MediaLight, Ethiopia

May 11-14, 2017

Are you looking to be a Media Missionary;
Learn how to use your creative skills for missions;
And produce media to win souls for God?

Our limited enrollment workshop runs from May 11-14, 2017, by the beautiful lake of Bobogaya, Debrezeith at SIM retreat center. Plan to join us for empowering time of learning, fellowship, creativity and fun.

The Media Missionaries Training is a RedeeMedia 2017 project in partnership with MediaLight Asia and Great Commission, Ethiopia. It is a 4 days intensive learning community where anyone can ignite the passion within for the great commission; learn basic photography, videography and story telling skills.

Aside from the technical lessons, you will hear from experiences of media missionaries, and be linked with a mentor that can help you produce gospel media throughout the year. We help jumpstart Christian artisits, photographers, videographers and writers who want to use their skills for sharing the gospel. Medium of training will be both Amharic and English.

All photography and videography skill levels are welcome. It is okay if you don’t have a camera or laptop, but its a plus if you have!
