New Training Resources and more
Worship Media Sessions

Wherever we go in our work with churches, we hear the same thing: "We need more and better training!" We also hear, "Give us downloads!" (We also hear, "We need an extra day between Saturday night and Sunday morning!" but, we can't help you there.)

We've combined two felt needs into one great new line of products. Introducing... downloadable training videos from Midnight Oil! Our first line of videos comes from our seminar Creative Worship. We call them Worship Media Sessions. Bite-sized training for budget minded ministries.

Videos range from 5 to 28 minutes long. They're downloadable so you can watch them right on your desktop and improve how you do your ministry in less than the amount of time it takes to procrastinate. Topics range from making images, to team building, to techniques for media minstry development, and much more. Click here for the list and start getting smarter today:

T-Shirt Sale

Media Ministry Tee There are few things more exciting than Opening Day in the life of a baseball fan. For those who get it, Opening Day is like an unofficial holiday. Maybe it's something about being part of a team: the thrill of working together, or the joy of when things come together for the win.

Is there an excitement in your media ministry similar to that of fans and players on Opening Day? There should be! Open your media ministry season by outfitting your team with one of our Media Ministry hats or shirts. We've heard all kinds of feedback about the "sense of team" they create, and that they make a great recruiting tool.

To celebrate the season, now through April 30, all Midnight Oil apparel, including t-shirts and hats, is on sale, for 25% off.

Media Ministry is a like a sport. Look the part.

The Game of Life at Church of the Resurrection

Life logo Spring is normally a time here at Midnight Oil where we're busy creating new volumes of resources. This year, though, we've done something a little different. Some friends of ours asked for help on a new series. Knowing our passion for metaphor, the well-known Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City MO approached us to create a 7 week series, based on the classic boardgame, called "Seven Simple Truths About Life".

Here's a sample of some of the media we made for them. We are excited to work with them, and doubly excited such a church of influence is being so creative in worship!


Wired Church 2.0 Another thing we're hard at work on is our slate of books. The teams book deadline comes up in a few months. And The Wired Church 2.0 is in the final stages of publishing.

We now have the official website for The Wired Church online. Come take a look:

Midnight Oil birthday cake While many of us were running to the post office to file taxes, we marked April 15 on the calendar for another reason: a birthday! Midnight Oil Productions LLC is now the ripe old age of six.
