“Facebook alone has over 2 billion active users on it. It’s the largest nation in the world. How can we give up this opportunity? Probably the greatest opportunity that we have ever had since the beginning of the church to be able to get the gospel out there.”
— Jon Ralls, media consultant
Adam, a missionary to North Africa, felt God call him to use the internet to share the gospel, despite living in a country with strict internet censorship. He obeyed and discovered the power of media.
Aicha, who served on Adam's team, approached TWR MOTION to develop what became Share the Story, an animated series of Bible stories.
Tom is a fellow filmmaker and leads a course called Foundations of Media to Movements. The course was created in collaboration with Dr. Frank Preston and the team in North Africa to equip disciple makers around the world how to use media and marketing for the gospel.
Jon owns Kavanah Media, a company that helps missionaries and local believers use media and marketing to find people seeking to know the truth. He helps teams create and run ads as well as develop engaging content.
During his time as a missionary to Indonesia, Dr. Frank discovered the missions world may need to re-think how we use media. That led him on a journey to graduate school to study media, Islam and movements. He wanted to understand how media worked in religious movements. His researched has informed much of our current strategy.
Candace leads the TWR MOTION team. She worked closely with Aicha and the North Africa team to develop Share the Story. And taking Tom's course on media strategy helped shape the vision of our ministry.
Chris C is a missionary working with teams throughout Europe alongside Chris V. During their time in Bosnia, they tried everything to connect with spiritually open people, from humanitarian aid to goat farming. They saw the work Adam and Aicha were doing in North Africa and wondered if it would work in their context. It did. And it's changed the way they share the gospel.
