For years I watched LifeChurch.tv from afar in amazement at how they constantly innovated and pioneered new ministry opportunites. I was also blown away by their generosity as they always gave so much away. While in Student Ministry I can't tell you how many times I was in a pinch trying to pull together a message and I was able to deliver something much better by using one of the Student Ministry teaching videos that LifeChurch.tv made available for FREE!
Today, I'm beyond honored to not only watch from afar in amazement at how God continues to expand their impact and influence, but I'm able to experience it first hand as I have gotten to know the leadership at LifeChurch.tv and to be able to call them friends and partners in ministry. The example that they have set and the personal investment that they have made in me has been an incredible blessing in my ministry and leadership. I cannot begin to describe how much these leaders have shaped me as a leader through the years.
If you're not familiar with their FREE resources for Churches, please check out these links:
- Church Online Platform - a FREE online platform for churches to host their online services
- Church Metrics - a fantastic tool for tracking attendance, salvations, giving, etc.
- Develop.Me - a great tool to develop church staff members
- Open - packed with great resources from sermon messages, kids and student resources, leadership training, small group materials and so much more!
Oh yeah, and when they're not busy creating resources for church leaders, they're working on YouVersion! Likely half of your congregation is using this app each weekend alongside 160 million other people who have downloaded this Bible app. It truly is incredible all that God is using and how He is blessing their generosity!
Yesterday, I was privileged to experience another generous offering from a couple of key leaders at LifeChurch.tv - their time. This is probably the most valuable resource that anyone can offer. While they were in New York, they simply opened up a 2 hour block of time for church leaders to simply come and ask questions as well as make requests for future resource developments. The conversation was so inspiring and encouraging to myself and I know the other leaders who were privileged to participate.
Thank you LifeChurch.tv for all that you do for churches everywhere, for the investment you have made in me over the years and for the time that you shared yesterday. I am grateful!
