What is up with Believe this year YO!

8/31/06

Fellow Jr high workers,

I have been so slammed at Believe HQ these past few weeks. This is when I really feel like we are in our element at Believe. We have the best staff of people as artists this year we have ever worked with. You know what is like when you are just in the thick of it. I’ve been there and what God is doing is cool. It’s exciting to see all the pieces for the new tour come together. This has all been rolling around and playing out in my head for about 11 months. That is why it is weird when it finally starts to take shape in the garage and with people showing up ready for rehearsals. I just wanted to share with you what we’ve been working on all year:

First, There are a few places you can go to get new Believe videos. You know last year how we did the Leaders Video on line to save time for you at the event. Well I am especially stoked about how we did that this year. We did what we do best . . . complete sarcasm To get videos of Believe artists like One Time Blind; promotional videos to show friends/youth group or our intentional jr high speakers like Mark Oestreicher go to http://www.youtube.com/user/jj122196 (my u-tube account) or check out our podcast on I-tunes keyword CIY Jr High Believe. This is going to be an awesome year! You can also always visit us on the web www.jrhighbelieve.com

Another new thing to our program this year is a line of curriculum that will collaborate with the theme of Believe this year, Jesus, in 9 lessons. We have never done curriculum like this before so we really did our homework. These lessons will work great if you attending one of our national events. There are 2 for before the event and 7 after or you can do 3 before and 6 after. The 3rd lesson is a floater that gives the youth leader more control. Check it out at: www.jrhighbelieve.com/curriculum_new.htm

And on a personal note; Jen and I got the new expansion deck to the card game “Killer Bunnies”. If you don’t know what this card game is you are missing out. Get it!- Ebay. Anyway, it was awesome. We played with friends until about 11:30. I pray God is blessing you and your students as you start the fall semester. Don’t be strangers. Email me about your ministry.

peace
