Meet MOTION

We take the gospel seriously.

But not ourselves.

We are video content creators from across the country who relocated to North Carolina because we share a passion to use our God-given gifts to make the gospel known.

On any given day, you might find us behind the camera in the studio or in some remote location in an undisclosed corner of the world. Other times you will find us illustrating the next scene in an animated series on our tablets or editing a video together.

If you don’t catch us at our desks, though, we’re likely playing a friendly (and competitive 😉) game of foosball. #workhardplayhard

The MOTION Method

Making Disciples

Making awesome videos to enhance the local mission of church planters is fun. But the heart of our ministry is to make disciples. After all, that’s the command Jesus gave us in Matthew 28. And one we take seriously.

Keeping Costs Low

Thanks to generous supporters, we’re able to develop high-quality, custom videos at a low cost to church planters. Plus, each member of our team raises his / her own personal support. Our work wouldn’t be possible without this network of financial and prayer partners.

Working Together

The videos wouldn’t go anywhere without the church planters who partner with us. We’re picky about who we partner with because it’s important to us to steward our resources well—the ones you’re investing.

Our partners are leveraging media to connect with people who are already online asking questions to some of life’s biggest questions, like “Who is Jesus?” and “Is the Bible true?” They also have follow-up networks that disciple people in person after they’ve made the initial connection online.

Meet The Team

Candace Mackie

Candace Mackie

Candace Mackie loves playing music (she’s a drummer). Cats are her favorite but, ironically, she doesn’t have one. And in her opinion, Harry Potter is the best story ever.

She serves as the director for this crazy team of creatives, keeping the ministry vision on track. She’s also a video producer and designer.

Andrew Haas

Andrew Haas

Andrew Haas once stopped shaving for more than a year. It was a bet with his wife about who would get tired of the awesome beard first. (Guess who won?)

As a video producer, his greatest contributions to MOTION are storytelling strategies, editing and grey hair.

Elizabeth Harrison

Elizabeth Harrison

Elizabeth Harrison absolutely loves musicals but can’t sing a lick. True crime podcasts are her go-to time killer. (Thankfully, time is all she’s ever killed.)

As a part-time digital content producer, she serves remotely while wrangling two of the world’s most adorable toddlers.

Rachel Mehlhaff

Rachel Mehlhaff

Rachel Mehlhaff once ate durian—king of fruit (read: smelliest)—in exchange for free coffee.

If you ask any other member of the team what their marketing manager does, they’d quickly chime in, “social media.” She also generates ideas and develops marketing and communication strategies… as well as producing the occasional video.

Hannah McGurk

Hannah McGurk

Hannah McGurk loves photography, art and furry creatures. She once called a trained guard dog her pet and currently has two cats.

There’s nothing like four-footed companions to help keep perspective while serving as an assistant video producer.

Kayla Schlipf

Kayla Schlipf

Kayla Schlipf’s childhood dream of becoming a dolphin trainer didn’t work out so she decided to pursue art.

She is our resident digital illustrator, animator in training and artwork painter. (Any animators reading this, please come help!)

Now that you’ve gotten to know us, why don’t you check out what we’re up to?
