Have you ever had someone begin a conversation with you in that fashion? We think to ourselves, “I know where this is headed. It’s some kind of sales pitch.” Oh, not the kind they show on late night TV with the guy yelling at you about the latest and greatest this or that you absolutely have to have, but we think “sales pitch” nonetheless.
Well, I’d like to take the time to introduce you to something we’ve been working on for some time now. Recently we’ve launched a new website, Facebook page and Twitter account all for a new non-profit that’s growing.
Over the past several years I’ve been reading posts by the likes of Michael Hyatt and Seth Godin. And let me just say that they’ve influenced some of my thinking. I blog about them from time to time, and I think they’re the most popular items of my posts.
Well, in the spirit of what they are doing, we’ve created Life Changer Studies. We are developing DVD-based Bible studies for Small Groups and individuals alike. We include a set of Small Group questions at the end of each lesson and provide in-depth study questions and answers as pdfs on each DVD.
And you ask, “John, how’s that any different?” Ok, I’ll tell you. We create these DVD under a Creative Commons copyright that gives the purchaser permission to copy the DVDs for use with their people as long as they don’t sell them! Who ever heard of that?
And, we’ve uploaded all of the Small Group questions and in-depth questions and answers for download on the website, www.lifechangerstudies.com. Our first study, Sermon on the Mount, is out, the second, Party Frosting, is currently in production.
The first study is also being translated into Spanish, and the 4th study, Living Your Dash, is filming this month in HD! So go check out the website and read our history, our vision, etc. You can sign up for our newsletter to stay informed as to what’s going on with this crazy team of people who just believe that something like this can be done!
Oh, and by the way, at least 10% of every study sold will be donated to a clean water project in Africa through our friends at Compassion!
Tell us what you think. IS this a crazy idea or what?
