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.

Graphics tutorials

Church graphics have taken a major step forward in that a savvy audience requires well prepared and creative images to drive a message. Learning the software that designs such graphics is a daunting task. Fortunately there are resources available for the entry-level student.

Adobe has products that are helpful in the field and are certainly the industry leader.

Photoshop

This is the all-around hands-down graphics and image design necessity. Mashable has entry-level tutorials available here.

Adobe has their tutorials archived here.

Additionally, I have benefited from Pflearn. They have many youtube videos that take a person step-by-step through the process.

PSD Stack also has over 100 tutorials that are helpful for grasping the power of Photoshop. And furthermore, the editor is a nice guy.

After Effects

This software produces motion graphics. It is not an entry-level drag and drop video editor, but rather a highly sophisticated software that allows for much of the CGI and special effects to which you have become accustomed.

VideoCopilot.net has many tutorials available, plus a basic training here.
