We’re Celebrating 2015

I get this question a lot: “So, what is it exactly that you do and why the heck are you in New York?”  

Well, there’s no easy answer to this question, but let me answer it directly: I’m the Innovation Pastor at Community Bible Church (oversee pretty much everything on the Internet – website, apps, Online Church, etc.) and my wife and I choose to live in New York for this season in order for our family to gain a unique life perspective.  

Out of my work at Community Bible Church came my book, speaking opportunities and several consulting opportunities, which led us to launch this Nils Smith Solutions business. What has from day 1 functioned as a side business for me personally continues to blow me away by the impact we have been able to make as a team. While there are so many things I would love to celebrate when it comes to my work at CBC or experiences I would like to highlight from my family, I wanted to use this post to celebrate the impact that this business has been able to make over the past year.

Here are some of our highlights from 2015:

I’m humbled as I look at the impact that God has allowed for us to have this year. We believe that God has even greater plans for 2016 and preparing for exponentially greater impact. We appreciate your being a part of the journey and pray that we are able to serve you effectively in the future whether it’s through blog posts, online courses, strategic solutions or consulting services. We are truly humbled, honored and grateful as we celebrate 2015!  

Splice 3.0 is Here!

I'm so excited about Splice 3.0!  If you're an iPhone user you need to stop reading this blog post right now and download Splice right now.  Splice is THE BEST video editing app on the iPhone and it's now even better!

I've had fun working with the team at Splice beta testing this new update as it's a complete overhaul of what was already a great app on the iPhone.  When it comes to video you are hopefully doing more and more.  It's a pain to download a video from you phone to your computer to edit.  Honestly, you shouldn't.  With Splice you can do pretty much anything and everything you would want to do directly on your iPhone including uploading it directly to Facebook and other social networks.  

One thing you won't find in this version is a direct upload to YouTube, but honestly it's very easy just to download the video from Splice to your iPhone and then upload from your photo gallery to YouTube directly.  With Splice you can make great videos, slideshows and so much more.  Check out this quick video I made this morning using a few features like the clipping (cutting the part at the beginning off where I hit the record button), video filter (like Instagram) and the background music:
