For the past two years I’ve been reflecting on the future of Off The Map. After consulting with our board and key volunteers, it appears to us that Jesus is happy with us having evolved Off The Map out of business…read more…
We’re Saying Hello to Jim Henderson Presents
I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I’m a producer. I discovered this through the assistance of 20/20 hindsight. Over the past 15 years I’ve produced books, shows and events. I delight in taking new ideas to market especially those that have something to do with taking Jesus public.
Producers do 5 things. I call them the 5 Cs. (To learn why you really do want a producer, click here.)
1. Create – they have an idea (their own or other peoples) they need to express
2. Collect – they gather a team such as, directors, actors, musicians and editors
3. Cash – they raise, earn and beg for money to fund their projects
4. Courage – they’ve had a backbone transplant, one made of titanium
5. Crazy- they aren’t normal, failure is just another word for learning
These are the practices that have shaped my work. It wasn’t until the past couple of years that I became comfortable calling myself a producer but the reality is that is what I’ve always been. When I was playing music as a young person any band I fell in with I ultimately led and produced.
Even as a pastor I was more interested in producing leaders, apprentices and life altering events than I was in preaching or visiting people in hospitals. That’s why I’m excited to announce my new company Jim Henderson Presents. JHP provides me with an avenue into the entertainment industry. I’m moving in this direction because entertainment is the most trusted institution in existence today. The instruments of entertainment such as TV, music and movies are the most effective ways to access people’s imaginations a.k.a. the welcome mat of the heart.
I currently have several ideas I’m developing including a religious reality TV show, but the project I’m most excited about is my new book, “The Resignation of Eve – What If Adams Rib Is No Longer Willing To Be The Church’s Backbone.”
The book is being released on February 1 online and in national bookstores. You can pre-order it now from most online bookstores.
Following the release of the book we plan to launch The Resignation of Eve (RoE) Tour. If you or your church community would be interested in this, let’s talk.
Having produced live events for over 15 years, I look forward to applying those skills to events that feature some of the women I’ve interviewed in the book and hundreds of other women who need to know they aren’t crazy, stupid or the only ones asking serious questions about the way the church treats women.
