As we head into Easter weekend, I need to let you know what you’ve done this year has been remarkable. . Despite the obstacles and the challenges thrown your way, you have managed to create an Easter experience for your church that will change the lives of those in your community. . Your creativity is inspiring. Your passion is infectious. Your love is contagious. . Keep being you and pass on empowerment to the creatives in your life. . Love, y’all. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


By nature, creatives are good at identify problems and devising solutions. However, there’s also a trap in our business that closes when we focus too much on the negative — cynicism. There is a toxic idea that the right-of-passage to be a true creative is to be cynical. Stop the cynicism. Loving things is okay. #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


This is a season of disruption. . This crisis has accelerated change in your life. . For those that might be resistant to change, this can feel like a downright assault on our way of life. . But, I want you to see something with me: . The Bible gives us insight as to what God can and cannot do. . Malachi 3:6 says: For I am the Lord, I change not. . Same is true for Jesus: . Hebrews 13:8 says: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. . However, the same IS NOT true for everything in the created universe. The earth is by design is meant to have seasons, to evolve, to grow, to change. . Anytime you say, ‘THIS CANNOT CHANGE!’ what you are essentially saying is ‘THIS THING IS LIKE GOD.’ And you elevate that thing to the position of GOD. . Anytime something takes the place of GOD — it becomes an idol. . GOD is destroying some idols for you. HE is showing us that while your delivery may change, while your structure may change, while the physical church may change — HE is STILL GOD, and HE DOES NOT CHANGE. . That said, I want you to embrace the changes that are happening in your life and destroy idols — coming at everything with an open mind and ways you can grow in this season. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


If you’re going to succeed during a crisis, here’s what you need to be. . Creatives. Start swiping. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


I just wanted to drop into your feed and let you know that even though this season may feel scary, what God has brought you to, He will bring you through. . Paul says in Philippians 1:6: . "I am certain of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." . Here are five other verses for creatives in a crisis. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner

There are some benefits to being alone this much, and maybe this time of isolation can be a time that propels you forward. . Swipe to see more. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


We are living in unpredictable times. Over the past few days, we have been presented with problems we never thought we’d have. This might have you worried as to your role as a creative moving forward. Today, I want to put your mind at ease and remind you the future is creative. Your role is expanding, and you are going to be relied on more as we face unprecedented problems. The world needs your imagination and innovation to rethink the way we’ve always done things. The future is creative. #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


I was thinking about how often we can forget to encourage the people close to us. . Each day each of us deals internally with struggles, anxieties, and fears. . Sometimes a simple reminder from a friend is all you need to reframe your life. . Be that friend. . The world is lucky to have you. . #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


This year I will celebrate like 15 years online. Being as opinionated as I’ve always been, I’ve dealt with some opposing views. More importantly, I’ve had my share of negative comments. I wanted to share my process. This is how I deal with them. Because every interaction online is a chance to make a new friend. #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


Here's what I've learned about 'no': It's not always as definite as it sounds; sometimes 'no' can be an opportunity to exercise creativity. What I do know for sure is saying 'no' is the only way to protect your schedule and prevent yourself from being overworked. That said, when our bosses or clients drop extra work onto your task list, you don't always feel in charge of your 'no.' That's why I've always relied on creative diplomacy to help me say, 'no' when I can't add more to my plate. Swipe through to see what I mean. #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner


The purpose of creativity in the church is NOT to SHAPE our version of God to the world.‬ . It is to ALLOW HIM to move through our creativity to say what HE wants to say. . Surrender must become the natural disposition of creatives in the church. #CRTVCHURCH x @nikgoodner
