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.

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.

Since the inception of CMI over two years ago, God continues to give us more opportunities than we can fulfill. We began this ministry by broadcasting into India, and now over 75+ countries around the world hear the message of the gospel through CMI.
It has been a very busy fall season at CMI. God is blessing in amazing ways. With our move to Georgia and the donation of a building that needs renovation we have been working at home while expecting that God is preparing us for a HUGE 2016! We cant wait to announce some big things that will be happening next year, but you will have to wait until 2016 to hear about them.
