All things communication, internal and external. Crafting or coordinating literature, visual and audio communication that presents the elders’ vision of gospel transformation and community. In the words of the famous hymn, I “tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love” as it is expressed and taught through the Sojourn community. Online, we express this through this website, a network of blogs, and social media. I regularly write for our online journal, TravelBlog, as well as sojournmusic.com. I also record short interviews with Sojourn pastors, deacons, staff and members in the Inside Sojourn podcast and I write about church communications, songwriting and tips for giving your personal testimony at mysonginthenight.com, which also includes audio for all the worship songs of mine and my wife, Kristen Gilles.
