McDowell County, WV: Parts 1 & 2

In the spring and summer of 2017, I shot, edited, and mixed two videos telling the story of workers for the Central District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in McDowell County, the southernmost county of West Virginia. Although a condensed version of this video content was premiered at the district reception at Alliance Council 2017, the full-length videos were shown at Central District Conference on September 12, 2017, in Wadsworth, Ohio.

C&MA Central District Children’s Council Promo

In the spring and summer of 2017, I approached the Christian and Missionary Alliance Central District Office about producing a promo highlighting the district’s available resources for our children’s ministry workers. District children’s ministry coordinator Beth Falkenberg and I collaborated on the final video which was finished in late June 2017. The project explained the purpose of the District Children’s Council and how that team supports our children’s workers. The video was distributed throughout the district  in summer 2017.

C&MA Central District: Missional Living Series

In the winter and spring of 2017, as coordinator of video production for the Central District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, I was prompted by the Lord to create short videos highlighting district ministry to refugees and immigrants. This led me to producing two short video stories of ministry in Cleveland and Akron, Ohio, ministering to families in our community who have come from all over the world. These stories align with the district’s vision of “Missional Living” in our communities. I shot, edited, mixed, and provided music for both these videos, which were shot in March and April 2017 and made public in June 2017. Please check them out below!

Alliance Council 2017: Friday Pre-Service Kids Video

I volunteered with the Alliance Video Team from May 29 to June 4, 2017, at the C&MA General Council in Columbus, Ohio. I shot and organized miscellaneous footage throughout the week, but one project I did have leadership on was the pre-service for Friday night of Council. In this video, Melissa MacDonald, National Children’s Disciplemaking Specialist for the Alliance, showcases the children’s ministry happening during Council and even interviews three kids there. I shot and edited this video alongside another volunteer, Phoebe Frear. The video premiered on June 2, 2017, before the main session of Council that evening. Check out the video below!

The Massey’s in Envision Cleveland

Chris and Juliette Massey have been friends of mine for years from our Beulah Beach connection, and it was a privilege to produce a fundraising video for them as they began their service with Envision Cleveland. This video was produced in spring 2017 and shared online to help the Massey family raise support. Check out the video below!
