Not long ago Bobby shared with you an interview he conducted with a key volunteer on his Sojourn communications team and the leader of our photography ministry, Chuck Heeke. If you missed that interview about how to start, grow and utilize a photography ministry at your church, read it here.

For now I thought I’d let you see one practical way we use photography to tell the story of many events at our church campuses, like:

  • Health clinics
  • Festivals
  • Mercy ministry projects

and more. This past Sunday we launched the fourth Sojourn campus, and the first to operate outside the city limits of Louisville, Sojourn New Albany. The Indiana town of New Albany is just across the Ohio River from Louisville.

Bobby and I live in New Albany and have been praying and working towards the launch of this campus. I was blessed to be a part of the Sojourn Music worship team that led worship at our campus launch. You can jump over to our church’s official blog, TravelBlog, to see the way Bobby used Chuck’s great photography to tell the story of our launch Sunday.¬†

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Photo blog posts like the one linked above¬†get a lot more blog traffic than most posts. People feel almost like they were there, when they can see the pictures. And its especially a blessing to some of our foreign missionaries and church planters that we’ve sent to different parts of the U.S. To them, its almost like getting to come home again.
