Central District Conference 2017: Kingdom Advancement Spotlights

On September 11-13, 2017, the Central District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance held its District Conference in Wadsworth, Ohio, where several videos I helped produce were shown or filmed. During the conference, Todd Sovine from the District Office introduced seven Kingdom Advancement Spotlights, seven ministries from around the district of how our workers are making an impact. Below are a few examples of these spotlights; more can be found at https://vimeo.com/cdcma.


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. Check out the videos below!

Revival Project: Session 1

Jelani Aswad, worship pastor at Grace Church in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, began recording an album in summer 2017, and I was given the opportunity to record video footage of the recording process. To promote the album early on, I edited some of that footage into a one-minute promo video for use on social media. Check out the video below!

Testimonies of God’s Unfailing Love

I had the privilege of collaborating on this project with a family I have known and loved for a couple years serving in Africa. The four children in this family shared testimonies of what they had recently seen the Lord do in local villages in Africa. This video was shot in late June 2017 and finished in early July. It was used as an accompaniment to a sermon called “God’s Unfailing Love”, which the parents of this family preached in Wadsworth, Middleburg Heights, and Vermilion, Ohio. Check out the video below!

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.
