Truth for Today

I hope everyone is having a blessed Easter season and will have a blessed Resurrection Sunday tomorrow! I’ll keep my post short this week so everyone can rest in the blessed hope of the Resurrection this weekend. As you’ve heard from previous posts, one of my favorite pastors I enjoy listening to is Dr. Neal Jackson of Beulah Baptist Church in Bennett, NC. Well, I’m happy to announce that Dr. Jackson can now be seen on the television through his new broadcast ministry, Truth for Today. Please take a moment to visit his website and learn when Truth for Today is broadcasting in your area, as you will truly receive a blessing each week with Dr. Jackson’s verse-by-verse expository preaching straight from the Word of God. I’ve set my DVR to record his messages each week, and I hope you’ll tune in each week! You’ll sure be glad you did! Have a blessed Easter and Resurrection Sunday!

Review: ProPresenter 4

Recently our church decided to upgrade our video graphics system due to the fact that our old graphics system was showing its age. After much research, we decided to go with a MacBook Pro for our hardware and RenewedVision’s ProPresenter 4 for our worship presentation software. We chose a MacBook Pro due to the fact that, for starters, since I would be overseeing much of the IT-related functions at the church, I’d rather work with a Mac because of the simplicity and reliability, as well as the Mac came pre-installed with software we’d need to use in the future, be more compatible with software we’d need to run in the future, and as I mentioned above, the simplicity and reliability of the platform just makes our work easier. ProPresenter was one of the main non-linear worship graphics presentation software applications available for Mac, and it’s truly currently the gold standard in non-linear worship presentation software, cross-platform (we’re also beta testing Proclaim from Logos, which does look excellent, but it’s far from being ready for production yet, we also loaded PowerPoint and Keynote on the Mac for running static slideshows when we need it). One of the nice features of ProPresenter is that it is a cross-platform application. This is especially helpful for users purchasing […]

Verizon iPhone Tips EVERY Verizon iPhone Customer Should Know!

In my last post, I covered my review of the Verizon iPhone 4. While I’m on the topic, I thought I would post some tips I’ve learned during my switch to the Verizon iPhone that every Verizon iPhone customer should know about. First thing’s first: Porting Your Number Over to Verizon The first question I get asked quite a bit from people interested in switching to Verizon is if their number can easily be ported over to Verizon from their existing carrier. The answer is, usually, yes. I was able to successfully port both of my existing AT&T numbers over to Verizon, and the move went extremely easy. There’s a quick way to check eligibility online, and it only takes a few seconds to see if your number will port. Chances are it will, and do so with ease. Phone Numbers Every Verizon iPhone Customer Should Know Here’s a list of phone numbers I keep in my contacts directory that every Verizon iPhone customer should probably keep in theirs. These phone numbers offer everything from customer service to carrier upgrades to checking usage: *611: This is the phone number for Verizon Wireless Customer Service. This handles everything from technical support to changing plans and features to account customer service. When something’s amiss, or […]
