Presentations by Joe Schillero
Most of Joe's teachings are multi-media presentations that are approximately 1 hour in length. They are shared on PowerPoint and contain pictures, audio sound bites, video clips and plenty of Scripture. They can be shared individually for Sunday School classes, Sunday morning worship services, conferences, or keynote addresses. They can also be combined to provide 1/2 day and full day media seminars as well as weekend retreats.
1. BUT I DON'T LISTEN TO THE LYRICS
This presentation is specifically designed to challenge your youth group about their music selections. Today's popular video's and song lyrics will be examined in the light of God's Word. It will convict, challenge and exhort young people about what it means to be a 'committed follower of Jesus Christ.'
2. THE MESSAGE BEHIND THE MEDIA
Every movie has a message, every song is a sermon and every TV program has a philosophy. Colossians 2:8 challenges us with this exhortation, "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ". This presentation will examine the messages behind today's popular movies, TV programs, music and other forms of media; making sure that we are not being taken captive by philosophies that are contrary to the Word of God.
3. THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE 2 DOGS
At the moment of salvation, all believers in Christ experience a new birth (2 Corinthians 5:17). We also enter a war zone! One of those wars is an 'internal war' between the flesh and the Spirit (Galatians 5:17). This presentation will show us how our entertainment and media choices will determine whether or not we are 'walking in the Spirit' or 'walking in the flesh' when it comes to our walk with Jesus Christ.
4. GUARD YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE
Proverbs 4:23 exhorts us to, "Guard our hearts with all diligence, for out of them flow the issues of life." The Bible teaches that the 'heart' is the core of our being. It reveals our desires, affections, pursuits, attitudes, emotions and motives. This presentation will emphasize the importance of 'guarding' what we allow into our 'eyes' and 'ears'....the Gateway to the heart.
5. BIBLICAL FILTERS FOR YOUR MEDIA CHOICES
This multi-media presentation is a full day seminar which highlights the 'Biblical Filters' which are found in Joe's book, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices'. It will help followers of Jesus understand the meaning of 'media discernment' based on the timeless teachings of God's Word. It is filled with both Biblical and practical exhortation on how to live a Spirit filled life in the midst of today's media culture.
6. HOW SHOULD A CHRISTIAN USE SOCIAL MEDIA?
Have you ever prayed about how God wants you to use Facebook or Twitter? Have you thought about what He wants you to blog about or what images He wants you to post? Have you ever thought about other people’s responses when you 'like' or 'share' certain posts? Have you thought about how those photos you post might tempt someone else to sin or how promoting certain sites might be a stumbling-block to a weaker Christian? We have a responsibility to show Christ in every single thing we say or do! This presentation will lay out wise Biblical and practical principles to help us glorify God as we engage in Social media.

9.VIDEO GAME ADDICTION
