I have to admit, I'm a LifeChurch.tv junkie. I'm costantly blown away be the resources they put out there for FREE! I've used their Youth Ministry videos, small group materials, and daily use the YouVersion iPhone App. I just heard about a new set of resources they are putting out on VideoTeaching.com. This is simply a website with downloadable video messages from some of the best communicators of the gospel from around the world! Can you imagine needing to be out one Sunday or having lost your voice and your fill-in for the day is Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, or Mark Driscoll? Pretty good back up plan... and it's FREE! Actually, I wouldn't consider this a back up plan, but I would filter through these messages and find some opportunities for your congregation to experience the teachings of some of these great pastors on a regular basis. I look forward to seeing what pastors/speakers are added to this list in the future and how this FREE resource like so many others that LifeChurch.tv has put out will impact our world in powerful ways with the message of Jesus Christ!
If you're not already listening to the Catalyst Podcast you need to be! Some of the best interviews out there with some of the most innovative leaders in ministry today. If you're planning to go back through some of their past podcasts here are a few interviews I would make sure to check out: Mark Driscoll, Rick Warren, Donald Miller, and Andy Stanley. They're all fantastic though! I would also add the interview with Gayle Haggard to that list. Gayle's testimony and transparency is powerful as she has journeyed with her husband Ted, suffering for a sin she did not commit. Her strength and courage is tremendous and will inspire you! If you are a regular listener of the Catalyst podcast, I would love to hear what your favorite interviews were. I would also love to hear any other podcast suggestions you might have.
