New Blog- Church Video Reviews

I wanted to let you know that I have started another blog about church and ministry video tools. Many churches, perhaps your own, are incorporating videos into their services, classes or ministry events.

This new blog takes a look at videos and tools that have been produced and were you can get them. You can search for videos from multiple video download distributors all in one location. It is my desire to do regular reviews about church and ministry videos, presentation software and special offers available. Check it out at

Help Contribute to a New Blog

Over the next few months I will be launching another blog. If you work as a media director or associate for a church and produce or use videos during your services, I would like to hear from you. I would like to find out about your experiences and how you are using these videos in your church. Please contact me with your name and e-mail address through the contact page. Click the above link.

Churches Using MySpace

In May 2006, The Wall Street Journal featured an article on churches that use MySpace to attract the younger generation to attend their church.  The writer of the article highlighted my post about using Squidoo.  Thanks to Andrew LaVallee for the mention.
