Well the Cd Release Concert was AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported, who prayed, and who gave to make this night happen. Special thanks to Evergreen Baptist, Patsor Ken Fong and Justis Kao who hosted the evening. Also to my Newsong NOC family for coming out in strong numbers, and also to the Newsong LA and Irvine people for coming out…your presence was such a blessing to Irene and I. It was a jammed pack night with lots of energy, excitement, music, testimonies, many coming forward for prayer, and most impostantly the Spirit of God for healing, inspiring, and launching us all into a future with purpose. For those of you who attended remember that God has created you with purpose in mind and that everything you have need of in order to walk in that purpose has already been placed within you. It just needs to be awakened.

Also keep the Third culture Worship movement going by helping us spread the word and getting this worship project out. The CD is available right here at www.vaughnthompsonjr.com. We also have T-shirts from the concert night available so you can rep third culture wherever you go! Thank you all again for all the love and support. Love you all!

Third Culture Worship – LOGO Design Contest!

This is for all you graphic designers out there. We are having a contest for any graphic designer that would like to design the logo for the upcoming release of the Third Culture Worship CD. Your design, if selected, will be on the cover of a nationally released Worship project and on our website design (www.thirdcultureworship.com) with all credit to you and your contact information, if you wish, to promote your services. We will select a winner on Oct. 31th 2009!!!

EVERYONE who submits a *legitimate* design will receive 1 free Third Culture T-shirt and 1 free Third Culture Worship CD BEFORE the actual release in January!!!
*it must be obvious that the design is original, well thought out and not simply copied or thrown together at the last minute*

The WINNER gets:

  • $100.00 CASH PRIZE!
  • Two (2) Third culture Worship t-shirts (black or white in any size; men’s or women’s)
  • Five (5) Third Culture Worship CD’s with your design on it to keep, sell, or give!
  • Your name and info on every CD and our website to help further promote your services!

The Design:

We are looking for creative ways to express the concept of Third Culture for our first Third culture Worship CD cover. We would also like the motif and vibe of your design help shape our website as well.

Some descriptives of what “Third Culture” is to us:

  • The Culture that evolves from Intersecting Cultures
  • Caught between Worlds
  • In but not of the world
  • foreigners in a strange land
  • fluidity, adaptability
  • inclusiveness vs exclusiveness
  • bridges gaps
  • identity
  • essentially it is a world view; a lens
  • The ability to find commonalities in order to overcome differences
  • The ability to adapt to other cultures and invite others to into yours.
  • The ability to know who you are no matter where you are.
  • Jesus himself is the ultimate picture of Third culture: He became human and immersed himself into our world and engaged the culture of the world in order to invite all into His culture of kingdom. see text Ephesians 2:11-22

Things we are looking for in the design:

  • we want it to look urban, contemporary, artistic
  • we are looking for a “gritty” street vibe (grainy textures)
  • black and whites, sepia tones are always cool (but doesn’t have to be)
  • classic touch, vintage feel
  • we are also looking for some design or image that could also serve as a logo
  • A cool way of writing “third culture worship” for a logo
  • A way to brand third culture worship

Please submit your ideas, and designs to me any of the following ways anytime BEFORE October 31st:

Thank you for your time and your talents!
