By the way - the videocasts are great. Have you noticed any uptick in viewership over the podcasts?

Bill LaMorey

Thanks! We have a few improvements planned, but it will just take a little more manpower to manage.

The majority of people still utilize the podcast over the videos. However, we are watching the podcast #s go down a bit as some people are switching over to the videos.

I think videos are also being watched by people checking out the church. Which is great because I think it better communicates some of the feel. Though they miss the worship and of course all the wonderful people! :)

Bill -- Kevin B. here. You baptized me in 07. I'm so glad to see that you are addressing this subject. Sexual brokenness needs to be addressed by born-again churches, in a loving, Biblical way. Far too often, evangelical churches in this state still deal with "it" in a frigid-New England type of way. It unfortunate because ministries like Exodus out of Florida, some based in CA and TX deal with these issues so much more openly. As you can probably tell, this is a major issue for me both personally and as a ministry concern.

Better late than never is what I say. You'll be pleased to know that with an evangelical pastor playing the lead role, I am helping to start a support group for sexually broken men in our area. It is going to be para-church and not strictly confined to my home church. We don't plan on using a specific small group model, but I can promise you 1. It will be Biblical. 2. and it will allow for open discussion. We are looking to have our first meeting in late August. And I will be looking to get back in touch with you at that time. We probably will not meet at a church because some of the men who will participate probably haven't been to church in a long time and this may intimidate them. It will not be a "gay change" group because only God can change people. I'll leave you will a quote from Exodus Intl. - the opposite of homosexuality is not heterosexuality, but holiness. Talk to you soon brother.

I am glad to hear you are experiencing victory in Christ and being a redemptive tool in His hands, Kevin.
