To Teach, Establish Godly New Media Leaders
Our mission is to equip and raise the next generation of Christian media professionals who will use their talents to reach people with Truth.
As Christians in the media industry, we know full well the power of the media to influence people, shape worldviews, and ultimately bring about change in society. While the world gets constantly bombarded by images and messages that distort God’s truth and shift people further from Him, our desire is to see media used to bring about positive changes and to draw people closer to the one who saves – Jesus Christ.
