Can We Impact the Masses through Media?
The organizers believe that we can impact our culture through mass media and entertainment. Director Faytene Grasseschi states “this is a cry for God to move with his love and power in entertainment media in a way that will impact the masses”. Grasseschi believes that the key is prayer, and by praying we can release God’s blessing for Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
But I do have a question. What happens the next day and the day after that? Is there a plan, an ongoing effort? I hope nobody takes this the wrong way. But one thing that the body of Christ does very well is supporting major events. But if everyone goes home and settles back into their normal routine, will anything really have been accomplished?
I believe God has been at work in Hollywood and the entertainment industry since the very beginning. You can find his love and power present if you know where to look. All he asks of us is to join him in his work.
Media Missionary School is committed to the long haul. We believe prayer must be continuous and daily. We need millions of Christians praying on an ongoing basis for both Christians who work in media and entertainment and for nonbelievers so they will come to know Christ as their Savior. The way this work will be accomplished is through raising up, equipping, training, and supporting future media professionals who will think, work and function as missionaries.
Let’s join in and support the work of The Cry Hollywood. But, at the same time, let’s not forget what must happen tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that. It will be a long-term commitment that will bring about real change in our culture.
