While we are already comfortably into February of this year, I wanted to take a moment to thank our customers and users for a great 2014. We have gone through several changes in the last couple of years and I am so thankful for those who have hung with us and believed in the content that we provide.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It is an honor and a privilege to get to serve churches and faith-based organizations in the way we do.
I wanted to make a few observations about our past year and take a peek at 2015.
2014 was a big transition year for RT Creative Group. Since our 10 year lease was up in 2014 (it felt like the longest lease in history!), we decided it was time to move into a space that truly fits our company and it’s future. So several of us worked on our biggest project ever… our new space build-out. We finally moved into this space right at the end of 2014 (basically the last week!). We even had a ribbon cutting!
We do have just a couple regrets from 2014. Mainly, we didn’t fully complete some goals that we had set for ourselves. Two that come to mind pretty quickly are the Graceway 3.0 website and the quantity of original Igniter mini movies. Both of these areas suffered due to the large effort that went into our building project!
That said, I feel confident that 2014 has really prepared us well for what is to come in 2015. We are already working on some big projects for both Graceway and Igniter that we are extremely proud of. The new Graceway site will start being teased very soon, and the release of it should happen during the first quarter. Igniter is currently working on a very powerful, original mini movie called Broken Together… I can’t wait for churches to use this video.
One last thought. We’ve had some unexpected challenges at the beginning of 2015. Just like any other company, we have times of great celebration and times of hardship. These challenges have created an even greater dependency on the Lord, and I am encouraged to tell you that I am more focused on leading our team than I have been in its 12 year history. I will lead by leaning on the Lord in all things. This has always been my goal but now, thankfully, it's my absolute need.
Thank you for being part of our journey at Igniter Media and Graceway Media. As you lead your church or shepherd your flock, we pray that 2015 will be a year of changed lives for Christ… and we hope to play a small part in that.
Let us know how we can serve you!
CEO of RT Creative Group
