I have the honor of teaching a few classes at this years Dynamic Church Conference, and I’m totally psyched! To help drum up some buzz about the class I’m teaching with my buddy Scott, I made this little teaser.

So my friend Brian Vinson has come up with a great way to find all of those pesky duplicate entries in your Fellowship One database. He’s even asked me to post his recipe here at the Sea of Geek so you could all take advantage of it. I’ve been playing with it all morning and it’s pretty impressive. Read more of this post

If your church is anything like mine, you take keeping your children safe as the utmost priority on any given Sunday. In children’s ministry you have safe guards in place to make sure those individuals that should not be working with kids, don’t. As a user of Fellowshipone, we have several processes in place that help us know whom these individuals are. Until recently we had been using the profile picture: Read more of this post

Well this time it’s because I’m in it. Below are the videos Matt Knisely put together, featuring me. It was a fun shoot and he did a great job of asking the right questions.
Make sure you run over to Fellowship One’s Vimeo stream to catch the rest of the testimonials.

Wow, just wow. What an amazing experience DC11 was. I highly recommend the conference for anyone using F1 or even thinking about it. But let’s get to what you all are looking for. Here are my notes and thoughts from Day 3:
Session 8: Champion Team Panel
First off, I think I got more out of this session than any of the other ones. It was refreshing to see people doing the champion thing right. Notes:
Session 9: Finding Talent in Unexpected Places w/ Tara Coulson
I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this session. I came out of it questioning how much I know about F1. This session blew my mind. I can’t believe I had never looked at this before. I’ve got a great outside the box idea for this, but I’ll share that after my notes.
So, my out of the box idea is this. Create an activity, with one RLC in it. Then create a job for each paid position you have on your staff. Select what gifts apply to the jobs, then cross-reference your open positions with your volunteers you have gifts listed for. You now have a list of possible applicants for the open position.
Final Keynote: Roadmap
The whole week was just outstanding. I already can’t wait for DC12. I made a ton of new friends, some of which had very meaningful impact on me. I’m re-focused, and re-energized. See you guys at the Roadshow!
