3) BLOG UPDATE - L.A. CHURCH PRODUCES DORITOS SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL
Some folks at Mosaic Church in LA, which is led by Erwin McManus (one of my favorite authors and speakers) have created a Doritos Commercial which is in the running to air during the Super Bowl.

Itís one of the 6 finalists in Doritos Crash The Super Bowl contest, which means itís already netted itís creators $25k. The 3 commercials that get the most votes will air during the Super Bowl. The site doesnít show current vote totals, but if the number of views and comments are any indication (itís currently tops in both), ďCasketĒ is on its way to Miami.

5) INSPIRING VIDEO: COMPASSION INT'L PRESIDENT SPEAKS ABOUT HAITI

6) CONNECTING YOUR SITE TO FACEBOOK & TWITTER
Facebook and Twitter are great tools for connecting and engaging with people. Now you can better convert website visitors into Facebook fans and Twitter followers using the new NE1 Facebook and Twitter modules. These two new modules show your latest updates and put your visitors 1 click away from to becoming fans/followers. We recommend you use a template with an editable sidebar and put them in the sidebar so they'll be displayed on every page. For more info on adding these modules see the Facebook module and Twitter module help pages:

http://www.ourchurch.com/help/help-modules-twitter-widget.php

7) NEW NE1 TEMPLATES AND IMPROVEMENTS
We've got one new NE1 template this month, "I have a dream." Unfortunately, we were a few days late for MLK Day, but this template can be used as a unity/diversity theme throughout the year. Additionally, because the new Facebook & Twitter modules are best placed in an editable sidebar, we've started going back through and adding an editable sidebar to many of our existing templates.

NE1 TIP O' THE MONTH
--------------------
If you use Facebook or Twitter, choose an editable NE1 template and add the new Facebook and NE1 modules to the sidebar.

WEBSITE SPOTLIGHT: Buckhead Baptist Church - http://www.buckheadbaptist.org
-----------------
Buckhead Baptist Church is "a mainstream Baptist Congregation with a traditional perspective" located in Atlanta, GA. Buckhead Baptist first contacted us about creating a custom website for them back in 2007. At that time we developed a new website for them that included a calendar, staff directory, media gallery and more. After 2 years with that site, Buckhead Baptist asked us to redesign their site to give it a new look while maintaining all the content and functionality. That redesign was completed earlier this month.
