I am so so excited to share that starting September 2015 I will be a 2 year-resident with Story Team at The Austin Stone Community Church. 

Story Team is a community of filmmakers, photographers, and writers at The Austin Stone who tell stories of gospel transformation. Our hope is to inspire the church to worship Jesus for who He is and to remember what He has done. 

We produce films, photographic stories, written works, and audio testimonies in the hopes of reminding generations now and generations to come the work that Christ has done in the lives of the Church. View all our stories online at www.austinstone.org/stories.

For the next two years, I will help produce honest documentary films that tell stories of hope and redemption and learn what it means to use my skills in filmmaking to further God's Kingdom. I will also be taking a theology course to be a biblically-trained leader in the community.  

 

Here are some of the films I've had a chance to work on so far: 

However, I cannot do this alone. Being on mission involves the entire body of Christ and I am in need of support. I am prayerfully seeking whom God has called to partner with me in this ministry in a number of ways:

1. Prayer

Prayer support is essential towards ministry. Without the hand of God, the power of the Holy Spirit and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the work that we do will be meaningful and fruitless. I need partners who are committed to praying for myself, my team, and the work of this ministry regularly so that we may rely on the strength of the Lord.

Each month, I send out a e-mail update where I talk about what projects Story Team is working on and my prayer requests. I'd love for you to keep up with what I'm doing. 

2. Financial Support

I am currently seeking about $2000 to anticipate my budget needs for the 2016-2017 year. If you are in a position where you feel called to and are able to support me financially, would you consider giving? This could look like monthly partnerships of $50/month or even a one-time gift of $100 is an investment of eternal value towards furthering the Kingdom of God! 

Praise be to God for this opportunity. I'm excited to see what He has in store for me in this new season and I hope you'll come along on this journey with me!
