I M M, Europe
For the past five years, Dan has served as a professor of Digital Media at Valley Forge Christian College. There, he was able to teach in a fledgling program that became the largest major in the college. As the program grew, Dan designed and built new broadcast studios, launched new classes, and the college allowed us to create a Digital Media Center for students to collaborate and learn. Alicia has most recently served as VFCC’s Director of Alumni and Parent Relations, after serving four years as a Residence Director.
God began to give us a dream for missions a few years ago, but at that point, it was just a “nudge.” We explored a few options, but nothing felt right. Alicia has always felt a strong call to western Europe, but we didn’t know how that would come into play. In May 2013, we were involved in a media missions experience called Go Borderless, where Dan trained college students from the US and Europe, and led a team to Melilla, North Africa. As we prepared for Go Borderless, we learned of a position at International Media Ministries (IMM), and the idea that we could accelerate the Gospel through media at an organization that has a potential audience of millions of people in a variety of cultural contexts really excited us. A very long story and many confirmations from God later, we are preparing to move to Madrid, Spain to lead production and training at IMM.
International Media Ministries is constantly adapting, changing, and growing with the media world. We want to see Jesus on every screen, especially those parts of the world closed to traditional evangelism. Currently, video content including short films, dramatized Bible stories, and children’s shows from IMM have been translated into more than 70 languages.
