Beginning December 17th, I’m going to begin a fairly large undertaking – preaching through the book of Matthew. I’ve been feeling led to preach strictly on Jesus for a few months. Over the last two years I’ve really dug into commentaries on Mathew (particularly MacArthur’s commentary) and was reminded of the fact that Jesus was quite the rebel. Thus the title of series will be "Revolution" – focusing on the unconventional way that Jesus lived, taught and thought.
I’m really stoked because we’ll start the series the week before Christmas with Christ’s genealogy (He came from la ong line of rebels) and finish two weeks after Easter with His ascension. It’s the longest series we’ve ever done at Compass Point, however we have some pretty crazy things up our sleeve in order to keep it interesting. Not that the life of Christ is not interesting enough.
Anyway, we started pumping it tonight by dropping the video commercial for it on YouTube and the MySpace sites of our regular attenders. We’ve also got a Facebook campaign that will go out the middle of next week. We’ll kick the video during the next two services also, as well as the podcast. By the end of the week they’ll be a buzz about it on the local college campuses. It’s crazy how marketing is done these days? It’s even more crazy how little cost is involved with reaching younger 20-somethings!
