Media Missionary School Forms New Group

Media Missionary School, a division of Flannelgraph Ministries, has announced plans for the formation of an “ownership group”. The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. to be held at Storytellers Media Center located at 1530 Tremont Street, Cincinnati, OH. The group is open to anyone who believes in the vision and the work of Media Missionary School. The main purpose of the ownership group is to help launch and support the opening of Storytellers Media Center. Members will volunteer their time and be an advocate for the new center.

We asked Harold Hay, President of Media Missionary School why this ownership group is important to the overall success of the new media training center. “Obviously, I can’t open this center by myself. It’s going to take a lot of people working together for the common goal of fulfilling the Great Commission and being a witness for Christ. That’s why we are so passionate about raising up, developing, and training tomorrow’s future media professionals to think, work and function as missionaries. The ownership group or the OG is going to be necessary to build a foundation from which we can launch this ambitious vision. We want to have an influence on mainstream media. The reality is if your message isn’t represented in Hollywood or the broader media and entertainment industry, it might as well not exist. We want to teach our students how to communicate a message that points people to the path of grace which leads to forgiveness and redemption. “

Asked if the members of the OG will be responsible for fundraising and financial support, Hay went on to say, “Although financial support is a necessity in running a ministry, we’re looking for people who are committed to the cause and believe in the mission first and foremost. There are many ways that you can give other than money. In fact, giving yourself and your time is often more important than just writing a check. We are looking for people who are committed followers of Christ and are willing to invest their heart into something they can believe in.”

Hay went on to say that members will be required to attend monthly meetings and special events. They will also be required to volunteer their services at least twice a month. There will be a number of roles the OG will be able to plug into including accounting, bookkeeping, teaching, maintenance, cleaning, administration, web development, advertising, promotions, marketing, mentoring, etc.
