Mindful Worship News – July 22, 2014
It's an exciting time here at Mindful Worship! We wanted to take a moment to let you know about several of the things that are happening.
Meet Steve Dalton, Our New Product Manager
We are very happy to welcome Steve Dalton to the Mindful Worship team as our new Product Manager!
Steve spent almost ten years in the business world, most of it as a branch manager for Washington Mutual Finance, before becoming a pastor in 2001. Two years later, he received a Masters degree in Religion from Liberty University. In 2005, the Dalton family moved to Wilmington, North Carolina where they live today. He and his wife homeschool their 4 children (ages 2-15).
Steve was introduced to meditation by a counselor and soon developed a desire to make Biblically-based guided meditations more available and accessible. A few months ago he met Ricky Spears who shared the same passion for God's Word and the desire to help people through guided meditations on scripture. Steve is energized by what God is doing through Mindful Worship and is excited to be a part of the changes taking place at Mindful Worship. If you get a chance, please take a moment to leave a comment or send an email to welcome Steve to the team!
New Weekly Meditations Are Back!
Last week we released Mindful Worship Meditation #32 - The Fruit of the Spirit is Gentleness. This is the ninth of a ten part series on "The Fruit of the Spirit" from Galatians 5. Many of you waited a really long time for this one and we greatly appreciate your patience.
With Steve on board, we are committed to producing new meditations on a weekly basis! You shouldn't have to wait weeks or months for the next meditation, as has been at times in the past. Look for the next meditation, "Mindful Worship Meditation #33 - The Fruit of the Spirit is Self Control," to be posted on Thursday of this week.
A New Posting Schedule
We want to provide you with more than just great Christian guided meditations. To do this, we've developed a schedule for posting new content here at Mindful Worship:
- Tuesday - "Mindful Worship News." In these posts, we'll let you know what's been happening recently and what's coming up here at Mindful Worship.
- Thursday - A fresh, new Christian guided meditation--each and every week!
- Sunday - "Changed Lives". We receive lots of positive feedback from listeners like you who let us know how much you appreciate the work here and how these meditations are helping you in your walk with Christ. Each Sunday, we'll be sharing some of these with you as both a praise to our Lord and to hopefully encourage you too. If you have a testimonial or story about how this ministry has helped you, we would love to hear it, and we may include in "Changed Lives."
If there are other types of content you would like to see here, leave us a comment or contact us and let us know what it is.
New Outlets, Channels, and Purchase Options
In addition to being released on our website, meditations are now available for purchase and download in the iTunes store, Amazon Music store, the Google Play store, and eMusic. You can still subscribe to the site for only $10 for 3-months, but if you prefer to purchase meditations Ã la carte, you now have that option. We plan to add all future meditations to these online music stores as we publish them. Over time, we hope to add our full catalog of past meditations as well.
Along with this, we are making some of our meditations available on the following online radio services: Rdio, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody, Spotify, Xbox Music, and 24-7 Entertainment (in Europe and Canada).
We hope you are as excited as we are about these changes! Our prayer is always that God will use each word to draw people into a closer and deeper relationship with Him.
