Announcements Church Vitality Fresh Expressions Missions and Outreach

Enter the Fresh Expressions video competition for a chance to win $1,000. You don't have to be a professional videographer to participate in the contest. All you need is a smartphone and a video editing app. There are plenty of apps available for free online.

"We decided to have a contest with incentives," said Janet Earls, Director of Congregational Vitality and Fresh Expressions steering committee member. "I believe contests are good for stimulating creativity, a little competitiveness and inspiring others. We look forward to the results and sharing at Annual Conference."

Fresh Expressions pioneers Revs. Kevin Griffin and Ben Collins put together a quick informational video using nothing but an iPhone to show how easy it is to make a submission. Check it out!

Attn all Florida UMC Fresh Expressions! We have a video competition which starts today! Watch this video below to hear details and how you can win $1000 for your FE! Also this video was filmed and made in less than 30 minutes on an iPhone! No excuses- tell us about the good work God is doing in your FE!

Griffin had more to say on why participation will be so important: "I think that the stories of our current Fresh Expressions will inspire even more churches and clergy in the Florida Annual Conference to get involved in the movement, after they see how simple it is to launch a Fresh Expression in their neighborhood with the potential to reach people who would never otherwise attend a worship service."

So, why enter the competition? Because you could:

  • Win $1,000 to bolster your Fresh Expression to the next level
  • Show off your ministry at Annual Conference or the separate streaming event
  • Inspire others to start their own Fresh Expressions
