Video Blogging/Confessional Idea for Your Next Retreat

 —  November 25, 2011 — 4 Comments

Genius! I loved this blog post from Paul Martin about making retreats more effective. One of his ideas there is ripe for stealing and claiming as your own (I do that all the time – doh!). Check this one out below, and head there for the rest:

5. Bonus, bonus – Also, I set up a video camera in a private room to let each person check in, a la The Real World, so that they can talk about their experience in private. When each of our students graduate, they get a video edited down of each of these “check ins” so they can see the growth they had over the years.

Love, love, love that.

  1. Thanks for the affirmation Josh! Any idea worth using ought to be worth stealing. Steal away!

  2. I have used the video confessional on our mission trips before. It is an awesome way to get students to open up real time to what they are seeing God do. And… it is helpful for creating a recap video
