New Seminars from the Midnight Oil Guys


We're pumped to announce that we're launching two new seminars for 2007! Catch one or the other or get both together for the full creative treatment.

Creative Worship: Culture Art Team Technology
If you've ever seen an excruciating PowerPoint presentation in worship then you know that just jumping on the digi-bandwagon does not necessarily create instant congregational renewal.

The real story in worship now is not the use of screens, but how screens and other forms of media come together to create powerful God experiences. Come see our newly redesigned seminar, Creative Worship, and explore what happens next with our latest thinking on culture, art, teams and technology.


Design Matters: How to Create Powerful Media for Worship
This next-level seminar takes a closer look at creating powerful media for worship with a in-depth and hands-on examination of principles for design, ways to utilize media in worship, tools of the trade, and much more. This seminar is in the final planning stages so watch for dates soon or contact us to book one.

Locations and Times for 2007
We're booking dates now so if you don't see one that fits your schedule let us know and we'll book one that works for you.



Late Planner's Christmas Sale

Are you a late planner? If you're not sure, take the following quiz:

1) I plan Christmas Eve worship:
A. At the end of last Christmas
B. During the summer or fall
C. On Christmas Eve Eve

If you connect with C more than A or B, then this is for you. We're offering a Late Planner's Christmas Sale. Now through Monday get $5 off any of our Christmas resource volumes.

Learn more here and let us help you get a jump on planning this year.

Monthly Media Freebie
Celebrate Christmas or the any part of the winter months with our popular Winter Lamp loop. This subtle motion background video is great for the Christmas season or during any event in the winter. The serene atmosphere with snow falling on the wooden post and its light evoke the light of the world and the cross of Jesus.


Download it now!



Many people say it is their favorite entry on our Christmas Loops disc. You can download Winter Lamp today or anytime this month as our December 2006 monthly media freebie. Plus, get the matching graphics here.
