The Big Deal About Singing by Jeff Deyo

We understand, at least we’re beginning to, that worship is so much more than music. Yet, as diligent as we must be in continuing to clarify this fact, we must also refuse to ignore the truth that worshiping God through singing itself is something uniquely powerful and entirely Biblical that must not be overlooked. It’s no secret. The Bible is chock full of singing scriptures—scriptures...

Outreach Spotlight: 321 Improv by Brian Narciza

I have a secret that I seldom tell people. My wife is aware of it and she loves me anyways but for the purposes of this post I have to come clean to the world. I…love improv comedy, there I said it. Something about unscripted jokes brings a smile to my face that other forms of humor can’t emulate. It’s interactive so you become a...

Parents Worst Nightmare by Clint Thomas

A parent’s worst nightmare is upon us! “SUMMER VACATION.” The fear of inactivity, lack of supervision and a realistic concern that tweens and teens will remain in vegetative, media-induced hypnotism all summer is just beginning to haunt their minds — not to mention the potential of high risk behavior. THE STATISTICS SHOW As educators, counselors and principals, the concern for our students’ well-being, retention of values,...

Thoughts from 30,000 Feet in the Air by Carl Crispin

I love staring out the window of the airplane as we cruise at 30,000 feet, looking down on the clouds. It gives me a sense of being closer to God and I always sense His power, His peace and His greatness when I’m looking out at the wonder of His creation. 321 Improv spends a lot of time on planes and it’s a great place...

School Lunch Strategies? by Gresham Hill

School Lunch Strategies (SLS) is a term we’ve coined to describe a very focused but effective method of building student and administrative relationships, growing your student ministry, and reaching more people for Christ.

Your Goal Is Not The High Priced Speaker by Gresham Hill

Currently, I’m pursuing Chip and Joanna Gaines, Mark Wahlberg, and Mike Rowe under my talent acquisition company, Gresham Hill, Inc. With our ministry, Reach Your City, I often help people bring in Bob Goff, David Nasser, or MAZE. But there is a consistent problem with the work that I do. The problem...

Lord of the Promise – Thoughts from Jeff Deyo

Here’s the big question. Who is Lord of the promise? Me or God? Wait for it… OK so this is a bigger issue than we think. There are over 8,000 promises in the Bible, and the question is, who is responsible to make them come to pass? Us or God? Obviously—just like with every Sunday School question—the answer is clearly, J.E.S.U.S. Unfortunately, however, even though we...

“God Uses Comedy for Ministry” – Carl Crispin from 321 Improv

I’ve been performing improv comedy for 20 years now. It started out as a way to get on stage and have fun. Then it became a part time job to make some extra money. Then it became my profession and a ministry God called me to be part of. I never dreamed I could make a living making people laugh. I certainly wouldn’t have made...

Zak Mirzadeh: Christian Illusionist, Speaker, and Former Muslim

“The Bubble” – Thoughts from Zak Mirzadeh

Why does it take everything in us to talk with strangers? Remember when we were kids, and this wasn’t the case?  Jesus affiliated Himself with tax collectors, prostitutes, and sinners. He hung out with the outcast. Why did he do this? Because Jesus went to inhabit other people’s space. Not his own environment … But theirs. “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in...
