Mar 2-10, 2019

ARE YOU A CREATIVE?

Are you passionate about what you do? Have you ever wondered how you could use your desire and abilities to serve God? Then this workshop is for you—specially designed to answer the question, “How do I combine my love for photography (or media software, or design work, or...) with my passion for missions?”

Storytellers Abroad: Missions Multimedia Workshop takes you to the heart of missions by taking you to the hearts of people. People whose lives have been changed by the gospel. People who have a story to tell. Whether your passion is for photography, design, video production, social media, or writing, the key to effectively using those tools lies in your ability to get to the heart of the story.

THAT'S WHAT WE DO.

Working alongside world-class missions storytellers, you will produce your own video story of a life that has been impacted by the ministry of ABWE in Trinidad. The SPRING BREAK edition of Storytellers allows students to work in teams of two to produce your own story. Not only will you be able to bring your own skills and experience to the project, but you will also be challenged to build complementary skill sets in areas that are new to you.

This isn't just another video storytelling workshop. Through it all, the focus is MISSIONS. Although we take the technical training to a high level, our ultimate goal is to:

  • show you how your skills can make a difference for the gospel, and
  • give you steps to move forward in developing a career in missions communications.
