Images are everything, especially if you are trying to communicate a story. And, in particular, photos that involve real people and real events go a long way in communicating that story to others. I talked about it in this blog post and I have also brought in Ben Shapely to talk about it as well.
Ben is the Creative Arts Pastor at Liquid Church in New Jersey. Ben has a lot of experience running So, today, Tom and Ben talk about:
- Ben’s work background
- What the purpose of photography and the Church is
- What kind of people are you looking for to take photos for the Church
- How do you train and equip them
- What kind of equipment do photographers need to have for your Church
What about you? Do you have a Photography team for your Church or ministry? How do you recruit, train and utilize them for the Church? Share your experiences below or on social media using #ymsidekick so we can all learn from each other.
To email Tom some ideas on future episodes email him here.
