Not that long ago, we came back from our Easter service. Not too surprisingly there were a few differences I noticed from the last few.

First, this was the first time in a few years I haven't been running graphics for Easter services. More about at least part of why that was later. On a more drastic front, this service was held outside, at the Oceanside Amphitheater -- right on the beach just south of the Oceanside Pier. This is also a very large event, and the church brought in a number of outside speakers in addition to the regular message by Pastor Shawn.

One thing that I noticed that was a big difference between how New Venture Christian Fellowship does this event and how Wheaton Bible Church has done similar events. As near as I could tell, with the possible exception of the person providing the lyrics for the musical part of the worship, the entire technical crew were hired professionals; whereas Wheaton Bible Church as almost always used their regular volunteers for similar events.

I can understand this from the camera crew completely, since New Venture has remote control cameras in their facility so none of our volunteers are used to regular camera work. But we do have regular sound technicians who should be capable of running sound for the event.

In spite of these differences, the key message was the same, and the message is what is important.
