Over the years, I have discovered the power of multiplying the life and ministry of the senior pastor by producing video-based curriculum. This easy to use tool is a catalytic force in launching 50 percent or more of your church into small groups. While you could spend a lot of money and hire a professional production team, the reality is most churches have the ability with the staff, volunteers and equipment they have to produce a publisher-quality curriculum for themselves. Curriculum Production Coaching will take you step by step the process to not only give you a beautiful and effective new curriculum, but also to train your team and give you a “printing press” to continue creating curriculum in the years ahead.

“Allen White coached my team and me through the creation and execution of Mt. Horeb UMC’s first in-house church-wide campaign. He was a phenomenal coach providing step by step direction with patient explanations of not just the “how’s” but the “why” beyond various aspects of the project. Our “More” Campaign was so successful that our work was used at a recent UMC conference event demonstrating the possibilities of home grown video resources. Beyond that, we were able to provide our resources to other churches to inspire and encourage. Thank you, Allen for giving so many churches the tools to reach the world for Jesus Christ!” — Claire Andrews, Mt Horeb United Methodist Church, Lexington, SC

Your groups want your pastor’s teaching more than anyone else’s teaching. In fact, the people who aren’t in groups in your church are there because of their connection to your senior pastor. They like his teaching. They like his personality and style. They laugh at his jokes. Caution: Don’t mention this to your worship pastor, it will break his heart. When your pastor offers exclusive video teaching for your groups, people will volunteer to lead groups like nothing you’ve ever seen. We offer full service video production for DVD and streaming delivery. Cost varies depending on the complexity of the content and the video shoot. For more information: email@example.com
Curriculum Writing and Scripting
While some churches feel they have a pretty good handle on creating teaching videos, they feel the other way about creating the study guide. Our curriculum writing team has decades of experience and biblical expertise. We endeavor to match the voice of your senior pastor and articulate the values and culture of your church.
We will take your sermon notes, audios, or videos and create 10-minute scripts for your video shoot. Whether you are using our full production services or shooting the video yourself, we will take the hard work out of video production by writing the scripts for you. Our goal is to get the scripts 80% there, then will depend on you to personalize the scripts, so they still sound like your words! Scripts can typically be finished in 7 days. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Your video teaching is only 50% of the equation. You also need an effective study guide to help your group members apply the teaching to their lives and begin to live it out. We have written for a variety of the projects listed above including study guides for Chip Ingram, Doug Fields, and others. For more information, contact email@example.com
We will also teach YOU to write your own curriculum. This can happen in two ways. You can either shadow our team as we create your curriculum and learn as we go, or you can join the 4-week live online course, the Writing Effective Curriculum Workshop, that begins on 10/31/2018. For more information, go here.
Our designers have created not only the art for the projects listed above, but have served on the staff of churches and know the likes and dislikes of pastors. The most important thing is producing something that matches the culture and demographic of your church — highly creative to conservative — whatever appeals the most to your church and your community.
Some churches have the chops to do the whole project, but learning to create video-based curriculum is a different genre of both video and writing. With Curriculum Coaching, we can guide you through every stop in our 10 week process from concept development to the finished project. This Coaching also includes onsite direction on the day of your video shoot, so every detail is covered. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
