Our New Community Leaders: Ben Terry & Dustin Stout!

A week ago I was looking for some serious support of my efforts here on this blog and I got some incredible applicants – it was hard to choose the right ones of the job!

But I’ve found two guys who have been around for a long time and who know not just the content surrounding this community but also the culture (which is a big deal).

They’re also up-and-coming TentBloggers in their own right and manage their own community and content with excellence – some of you will be already familiar with their incredible work!

Big ups to these two as the founding Community Leaders: Dustin Stout and Ben Terry!

Here were their two video applications:

Dustin Stout:

Dustin is all about:

Crafting and cultivating creative ideas and turning them into visual and verbal brilliance. tweet

That’s what I do. tweet

My blog, Dustn.tv, is a place where Christianity, Creativity, and Social Media collide. tweet

Glad to have you on board!

Ben Terry:

Ben is also an avid blogger, social-media consultant, and full-time student at Southern Seminary. tweet

Oh yeah!

Look for these guys to have an increasing role around these parts as they help me strategize this growing community. I really do appreciate their incredible leadership!

Awesomesauce! I hope to add more as the need arises – maybe you’ll sit alongside them one day?

    Loved Dustin’s video! If he rocked a microphone, I’d give it a 9 out of 10. But seeing as I’m a stickler for audio quality, I could only give it an 8 over all. But I definitely give the content a 10.

    I’ll be curious to see what your two new comm. leaders bring to the table. I need to do something like this. :)

      Thanks for the honest praise Ron! My set-up is an iPhone, and a tripod. Don’t have a great audio device that links to the iPhone yet… any suggestions?

    Great job guys! Congrats Dustin, the video was great. Overly sarcastic humor is always a joy!

    Congrats Ben! It’s great to see a guy from Louisville and a church that is so close to my heart in this arena!

      Thanks Caleb. That is really encouraging. Let me know if you every have any questions about Sojourn or Sojourn Network.

      Thanks Caleb! It took years of practicing on my parents and younger brother, but I think I’ve finally got a pretty good grip on the sarcastic humor thing. Thanks for noticing. ;)
