Church Appropriate Dance Moves was an afterthought. An accident, really. It was part of another sketch I wrote called Mornings with Jesus: Urgency. During the editing, producer Jon Melton and I began talking: what if we did five minutes straight of dancing stories from the Bible? We started making up dances on the spot and everyone around us was laughing and really getting into it. A week later we filmed the dancing, and the rest is history. We landed somewhere around 6 million views across the internet–through Facebook, Vimeo, Youtube, and SermonSpice. We were featured in MLive, Woman’s Day, and GodTube. Even still, it continues to be a top selling video for churches across the country.
