When I agreed to allow a group of our men to develop a media ministry at our church I didn’t really appreciate how it would help or benefit our church. Now I can’t understand why we didn’t utilize media from the very beginning.
I cannot place enough emphasis on the value of what quality media can do for your church. In this post, I want to try to explain some things for those who maybe have not taken that first step and would like to first understand reasons to value media.
Not long ago, I was being interviewed by a young lady, when she asked what I do for a living. I began expressing my passion for media. I explained the exponential effects of a recording that can be seen for years to come and reach people long after you and I are gone. After talking about that for a few minutes, she then asked a question that I totally did not see coming. She asked, “Media is obviously your passion, but what is your ‘Plan B’?”
At Christian Media International we firmly believe it is possible to achieve the command of Mark 16:15 when Christ tells us in Mark 16:15, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Every ministry is different! Different budgets. Different needs. Different workflows. But one thing is universally welcome. A GOOD DEAL! The problem many ministries run into is that at the moment they decide it’s time to “pull the trigger” on new media equipment, the “techy guy” spends the next few days catching up on all the new gadgets in the market that he hasn’t been able to keep up with.
