I’ve been at the Methodist Congress on Evangelism this week with Chuck Russell. This is the annual national evangelism conference for the United Methodist denomination. Chuck and I were asked to present on the role of a congregation’s website in evangelism. Chuck covered the basics and I talked about sermon content delivery, social networking and social media, and Internet Campus.
For fun, I used EVDO on my cell phone and a web cam to live stream our presentation via the Clif Guy Cam on uStream. When I verified that my EVDO signal was strong enough to support the live stream, I tweeted and within minutes we had 10 people watching. The third time we gave the presentation, I recorded it. You can watch it here. Sure, the video production values are so non-existent it’s comical. Despite that, the video gives a pretty good sense of the presentation.
