In My Spare Time Last Week

I go to The Point Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I was talking to my pastor on a Friday afternoon and he mentioned he wasn’t quite sold on the theme art for his new sermon series. There are a ton of items that have to be printed for a sermon series; bulletins, cd covers, slides, big visuals, etc. and all the art had to be ordered by Sunday afternoon. He explained his concept and wondered if I might want to take a crack at it before he pulled the trigger on the printing. I got up on Saturday morning, cranked out this piece of art, sent it to him and said, “hey, you won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t want to use it”… but he used it…

…of course, now the stage design had to be altered. I said, “hey, we could do something like this”…

…and we went with that idea also. Turned out pretty much the way it was drawn up.

I was sweatin’ bullets at one point because it’s one thing to draw up a quick sketch of an idea, it’s a totally different thing to try to execute it. I ended up building the plug head out of cardboard boxes…

  1. Dennis… Golly gee Whiz man… you really take the cake when it comes to creative ideas and going mach 2 with your hair on fire to get them done. Love the idea and now I have been practicing to see if I can learn to move like the flash to maximize my spare time these days. So far i have cleaned off my drawing table…
    So did people get plugged in to the sermon on Sunday? How was the reception? I betcha your props got people all wired for worship, huh? Well, I guess it’s what my pastor meant that we should be a recepticle of God’s grace.
    Thanks for the inspiration,

    • Wow. Dennis you are the cake maker! Love your 3-D creativity you’ve been sharing with us lately. Nice, very nice. Thanks!

      Praise Jesus!


  2. My pastor usually asks me to draw something for him about 2 days before he needs it and I have to hustle to get it done… I’m never complaining again. You not only drew it but built it, and it looks Great!! You’re an inspiration and a terrific artist. Wow, keep up the good work! -Mark

  3. Is there anything you can’t do? 🙂 I heard a rumor that you were going to be the quarterback for the Colts this year!
