Media ministry is an essential part of every church. To effectively communicate the gospel, thorough knowledge of media and technology plays an important role.
Over the weekend, we had the opportunity to undergo group workshops led by ministry responsibles, Henry Oliveros, Sheena Magno, Karl Lucriana, and Marjay Rigor. They touched on four departments of the ministry. We spent hours in each department that we were most interested in to orient ourselves with aspects of the production before proceeding with the ministry. As they continued to share their knowledge to the group, one thing was evident to myself—individuals in that room were willing to empty themselves and be used as vessels in the church.
The story of Moses was resonant as we learned throughout the workshop. When God told him, “what’s that in your hand?” Moses replied, “it’s a staff”, and with that staff God used him to perform miracles. Oftentimes, we become overwhelmed with worldly commotions and daily uproars that we would rather have our ears completely closed and be left alone in a quiet corner. But if we choose to listen just enough we’ll hear God asking us the same simple question he asked Moses, “what’s that in your hand?”. A microphone? A pen? Cameras? Computers? Whatever it is, he is waiting for you to allow him to take charge. Truly, he will fill us with his Holy Spirit and he will use us as vessels to further his kingdom.
