WE ARE LOOKING FOR A BASE OUTSIDE, BUT NEAR THE TWIN CITIES

Where we can host interns.

Build a live/work community with production capacity.

Create systems of sustainability that can weather societal disruptions.

If not now, then when?

Current technologies give us unprecedented tools for media creation and distribution. This generation has been uniquely prepared to communicate through media.  And we have experienced masters in our midst ready to equip and mentor them.

We envision

  • A media production training base east of the Twin Cities creating a constant flow of fresh content.

  • A dedicated fund to help underwrite production costs and accelerate new projects.

  • A worldwide network of creators making media for the nations.

  • An international brain trust working to understand the foundational stories of each culture and create media that speaks to the heart.

  • A dedication to creating and improving until we are among the best.

  • Hearts and gifts surrendered to Jesus, dependent on the Holy Spirit, loved by and loving the Father.
