Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  I am so excited!



As many of you know, I enjoy working with the youth group at my church. One of the things I really like to do is making videos. We make all kinds, from the meaningless to the ones with spiritual value. We make a lot of videos that promote upcoming events. Well, we finally made it to the big time, we are on the internet! Thanks to Josh over at youthgroupvideos.com, we are able to show you guys some of our work. Just click here and once you are at the site just click on the video names "Super Wow Promo Video". It should be the first video you see on the page.

Gabe, our youth pastor, and I have being doing videos for years. He is the one who really got me started and now I can't get enough. We used to have a regular video camera where we would have to stop if we messed up, rewind the camera and start all over again. Now, thanks to technology, we can video everything then go to the computer and edit, add music and make it an all around better video.

God has blessed us so much that we were asked to do some videos for North American Mission Board. Please don't get me wrong, I am not bragging, this is a testimony. Because without God we would not be able to do the things we do. There have been times when we needed a video but we had no ideas. Then there were times when we tried to make a video without God's help, those videos lacked something. So Gabe and I would say a prayer and it would seem like right out of the blue, BAM, an idea would come into our heads. And those videos would have a spark, something special. How awesome is that?

Please go to Josh's site and check out our video and let me know what you think. We are going to have more put up as soon as Josh gets his new website going. I will keep you posted. We are also starting a new website for our youth group and we are going to post videos there also. But your feedback is important to us, we like to know what we can do better and what we are doing well.

Have a good day and God bless,
Joe

I am so excited!

Joe, it starts out GREAT! But it took so long to load that I couldn't get it all. I'm still in the dark ages with dial-up internet.

I think your ministry is super! We can reach so many people like this.

I pray that many youth are impacted by this. I have a stepson who will soon be 14, and seeing the state of so many youth these days, he'll need such positive influence to stay on the straight and narrow.

Hey Joe,
Yeah I like that one too. I wish we could have done that but the only one we have on that page right now is the life gaurd one. The rest are from other churches.
