Our Very Different Ministry

Our ministry is different.
We knew it at the moment of saying yes to God.
What he was calling us to do was out of the box, not an ordinary ministry - but we also knew that it was extremely needed.

- Doing videos?
- Sharing stories by documenting what is happening oversees?
- Is that really necessary?
- Could we - should we- an we put those resources somewhere else?

Those were only a few of the many questions that we would hear when sharing our vision with leaders who had little or no relationship with those serving on the mission field.
On the other hand, when we would connect with a new ministry, missionary, or organization, the answer was overwhelmingly the same: “THANK GOD! We need that”.

Our world has become a digital global village, ever-present, ever communicated- we knew we could help the church look beyond meeting local needs or expanding local ministries.

Our world has become a digital global village, ever-present, ever communicated- we knew we could help the church look beyond meeting local needs or expanding local ministries. The body of Christ is, after all, called to be a light on the top of the mountain (Matthew 5:14-16) and to take His love to all the nations (Matthew 24:14). Burdened by that calling to all the nations, our ministry's efforts has two main focuses:

Building a bridge for every believer to be a part of what God is doing in the nations. By sharing stories of those in every corner of the worldwide mission field, producing audiovisual resources, developing media platforms, mobilizing international prayer initiatives, and organizing other special events, we are owning the responsibility to maintain a Kingdom mindset as we faithfully steward, for His glory, the technology which God has put within our grasp.
Equipping and connecting with those serving in the mission field. Every project we take on is driven by the ultimate goal of uniting with those who have a passion for media, and training and leaving them equipped to connect their churches, communities, and believers around the globe with what God is doing in the regions where they serve. One key component of that goal is the building of long term relationships with those serving in the nations.

By cultivating real friendships and maintaining connections with the ones on the front lines, we are building a network of generals around the nations who, even though their battle fields may be remote, know they are not alone or isolated. Another key component of serving and connecting with those missionaries is our constant effort to build partnerships with other ministries and organizations who focus on ministering to, counseling, and serving missionaries. We want to make sure our frontline messengers are healthy and covered.

Does this massive effort offer you a chance to participate?
It does.
On a basic level you can pray.
We are convinced that prayer is the beginning and the birthing place of the impossible becoming a reality. A God dream stew in prayer is a latent reality (James 5:16).

Every missionary we talk to around the world has exactly the same answer when asked about their biggest need: prayer.

Imagine partnering with God to watch over a ministry, a city, or a nation in prayer. It is beyond exciting (Ephesians 6:19). The longer and deeper you pray, your heart will begin to yearn for ways to put those prayers int action.

When that happens, we have several opportunities for you:

First: Serving. 

Our ministry currently serves 17 nations, and a lot of the work required to make that happen comes from volunteers. From general tasks like basic organization and administrative work, to more specialized tasks like managing social media, there are many ways to put your particular gift into action.

Next: Sowing. 

Video productions are expensive, but having a missionary quit their post because of a lack of support is even more costly.  So we pay the price. We go and hear and serve and train them at no cost. Travel, productions, and honorary expenses are covered by the donations of generous hearts who decide to sow into the nations. Might you be one of them?

Today more than ever we are grateful for the ability to serve God with a camera in our hands. We know that every project on every trip is an opportunity for us to capture stories that the Church needs to know - building a bridge to close the distance between our “normal” lives and what God is doing around the globe every day.
Today more than ever you are invited to be a part!
