Our ministry is located in Richardson, TX with about 90 people on our team. We are a young team that works hard because we believe there is a greater purpose to our work than the work itself. There are three divisions to our ministry and each one has writing needs — Bluefish TV, The RightNow Campaign and Small Group Exchange.
Bluefish TV (www.bluefishtv.com) creates video resources used in tens of thousands of churches across the U.S. We work with well-known authors and leaders including Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Doug Fields, Louie Giglio, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott as well as others to produce relevant small group curriculum for youth groups and adult groups. In addition, we have produced hundreds of 2-3 minute video illustrations that pastors and teachers can use in their large group settings.
The RightNow Campaign (www.rightnow.org) is passionate about connecting 20 and 30-somethings to mission opportunities around the world. Our website, events and team of coaches has connected thousands of young adults to service opportunities through our network of 75 mission agencies. The Leadnow and Fusion Experience are two events the RightNow Campaign produces to reach this generation.
Small Group Exchange (www.smallgroupexchange.com) is a new website that we launched to provide training and resources for the millions of volunteer small group leaders across the country.
We have just relocated to our new building in Richardson (suburb of Dallas).
