My 10 Favorites of Easter ’16

Easter At Ginghamsburg exceeded my expectations. I experienced a lot of God-Moments, not your every-day kind of Easter Worship Weekend. How about I share some of my highlights from this year’s weekend of celebration? 1. Pics of my grandkids. OK, OK, not part of the worship experience – but since they all live three states away the pics...

What’s Your WHY?

Identifying the WHY in our lives can feel so very empowering. Years ago I remember Pastor Mike saying that the key purpose of the sabbath is to re-identify the WHY in our lives. I love that concept. This past weekend while experiencing worship I remembered WHY I started writing years ago. I’ve always been a decent writer – just never...

Six Ways I Love Sixty

This isn’t a post you get to write just every day. I’m going to turn 60 in roughly 15 minutes I don’t see many positive posts about getting older, period. Perhaps it’s time to make a short list about the ways 60 is so, so much better than 40 or 30. Because if I don’t tell...

HAPPILY EVER AFTER: a stage design

One of the most frequent questions people ask Campus Designer Kim is, “How do you come up with all these ideas?” While not diminishing the rich wealth of my makeover teammate’s immeasurable input, part of my responsibility is pushing through each and every series, assuring I’ve collected the pool of creative thought neccessary to dream and build an...

RE:garding Cherries & Pits

If you were in listening proximity to Pastor Mike’s message this past weekend you are probably in some way trolling on our HAPPILY EVER AFTER? marriage message series @Ginghamsburg. It’s been widely popular and we can only imagine it is ringing a bell (sorry) for many couples – older, youngish and somewhere in between. Our...

My First Ginghamsburg Christmas

Hello all, Brianna here. I know we’re already two weeks into 2015, but is it too late (or too early) to talk about Christmas? I’ve always mourned how quickly we wrap up (puns!) the season. So I invite you to turn on your favorite Christmas tune, grab the last of whatever Christmas treats are still hiding in the cupboard, and reminisce with me...

Meet the Intern

Hello, all! You may have seen me quietly crafting in the background of recent design pictures, or perhaps you’ve spotted me on and off stage at Ginghamsburg, or maybe you’ve even mistaken me for Kim herself (yeah, it’s happened)! Well, let me properly introduce myself today as Brianna the worship design intern! (But you can call me Bri,...

#weareGRATEFUL

After several very “clean” and primary-colored summer stage designs we were quite the ready for a more organic, nature-filled, “autumn leaves” type environment for our November GRATEFUL series @Ginghamsburg.   One very hot day early in September, team guys Doug and Clark drove to a lumber mill in southern Ohio to fetch a pick-up truck full...
