Universal Citywalk Madness

I think I am running a mini-youth ministry again with Kyle/Kellie & their whacky friends. Great kids.

Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford

If you are in business, any business, you should attend this event next year. They do it every year at Stanford and it is free. I was invited by a VC at Sequoia Partners I did some consulting for.  I learned ALOT. I also learned I am not sure that I really DO want to work at one of those hot new start ups. Getting to know people who are at these kind of places, I think I sort of LIKE the balance and measured chaos I experience now....

Want happier customers? Give them LESS information?!

Odd or counterintuitive information, this study says that customers are happier with less information....hmmm.  Researchers at Tippie Business College came to this conclusion after doing research and opinion polls on hand lotion and chocolate.  I guess I could see that, those are impulse buys, telling me about the preservatives or chemicals isn't going to make me "happy!"  I don't know if this applies everywhere, but interesting thinking when it comes to product marketing/information. Maybe more is NOT more..... http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/537323/?sc=dwtr

NFL Gives in to Churches, victory!

http://adjix.com/5ycw  This is actually a big deal for churches who are reaching their community for Jesus.  The Superbowl is the ONE big event of the year that literally every guy will attend. It is tough to reach the typical isolated American male & get him to see church isn't for women and babies. Even if he is not a sports fan, he will attend a superbowl party if invited, sometimes just to save face and look like a "real" man.    A few years ago there was some really cool curriculm/videos put together by Campus Crusade for Christ.  They would video tape testimonials of players who were in the superbowl game, and you watched this material before, after or during commercials. It was very cool. I did this in Oceanside where we had the Marine population, one of the best outreach events I've ever been a part of.

EXCELLENT preaching!

When I was full time in ministry, I taught sometimes 3 times a week between different youth events. So, I became a "student" of great preachers. I was always on the lookout for other good teachers/preachers to stay sharp and get good ideas.  One of the great things about the internet is you can find this stuff, and share it with others, especially people you are trying to reach.  One of the best preachers I've met is Todd Clark at Discovery Church here in my town Simi Valley.  They have started streaming their sermons online.
