Dave Weiss Masters Portfolio 2017-2018

Video Content
I make a fair amount of video content with my ministry and share it via youtube as well as in my church and speaking ministry.

The Easter Conundrum which answers the question about why Easter falls on different days every year.

The Grateful Series
Each year, I speak at a camp for adults with development disabilities in Rome, New York. Our theme for Fall 2017 was on Gratitude, and I made these videos to go along with my messages.

Presentation Graphics
I do a lot of Powerpoint Presentations in my my ministry featuring original drawings. I will share a sampling pf the here.

My Webcomic Creacher continues. Creacher is a combination of Creature and Preacher and basically what I do is create a new creature each day (most days) and use that creature to comment on the issues of the day, matters of faith, etc. I also use these periodically to link to a page that gives the plan of salvation. I try to do these five days a week, but occasionally the demands of ministry and things like working on my masters keep that from happening. Basically it’s a creative way to spread the Gospel. The idea behind this comes from 2 Corinthians 5:17 from the KJV which refers to those who are in Christ as New Creatures. click the image below to take you to the site.









Paint Parties
One of the things I have really enjoyed lately is leading paint parties. They are great for fund raising and especially outreach.
Here are a few photos.


















The Imaginative Church Workshop


Occasionally I will help others realize their visions. My friend Paul Turner is a youth ministry consultant and a speaker. He wrote a curriculum for the camps he will be speaking at this summer. He needed a map style board to help students chart their spiritual growth.
