Catalyst West Coast Financial Peace Mac Suite Winning Video

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

So, a few months ago our church staff attended its first Catalyst Conference. This was my fifth time to hit a Catalyst event but my first time on the West Coast. Needless to say we all loved it and hope to go back again next year if it fits our schedule and budget. 

One of the great things about Catalyst is the way they love on and care for leaders. It's an incredible place to be inspired, trained, and challenged. I especially love the creativity they put into every detail. 

While at this West Coast event our Kirby Staff took advantage of a contest sponsored by Dave Ramsey and Financial Peace University. They had a huge tent set up for pastors - it was a great place to relax get some free refreshments and meet other people in the ministry. Oh yeah - and enter the contest to win a Mac Suite worth over $4,000!

The challenge was to create a 30 min video (they video you while in the tent) expressing why your church deserved to win the Mac computers - complete with an iMac, MacBook, four iPad Mini's and a software package. 

The WINNING video below is what we came up with. Yes, that's right - we won the contest. We still can't believe it either. 

I want to take a moment to thank Catalyst, Dave Ramsey and the folks at FPU. We love the Macs and will are already putting them to good use - but we also love the way you guys invest in leaders and churches around the world! Hope to see you at West Coast 2014.
