Worship Design Teams That Work #3: Brainstorming

The third in our current series Worship Design Teams That Work is online. This one is about the most critical, and funnest, part of the team experience. Where do great ideas come from? The answer is quite simple- brainstorming. Whether working alone, or with a group of other creative teammates, great ideas often start with brainstorms. But, loose as the process is, there are some techniques to apply to make sure your team brainstorms well and with a purpose. Learn more:

A Few Reasons to go to a Midnight Oil Seminar

We've revamped our workshop and here's what people are saying about it:

Your adamant refusal to provide a boiler-plate solution forces reflection on your concepts. Thank you. This should be mandatory with purchase of projection system.

-Marc Anciaux, Church of the Good Shepherd

This will, without a doubt, transition our service to its next level of sophistication and effectiveness.

- Kris Long, River of Life

Willow, Youth Specialties - I've been to all of them, and this is the best seminar out there.

- Scott Stearman, Denver First Church

Although your passion for clear, effective and inspired use of media is evident, your passion for God's message to be delivered for the transformation of those in attendance is even more obvious.

- Dan Glenn, First Church of the Nazarene

Check us out coming soon to a city near you, or book one yourself here:

Mar 24 -- New Hampshire
