You can certainly file this one under “Is this for real?” I’ll copy from the site, MyNakedPastor.com, here.
The lead pastor, Troy Gramling, at Flamingo Road Church is getting naked! No … not that kind of naked, a new kind of naked. A nakedness that isn’t embarrassing; a nakedness that God would say is cool.
On 9-9 @ 9PM, Troy will be on a 24-hour webcam for five weeks in four locations: house, car, hotel, and office. Every day, all day, we will see his life in a fishbowl – the good, the bad, the great, the ugly.
That’s right, he’ll be on a webcam, 24 hours a day. Don’t catch anyone at this church saying, “I just don’t feel like I know what goes on in the pastor’s private life.”
To go along with the series, they’ve got billboards, the web site, and even car magnets. If nothing else, they’ve just done something new and crazy in the world of church marketing. Hopefully, in 11 days, you can even watch the video of the pastor commenting on this post.
It’ll be interesting to see what they’ll do with the inevitable buzz this is going to generate. Anyone think this has gone too far? Do you think it’s brilliant? Or has it been done before and I just missed it?
