For the past five years, Dave has consistently pursued using media in or meetings with excellence, humility, innovation, and effectiveness, all in a way that seeks to promote the gospel rather than distract from it. Hence the title of his blog, Undistract. He’ll often share review thoughts from a Sunday morning that are both comprehensive and thoughtful, and touch on everything from sound, to video, to lighting. He explains his motivation here:
One of the ways that I want to grow is by taking advantage of each weekend experience to encourage the people on the production teams who make it happen and to spread the lessons learned to the whole group. In all honesty, I have tried several times to start up regular “Sunday in Review” emails, but I just haven’t been faithful to keep doing them over time.
Regular encouragement and honest, forward-looking criticism are crucial tools for serving my team members, but I just haven’t succeeded in providing this care. I need accountability, so I’m going to begin posting them here. God-willing, and by His grace, I will begin to write weekly posts called Sunday Reverb that will help encourage and strengthen our teams.
If you’re at all involved in using or overseeing media in your church, I can’t recommend his blog highly enough.
Dave will be participating in a number of seminars at WorshipGod08, including A Gospel-Centered Approach to Creative Media, Leading and Caring for Your Tech Team, and Running an Effective Sunday Morning Rehearsal .
