Email to Ridge Tech Vols... Hey everyone. What a great month. Hard to believe that BLDG D launched about a month ago. It's been encouraging to me to see the volunteers step in and serve in Tech. I have enjoyed serving alongside you, watching you all discover talents you never knew you had and hopefully helping you to develop your skills to take Austin Ridge to the next level. Thanks for being flexible, and willing to learn! More than a skill or a "thing that you do", I pray that serving in Tech becomes worship for you. During the times... Continue reading

Just heard from my buddy @onballoons that the Southern Baptist Convention is considering renaming itself. They have brought on a task-force of sorts, as I understand, to rename the organization. As a former SBCer, I just smile. Cause renaming an organization is going to solve all your problems... @onballoons, being a faithful SBCer and a current student at SEBTS, sent me several recommendations: Great Commission Convention, Global Baptist Conv, Int'l Baptist Conv These are all nice and pretty. What a good boy @onballoons is. Probably a good thing he left Miami before I had a chance to totally corrupt him.... Continue reading

This was a great wknd at the Ridge. I'm excited to see our volunteers grow to handle more and more skills at the live production level. As we grow at the Ridge, we are in a position where we are chainging away from the staff-driven Tech Culture to a Volunteer Culture. Transitions have been going well... yesterday's services were excuted almost completely in live-production with volunteers. I'm excited by the potential. We've come a long way in a very short time. Been re-reading Bill Hybel's Volunteer Revolution. What a great book! As church staff so often we find our individual... Continue reading

It's 4am. What better time to blog, right? Don't even know where to start. Last time I blogged was over a year ago. A lot has happened in that year. God provides. I look back on the chapters of my life. The times where things didn't make sense. I see now that they were all prologue for what He has before me now. Thank You, God, for being smarter than I. Thank You for giving me exactly what I needed (and not what I wanted). For those of you that do not know, Amy and I have moved the kids... Continue reading

Quick note. Thanks to everyone for showing up at my breakout. Had a blast putting it together. For those of you who weren't able to join us, we talked in depth on how to strategically plan what our services look like VISUALLY! The worship leaders spend a ton of time working with the teachers to coordinate the worship service audibly, but oftentimes we ignore the VISUAL aspect until the very end, and rush through it quickly. NO LONGER! Here's a quick outline for you: Visual Expressions of Worship (Intro) The Psychology of Color The Anatomy of a Song Complementary Colors... Continue reading

(sarcasm implied and hopefully understood...) What a crazy three weeks at CF. Started off with Family WKND, where CFKids brought a ton of excitement/energy into the worship center. Nickelodeon's got nothin' on us. Next up was CFPB's Acoustic Set, which brought a little bit of "chillax" into the worship center. Loved it. This wknd, CF Students took over the worship venue. They had a lot of fun with it too... When we say "took over," I don't think people really understand the magnitude of work CFStudents did this wknd preparing for the service. Not including the wknd, easily 100 man... Continue reading

Had some fun this wknd at CFPB doing an all-acoustic set... Violin, Cello, Double Bass, Acoustic Guitars, Piano, Drums, Conga/Toys... it was nice to mix it up the worship little bit... From the production standpoint, credit should go to (formerly) @steviewiwi, @therealfarr, @blanza, and @illestdunks for putting in major time redesigning the stage for the new worship elements. The service was AWESOME! The hard work paid off! As far as I'm concerned, @steviewiwi had the best mix of his life this wknd too! Unbelievable! Sammy was off campus this wknd, so I stuck around at CFPB to make sure things... Continue reading

Woke up wide awake at 2am. Enjoying the solitude of the moment. Check out @miBabyGirl sleeping in her new "Big Girl Bed" for the first time. Not sure if all kids are this way, but she is a contortionist-in-training when she sleeps. This is tame compared to some of the positions I find her balled up in. Good news is she sleeps like her mother. I was able to take this pic with iPhone 4's flash (in a pitch black room) and she didn't even flinch. Bad new is she sleeps like her mother, who is the reason I'm awake... Continue reading

10. Hey Steve, you're a great visionary and an incredible salesman. Get someone in your organization that can help you develop a plan to release new devices. Your servers were locked up on PreOrder day, and it took me 3 hours to PreOrder my phone. I wanted to ship the device to my house, but by using the iPhone app shipping to my house was not an option so I have to brave the store for pickup. Then on Release Day at the store I have to stand in line for 5 hours waiting to pick up my PreOrdered iPhone... Continue reading

