You’re a photographer. You have the ability to capture beauty and help others see the world through new eyes. Had you ever thought that your camera could also be a tool to share the gift of eternal life with young teens? If you are a photographer with a heart for loving people and a desire to see others get saved and grow in their faith, the Missions Photography Team would be the perfect culmination of your skills, abilities, and passion for people.
Four photographers will travel with a mission team this summer. While the rest of the team is running the children’s programs, the photographers will be running simultaneous photography lessons for the older group. Many of these teens and pre-teens need something extra to draw them in and capture their interest. Photography can bridge that gap. However, they need more than that. They need investment in their lives from young adults who will take the time to build friendships and disciple them. Photography provides the platform to accomplish this. An even greater need, though, is for the truth. They need the truth of the Gospel and they need to know how to live God’s truth in their lives in practical ways. They need a relationship with the Savior. Photography is a tool to get this message across. The photography lessons will communicate, in very visual ways, the same truths of Scripture that the younger kids are learning through games, crafts, and stories. Your personal stories, and the friendships you build will give those truths life and meaning.
During times when it’s not possible to teach photography (evening events in particular) the photographers will join the rest of the team in other ministry activities – teaching kids, sharing testimonies with teens, etc.
