker, microphones can be your best friend or your worst enemy. There are few things in your delivery that are more important to your audience than a clear sound, and few things that annoy them more than sound issues. A lot of those can be avoided by learning how to use a microphone well.
Using a microphone is not rocket science, but it does take a little more effort than picking the mic up, tapping on it, and saying test-one-two-three. As a matter of fact, let’s get this one thing out of the way right now: mics are not meant to be tapped. Ever.
Churches are impactful when more people play an active part. People serving are usually put in two groups. Paid and unpaid. The paid are usually called staff and the non-paid, volunteers; all are critical. To be effective, every local church need both staff and volunteers at their best. A compelling message is necessary to get more hands on deck. However, it can’t end there. Enter staff and volunteer onboarding.
Staff and volunteer onboarding is critical for making sure people are set up to play their part well. It is about getting new staff and volunteers familiar with their environment and context. It is role specific, and extends to the broader picture of team and church.
