The greatest injustice in the world today is that there are still people who have never heard of the gospel – even once.
Nearly 30% of the world’s population does not have a church that is capable of reaching their own people. Some have never heard of the gospel once. This portion of the world can be divided into over 6,000 unreached people groups — each “people group” could have millions, even tens of millions. These people groups are separated by ethnic, linguistic, and cultural barriers. Not just one message will reach them all. Not just one story translated from a Western viewpoint will be effective.
More than just a set of statistics, we are talking about people, like you and me. Those of us who have been entrusted with the gospel have a responsibility to communicate the gospel. Jesus said (Mark 16:15) “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to all creation” — that’s communication!
Through different forms of media & arts, we are responding to Jesus’ call. Whether for unreached people groups in the most remote locations, or their ethnic/linguistic diaspora in cities, we are focused on creating tools for evangelism, church-planting, and mobilisation. Join us in our mission to communicate the gospel through arts & media.
We are a multi-cultural, multi-lingual ministry with international reach. Our heart is to see the peoples of Thailand, Indo-China, China, as well as the unreached nations of the earth come to know Jesus in a relevant way, in their heart language and context.
Whether it is filmmaking, editing; graphic design, web production; journalism, photography; or fine arts, illustration, and animation; we welcome your creativity and passion to communicate the gospel to unreached people groups!
Our missionaries are currently working on projects integrating various methods and strategies in media & the arts. A series of paintings commissioned for a Muslim context are turned into short video-clip stories. Movies incorporating animation speak to Buddhist people groups. A mobilisation documentary will soon to be completed for one of the largest Hindu unreached people groups in India. One of our evangelistic films produced in China continues to have far-reaching effect on a widespread people group as it adapted for their multiple languages and locations.
People are also needed to join our community who are passionate about making the office run with accounting, maintenance, event coordination, and other management and organizational skills. It’s not just tasking, but a calling as well. Administrative staff can also be involved with productions, and vice-versa.
If you desire to get trained in cross-cultural communication, media & arts, and other aspects of our ministry, consider our School of Frontier Media (SFM) or the Visual Arts for Mission (VAM) course. If you are looking for a short-term volunteer opportunity or internship, please contact us regarding your interests.
