Show Notes:

This week on the podcast, I welcome back my friend Josh Williams. Josh has over 10 years of experience in the church media world and currently leads worship, production and stage design teams at Velocity Church in Greenville, SC. This week, Josh and I talk about adapting ideas from other churches. Check out the five filters we discussed and get free resources for your team below.

Here are the five filters for adapting ideas for your church that Josh and I discussed in this episode:


FILTER #1: What does your pastor want?

FILTER #2: What does your congregation want?

FILTER #3: What are your limitations?

FILTER #4: Don’t compare yourself to others.

FILTER #5: Remember that quality and resources aren’t mutually exclusive.
