EPISODE 019: Adapting Ideas from Other Churches with Josh Williams (Part Two)


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 continue our discussion about adapting ideas from other churches. This week we give you filters for taking ideas and making them your own.

Here are the three filters for making ideas from other churches your own that Josh and I discussed in this episode:

FILTER #1: You are only seeing their finished, polished product. Not the original rough draft.
FILTER #2: Ask Questions.
FILTER #3: Put your own spin on it.
