A Goodbye to Neighborhood

A couple of weeks ago I tweeted…

The “tough decision” had already been made a month earlier when I accepted a Sr. Designer position at Logos in Bellingham, WA.

This was indeed a tough decision, one Heidi and I had prayed and talked about since getting the recruitment call back in December. Our time in Redding has been good and we’ve made some life long friends here.

At Neighborhood, all the things we set out to build when first arriving nearly two years ago; the communications department, the branding, the communication guidelines, the online presence and livestreaming have all recently come together to form a solid foundation for furthering the Neighborhood mission of helping people find and follow God. Additionally, I’ve had a hand in the planning of the AVL and interior design for the new Neighborhood worship center which is currently in progress and slated to open this fall.

So why leave?

The opportunity to join a team focused on delivering the Bible to millions and equipping the church through design and technology. That’s it and I couldn’t be more eager to learn, grow and create in that space.

To those of you who followed this blog and hit me with feedback regarding everything we have been building at Neighborhood and church communications in general: First, thank you for your questions, encouragement and prayer for me and my family. Second, you should follow my sidekick Caleb Warren who will soon take the torch leading the comm. team at Neighborhood.

Thanks for following along.



We launched the new this week. Here’s a look at the process.

The Plan

This project meant starting from scratch, building a site that would bring the online home of Neighborhood into the modern age (the current site was 6 years ancient) and bridge the many gaps we were currently facing in promotion and connection of ministries, events, giving and teaching.

Justice League. Happy Hour.

Sacramento Comic Con

We attended our first Comic Con as a family this weekend. It just so happened to be Sacramento’s first Wizard World Comic Con and it was a great experience. From purchasing tickets online to the use of the Ticketleap service and navigation of the convention floor using the Wizard World app, it was low stress and simple making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. Props to the Wizard World Comic Con planners for programming that served the over 10,000 people that attended.  

Here’s a look at our time there this weekend.
