Here's a little something we've been doing...

Sometimes when you empower students, they try to simply replicate whatever you have asked them to resemble. Other times, they take the idea and completely change it around. We have a number of announcements that we have to make clear to our group on a regular basis. But the talking head from the stage is generally useless or at least very much less effective than doing something to change the medium of communication. Enter Video Announcements.

We were at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference and got a taste of the Original Video Announcements and thought that it would be a great way to communicate all the things that are going on around our ministry. This is the original:


So we showed that to our student interns last year and they produced videos like this one:


And we showed this year's student interns with the original and they came up with videos like this:

I wonder what our next version will look like!

How do you communicate announcement type information to your students?
