A New Kind of Evangelist


Yesterday Gavin and I wandered through the exhibit hall at the National Youth Workers Convention, trying to collect as much free junk as possible. While on our junk safari, we came upon a booth promoting iStockphoto.com and got to meet their evangelist, Tiffani Barnes.

I came upon IStockphoto several years ago and I have spent a bunch of money there over the years in obtaining images for church marketing and worship. It was great to put a face with a site that I love so much, and Tiffani, who is a new Nashvillian, was great to talk to.

If you haven’t tried out IStockphoto, I recommend it.

  1. I believe that “evangelist,” in the tech-industry sense, dates back to Guy Kawasaki’s years at Apple in the late 1980s.

  2. You guys are such literalists. I know that “evangelist” goes back for many years. I was making a play on Brian McLaren’s “New Kind of Christian” thinking about meeting this evangelist at a church meeting.
