Introducing TruthVine

This Monday morning, the metaphorical starting gun will fire, and Rob and I will be off on our one-week startup challenge. We aim to have a minimum viable product up and hosting at least one customer in 5 days. So what is it we’re building?

Allow me to introduce TruthVine – “the easiest way to share sermons online”. The theory I’m testing with the launch of this product is that there are many churches who would love to put their sermons online, but simply don’t know where to start. There are already sites like or, but my research suggests that there is room in the market for a service which makes the whole process so simple that no IT know-how is required.

With TruthVine I aim to streamline the whole process of recording, publishing, and engaging with sermons. Engagement is a major part of my vision for the future. As a wise man once said, “a sermon is not over until it is lived”, and God-willing, I want to build TruthVine into a tool which helps Christians keep the preached Word of God at the front of their minds so they can live it.

That’s the lofty goal. But every journey begins with a first step, and on Monday we take ours.

Check out the landing page, sign up for the newsletter, and follow along with our hackathon next week.

From your reading it's clear that you drank the lean startup kool aid and probably read books like "The Lean Startup" or "Startup Owner's Manual". This is a good thing and lets me hope you make the leap. Good luck!

Thanks Daniel!

I certainly imbibed deeply of The Lean Startup. Haven't read Startup Owners Manual - I'll have to keep an eye out for that one.
