  • Making Church More Visual

    Workshop Description: Have you ever thought, “There’s got to be a different way to do this?” when it comes to the services and events at your church? Even if you don’t have the power to change your church’s order of worship, this workshop will lead you to discover new ways of helping your congregation and staff engage with the gospel (and each other) using visual learning, perfect for such a time as this!

  • The Art of the Interview in Short-Films

    Workshop Description: A great short-film starts with a great script. But what does it look like when a personal story is told in interview format? The best video stories your church will tell come from the people in your community. Gary has interviewed over 100 top athletes and performers, creating short-films with the content results. He’ll help you discover timeless principles and practical processes to capture their best content, all in an interview setting where any subject feels safe, a little anxious, and courageous.

  • Faithful in the Small

    Workshop Description: Sometimes we can overcomplicate the elements of success in worship. Join Meredith Andrews for a personal perspective on her journey as a worship leader. She will discuss a few of the things she has learned over the years, how to stay faithful to the small things and keep worship at the forefront of your focus.

    Time & Place: Workshop Session C – Chapel

  • Sketchup 101: 3D Set & Environment Design

    Workshop Description: Whether it’s a lobby renovation, pop-up volunteer display, or full-blown set design for your next service or camp, designing in a 3D software can make your life way easier to work out the details! However, often software like that is expensive and tough to learn. Nate Griffin has a solution for you! Sketchup. Come learn the basics of this class and the building blocks to making your first 3D design from a guy who’s been doing it for decades.

  • Wayfinding & Signage in the Church

    Workshop Description: Signage is an art; an underappreciated art. But great wayfinding is necessary for a first-time visitor to find their way around your building. Sometimes we forget the best practices of great signage and wayfinding because we’re so familiar with our building. But in this class, we’ll explore new strategies and ideas to increase your wayfinding presence by diving into best practices for church signage.

    Time & Place: Workshop Session D – Treehouse 1
    Speaker: Shayla Kenworthy & Meredith Erwin
    Key Topics: Leadership, Communications

  • Project Management for Events & Special Projects

    Workshop Description: From time to time, your creative team may need to take on a big task from a building campaign to the fall family festival. So we’ve asked an event industry expert and certified meeting manager to break down her team’s process to executing flawless events with ease. You’ll walk away with practical things to manage those event details and ways to save time and money in the process.

    Time & Place: Workshop Session E – Student Center 1
    Speaker: Falon Scott
    Key Topics: Creative Process, Leadership

  • Worship, Work & Idols

    Workshop Description: It’s an odd thing to work in the church because our work and worship are often confused as the same. In this class, we’ll look to scripture to be the guide on how to keep a healthy balance between these things. Failure to do so can tragically cause our work to turn into a golden calf. Your work can (and should) be an act of worship, but it’s unhealthy when your work steals your ability to worship.

    Time & Place: Workshop Session E – Student Center 2
    Speaker: Joel Muddamalle
    Key Topics: Philosophy, Worship

  • Filmmaking PrePro: Concept & Storyboarding

    Workshop Description: Great story starts in the planning phases. In this class we’ll look at the process of storyboarding and the creative process of filmmaking. From creating a mood board for your team, to laying out your stories scene by scene, this can increase clarity on set and help you avoid those problems and setbacks that seem inevitable.

    Time & Place: Workshop Session E – Treehouse 1
    Speaker: Ezra Cohen
    Key Topics: Creative Process, Storytelling
