No matter what people say, these guys ARE good for something!
I've had the privilege of interacting with Van and Justin via the That Church Community and a Facebook group and I must say, these guys are scratching the itch that many church communicators had. I'm not talking about that place on your back you can't reach that probably itches because it hasn't been washed in years. I'm talking about the need for a community of practitioners collaborating in real time all over the world to make the Gospel easily the loudest thing our churches are about! When these guys are in their 70's, they're still going to be teaching us about communication done right.
They bring experience and insight to the conversation along with a network of people who are really in the trenches and aren't too cocky to promote unknowns before themselves. I love these guys and their heart behind what they do and I know you will too. Unless you're a terrible person.