What a GREAT DAY that started horribly... First the good. Today was awesome. So proud of our CFKids for putting on a GREAT SERVICE! The creativity in our student ministry is phenomenal. The stuff that they pull off, every week, is incredible. And to CFPB Media volunteers, who step up their game every week, thank you for making it happen. For more CFPB Family Day pics, check out http://bit.ly/CFPB_FamilyDay But this is the good, and I promised you the bad. CFPB's first Sunday srvc starts at 9am. I am in my office, printing up CFKids Drama scripts for the Deaf... Continue reading

Great night at CFPB. All CFMiami campuses are celebrating Father's Day by bringing the Way Station into the Worship Center. Games, Skits, Worship and a powerful message. Fun stuff... All 1st thru 5th graders, instead of going to the Way Station, joined the adults in the worship service. Well, don't tell anyone, but I snuck @miBabyGirl into the worship service during the games, worship and skit. So at some point this video cue gets fired on the VJ screen, and (according to Amy) @miBabyGirl says "OOOOOHHHH WWWWOOOOOOOWWWWW really loud. Yes, the CFPB Family Night has gotten the coveted @miBabyGirl #SealOfApproval...... Continue reading

My blog serves record that I am an incurable insomniac. Lately, it's been getting bad again (doesn't help that I got the flu on vacation this past week). "Coughing up a lung" is not meant to be literal, right?.. So, here's a top 10 for you... 10 Thinks I Think About (when I should be sleeping)... 10) It's now 3am. My alarm was set for 7am. That means I can really snooze # number of times before I'm late to work. 9) I've got 2 hours of Scrubs on TiVO. Why don't I get up and watch some of those... Continue reading

CF DriveTime, Christ Fellowship's radio show, has been on the air for a couple weeks now... but today we're kicking off our most recent sermon series, Created... CF DriveTime, for those of you not in the know, is Christ Fellowship's daily radio show. We broadcast on 90.9 LifeFM Monday-Friday 6:30-7:00pm. Show is made up of segments of teaching, coupled with commercial spots promoting some of CF's "Missional" ministries, and then wrap it up with some CF Original music. It's good stuff! We'll spend 2-3 weeks on Created, and then we're going OLD SCHOOL Rick Blackwood. Oh yeah baby! To listen... Continue reading

If you've made it into CFPB lately, you may have noticed our new digital backdrop, an 18.5' x 8' Projection Screen placed on the floor in the middle of the stage. Occasionally, CFPB volunteers come up with CRAZY ideas. Most of them I laugh off or use as a training session in reality. @robertcrisler posed this idea, and after measuring it's cost-effectiveness and usefulness, we jumped. Benefits of this are huge: During Worship portion of service, VJ is tightly integrated into camerawork. Next week, CFKids is coming in the WC, and among other things they are doing a skit. We're...

With the school year over, Amy and I took the opportunity to get away to contemplate some of life's dilemmas... like what to name @THATSmiBOY. Funny thing is, we've been struggling for months to come up with any names, and after an incredible dinner at a raw bar (that included island versions of your favorite Red Hot Chili Pepper songs) I'm proud to say we have a "frontrunner" for a name. And no, I'm not going to tell you yet. There's something to be said about stepping back, away from the grind, and evaluating. It's amazing to me how clear... Continue reading

Big news on the homefront. We announced that @miBabyGirl was going to be a big sister, and a couple days ago the doc told us that she'll have a little BROTHER. That's right, we're having a boy. Honestly we were happy either way. Really. But it's nice knowing we've got the set done (and hopefully we can hush any talk about a third...) Name for @THATSmiBOY? No idea. We will announce soon I'm sure (keep up with me on Twitter) but for now we cannot wait for the arrival of @THATSmiBOY Continue reading

One of my favorite things about serving at CF is the Ministry Rally's... especially the Breakout Sessions! We just released the Media Breakout Sessions for the Ministry Rally at CFPB this May. Find the one that's going to help you do what you do... BETTER! Invite the people you serve with! Bring a friend that can start serving! This is a great lineup of Breakouts... (As always, all Media Breakouts will start together, upstairs in the worship center by the sound board after the Main Session. Look for the loud-mouthed bald guy with a goatee yelling... you'll know where to... Continue reading

So, in case you hadn't heard through our Social Network connections, Caitlyn (aka @miBabyGirl) is going to be a big sister. In other words, we're pregnant... Exciting times in the Reed household... I'll spare you much of the details, but we're due November 14th. We're still early in the process, but according to the Doc everything is okay! Details beyond that, you're better off talking to Amy. Pray for us. We were hoping and praying for another child. Awesome to see God make it happen! Pray for Caitlyn. As you may know, she has struggled in recent months with her... Continue reading
