"Pick something you feel like you were made to do and then do lots of that." - Bob Goff, Love Does
It all started with a desire to go. We wanted to travel, to venture onto the open road and see where it would take us, led only by the Spirit of God and our appetites for adventure. We had developed skills we knew we could use in the workforce: video, photo, and web design work. We had found what makes us come alive, and decided we wanted to do more of that.
After several months of prayer and consideration, God took our dream and shaped it into something beautiful. He showed us a need for his stories to be told; more specifically, a need for quality media to show what he’s doing through missionaries around the world.
After much research and discussion, we decided forming a non-profit was the best way to fulfill that mission. We had no idea what that meant or how to do it, but we decided to step out in faith and go.
how it began
We spent a year dedicating all of our time to forming the nonprofit and in January of 2015, we were hired for our first mission. We spent 6 weeks in Nakuru, Kenya, creating photos, videos, and websites for Rockbridge Ministries. While in Africa, we also got the opportunity to serve an orphanage in Kenya and a ministry in Swaziland.
God was so faithful to provide opportunities for us to realize our passions and share many wonderful stories. He was also gracious to let us see that there might be a better way to bless missionaries than relying on them to fund our organization with service fees.
In December of 2015 we began shooting weddings and decided to work on this new business and bless ministries with the time and proceeds the wedding industry would allow us. In 2016 we were able to fund our own trip to La Ceiba, Honduras and gift our services to the missionaries there. God has taken our initial dream and shaped into something better.
how God shaped it
Now, we are equipped + mobilized to provide our services at no cost other than the travel fees required to get us to the ministry site. We will chat with inquiring ministries to determine if we are a good fit and have the necessary dates available. Ministries that don't have the resources or sponsors to cover our travel costs are welcome to apply for a sponsored trip. We aim to put aside a portion of our wedding profits and accept donations in order to fund these trips as often as we can!
Once we are "hired", we go to ministries and spend time learning the story, planning a photo and video strategy, and then capture and deliver your story!
