What are we doing?Throughout 2018, Emily and I have dedicated ourselves to being digital missionaries. By creating relevant and compelling video content, our goal is to help train and inspire young people to not only love the Lord with all their heart but to also inspire them to use their gifts and talents to make the world a better place.
Digital MissionariesThe majority of our ministry is through making video content for young people on Youtube. Sometimes the videos are questions and answer videos, sermons, bible studies or mission vlogs. In the short time that we've been doing this, our videos have been seen by nearly two million people!
To help put that impact into perspective, imagine a church service that serves 100,000 to 200,000 young people every single month! Our videos are being used by families, schools, and churches all across the world and the stories that come back are truly inspiring.

• Click Here to hear about how Michael became a Christian, got baptized, and went to Bible College all because of digital missions
Mission TripsIn addition to the hundreds of videos that we've already created and will continue to create moving forward, Emily and I are spending a considerable amount of time traveling around the world serving as missionaries. By partnering with missions and humanitarian organizations, we hope to highlight the many different ways people can use their gifts to impact the world. This year, we are working with organizations like ADRA or A Better World Canada to showcase how God is moving all across the globe. Trips this year include destinations such as Haiti, Kenya, Vietnam, Timor- Leste, Canada, and Ethiopia (some still pending)
How to support?This is where you come in. Our greatest need at this time are people who believe not only in what we have done but who believe in what we are creating. We need partners who believe in the value of digital ministry and who want to see the Church enter the modern era.
Thankfully, a large majority of our travel costs will be covered through our partnerships with the mission organizations- they cover major expenses in exchange for my video content and promotion. However, there are many other expenses that go into running a digital ministry as well as many unseen expenses for mission trips as well.
