Hello Friends and Family! I am so excited that this summer I've been given the opportunity to learn and grow under the amazing teaching of 21 project leadership.
21Project is a collaborative leadership training school that equips trainees to make next steps as influencers, musicians, creatives, and messengers. Every track offers different training and opportunities under the unified goal of treating every aspect of our lives as the mission field.
21 project will train me in media but it will also educate me on how to reach an impact people, how to share the gospel effectively, how to walk with God with unflinching devotion, and how to be a catalyst for movements of God at my university and beyond. In fact, being a catalyst for spiritual change and growth is something they've already deeply inspired me towards so I am so excited to see where they can take me over these 2 weeks.
Under the media focus, I'll be trained in how to use media and visual communication skills to inspire grassroots movements. I'll be blessed to work with innovators and activists who are passionate about sharing the timeless message of Jesus in ways that this generation will receive. Through design, photography, film, cutting edge technology and social media I'll be pushed to realize the opportunity we have to influence the world.
I am certain that worship will change the world and I'm even more sure that its already doing it. The word says "whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." and I want to approach filmmaking as an act of worship!
It has been a dream that God put on my heart to impact the film and television industry by bringing the love of God onto the screen and into the hearts of many. I think that the shows we see cropping up with excellent success are telling us something clear: the world wants something real. Watching TV is something so simple but it's a time when we relax and truly allow ourselves to be spoken to. We gather with friends, we become attached to characters, we let ourselves be inspired. I am certain that growing in my ability to tell a story while on the media track will help me to better work towards the goal of Christ driven narratives.
This money would help me get to 21 project this summer by contributing to my housing and food costs, as well as the cost of being trained under the amazing leaders they bring out. Thank you for any way at all that you can help and God bless you!
