Bobby Gilles is one of the most gifted and effective communicators I know. He is an accomplished songwriter and story teller and heads up the very impressive communications team of Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, KY. I have had the privilege in recent years to get to know Bobby and benefit from his work. Specifically, I have learned how he has used the Internet to spread the vision and mission of Sojourn church in very practical and intentional ways and sought to implement much of what I’ve gleaned in my own context.
Having said that, I was really encouraged to receive a message from Bobby over the weekend about the announcement of a new website intended to help churches in numerous ways, including:
Put it this way. There are blogs I find essential for practical helps in ministry in the local church. If I want to find the best on productivity and effective administration, I go to Matt Perman’s blog, What’s Best Next? If I want to learn about practical pastoral helps, I go to Brian Croft’s blog Practical Shepherding. If I want to learn about all things worship, I go to Bob Kauflin’s blog, Worship Matters. And now, with Bobby Gilles’ new website, for help in exploring excellence in all forms of communication in the church, I recommend his blog My Song in the Night.
Add him to your RSS feed and check back regularly. Bobby knows what he is doing, and his gifts are a great asset to the kingdom!
