Why Your Message Needs to Find a Mobile Audience

As of January 2013, there are more mobile devices in the world than people.  (In India, there are more mobile devices than toilets, but that’s another blog post entirely.)  The question becomes – is your message available on mobile platforms?   Are your short films, videos, sermons, teaching, blogs, or whatever else available via mobile?  If not, you’re missing a massive audience that is only growing.  New research indicates Millennials in the US check their smartphones 45 times a day, and 67% of Millennials use two or more mobile devices daily.  In this short video, I share why it matters: Read the full article »

3 Important Things I Learned About Creativity from Fishing in Key West

I went deep sea fishing in Key West today. I’m speaking at a Christian Vision global conference at Duck Key, and a few of us went out on a fishing boat early in the morning. While you’re out there waiting on the fish to bite, you have a lot of time to think, so naturally, I started thinking about creativity, influence, and producing media programming that impacts audiences. Here’s 3 thoughts that came to me while I was waiting for that awesome fish in the photo: Read the full article »

Mastering Media Is Knowing What Each Platform Does Best

Too many people use media randomly, with no real strategic vision. Perhaps a friend recommended local TV, or a board member suggested billboards, or a church youth director likes social media. All these platforms and others are important, but they question is: Why? While I could write many books on the subject, here’s a short list of what differentiates some of the major media platforms: Read the full article »

Warning Signs of Bad Christian Television

In my book “The Last TV Evangelist: Why The Next Generation Couldn’t Care Less About Christian Media – And Why It Matters,” I released a list of mistakes that reveal when Christians are dropping the ball – particularly on television. Some readers have called it “TV Evangelist Porn.” While that may be a stretch, it does echo just how out of sync with good taste these “offenses” are: Read the full article »

Five Steps To Overcoming the “Jolts” of Life

When disaster strikes our life, we’re often simply overwhelmed.  As we saw during the 2011 tsunami in Japan, entire towns were wiped off the map, and all these years later, we’re still seeing news reports of problems with the clean up. When a country like that is in chaos, where do we begin when problems happen? Even more important, how do we deal with the “meltdowns” we face in our lives? In my book “Jolt! Get the Jump on a World That’s Constantly Changing” I show you how to weather the storms of change, and actually use it to your advantage. After being fired, going through a divorce, losing a loved one or experiencing other traumatic life events, how do you start over?  Here’s 5 ways to move forward with purpose: Read the full article »

Christian Tomatoes: The Christian Rip-Off’s Continue

I wrote recently about “Godinterest” – the Christian social media site that’s a rip-off of Pinterest. Before that it was “Christian Chirp” – the rip-off of Twitter (notice that the site has been terminated, and the owner cites my post as one of the reasons.  I had no idea I was a member of the “Christian elite.”) I could continue, but the latest seems to be “Christian Tomatoes,” the Christian movie review site that’s (you guessed it) from the highly successful secular movie review site “Rotten Tomatoes.”  In all honesty, I’m sure Read the full article »

Where Do Pastors Get The Idea That The Bible Is Practical?

You have no idea the number of pastors who tell me that their unique gift is to teach the Bible from a practical perspective. They focus on helping their congregation understand the Bible in practical ways. I assume they mean like the owner’s manual of a car, or the instructions for operating a computer. But the problem is – the Bible may be the least practical book ever written. In fact, I wonder if Read the full article »
