Here are five samples of presentations I have created, and showing ways I have distributed them.
If the original files (Keynote or PowerPoint) or if printouts of them are desired, please email me or call 832-576-6716.
In the last four years I have been making presentations almost exclusively with Apple Keynote program. I am still very comfortable with PowerPoint, but find the quality of Keynote to be superior. As you can see from sample 4.a-c, I am able to export presentations as HTML (for posting to a website without any further encoding), as PowerPoint, or HD streaming video format (mp4).
Note: to ensure presentations maintain fonts, formatting, etc., it seems wise to share them here in HTML format and as HD videos (posted on Vimeo.com). If the original files (Keynote or PowerPoint) or if printouts of them are desired, please email me or call 832-576-6716.
1. A Presentation For Vision Clarity Process
Intro: This presentation was created and then recorded with audio by me so that it was a fully self-playing presentation. While I sought to get face to face with all the leaders I was trying to recruit to this vision clarity and planning process, I knew some would be unavailable, and I wanted everyone to have something to refer back to as they processed their decision. It is shown here as a self-playing HTML presentation. Another version, with live video intros by key leaders was also produced as a video on Vimeo.com for sharing.
2. “Basket Of Hope” Engagement Presentation
Intro: I created this slideshow for a fundraising and awareness event for my wife, Mary Beth’s charity (a local branch of a national 501(c) 3). The event was to tell the story of our charity and invite people to engage financially and/or as volunteers.
Note: The venue limitations called for it to be in 4:3 format. I did not create the video embedded on slide 3, but used it with permission of the national office of the charity (BasketofHope.org) to help local people grasp what they are helping to accomplish on a national scale–one child at a time.
3. Lent 2014 Presentation Template & Slides
Intro: I designed the presentation template for this Lenten series to heighten the emotional connection to the last 24 hours of Jesus’ Passion. It was a consistent look that made this an impactful series for many. This is a self-playing version that demos each slide for about 7 seconds.
4.a. WHO I Am part 2- I Am A Branch (John 15 Study) SELF-PLAYING-HD
Intro: I designed this template to use colors as a reinforcing support of each week’s theme and a connection to the whole series. This is the same presentation as https://vimeo.com/fishersofmensl/whoiam-part-2-i-am-a-branch (note: password protected-contact Jerry if you do not have this), except this is self-playing (3:11 length just to show each slide for about 7 seconds). That version is recorded to advance in sync with the full audio of the 26-minute sermon.
“Who I Am–Fulfilling The Identity Jesus Gave You” a teaching series with study helps from Fishers Of Men Lutheran Church, Sugar Land. Originally used October 14-November 4, 2012. A four-week teaching series, Pastor Jerry McNamara points to the anchors of our identity that Jesus reveals in John 15.
Note: Additional videos, study guides and content were produced with this series to allow small groups or couples to have a study that matched and deepened the Sunday teaching (other pieces of this series are also in this portfolio). You can see all these at fishersofmen.org/whoiam.
4.b. Who I Am part 2-I Am A Branch-HD (with original sermon audio 26:54 length)
Intro: “Who I Am–Fulfilling The Identity Jesus Gave You” a teaching series with study helps from Fishers Of Men Lutheran Church, Sugar Land. Originally used October 14-November 4, 2012. A four-week teaching series, Pastor Jerry McNamara points to the anchors of our identity that Jesus reveals in John 15.

4.c. Who I Am part 2-I Am A Branch-HD
Intro: This is the same presentation as before, except it is formatted as HTML and exists directly up our website. This requires manual advancing, but also allows for pausing longer or going back to an earlier slide (click or tap over by the left margin). There is no audio.
5. Sermon Presentation with engaging animation effects
Intro: This presentation template went for a minimalist, mostly-black approach. The stoplight was to trigger thoughts of drag racing and starting lights; hoping to help people see that God is inviting them to be in the mission-of-making-disciples “race” not just think about it or spectate. I used some animation effects to keep people engaged.
Note: This presentation created in Keynote was exported as HTML, and uploaded to our website (via FTP); allowing for the original animations, etc. to be preserved.
