Passion for church planting

At 17 years of age, I knew that I desired to plant churches in Europe. Some 40 years have passed and that is still my greatest joy.

Many different skill-sets are required to reach out and adopt another culture - a few of which are flexibility, humor and a never-give-up attitude.

Within these pages you will find some of our stories, see some of the sites that we enjoy as we travel to encourage those in the task of planting churches in Europe, plus visit those that our church has sent out around the world. May you also be inspired to be passionate about serving Jesus and others.

There have been some interesting developments that allow me to see God's wonderful, magnificent handiwork, so I thought I would share some of those by video.

Technical aspects of shooting this video montage for those that are attempting to break into video reports:

20180313 01Camera: I use a camera that records with facial recognition. Shot in full HD - 1920x1080, f-stop 4.5 (so that there is a sharp fall off in focus behind the eyes. I love the Sony A7Sii as a video camera. Mainly because of image quality, plus the fact that it is low image noise even in low light.

Lighting: I use a DIY 30cm daylight LED Panel. A side benefit is a catchlight in the eyes, which also give a better impression that the eyes are in good focus, which they are.

Like this: LED Panel

Audio: Rode NTG-2 on an overhead stand. Mastered in Sony Sound Forge (Pro) Version 11.0 to -6dB. With a compressor (3:1) / limiter applied.

When shooting update video reports, think in this order:

1. Audio.

2. Lighting.

3. Video.

It must be heard, to be understood; seen, in order to be felt. Do everyone a favor, get it right.
