Media Teams Being Equipped for Greater Service

April 9, 2019 - The overall objective of the Communication Department of the South Bahamas Conference is to engage the public through media. Mrs. Lavern Sturrup, Communication Director for our conference said, “In order to make this tool an effective way of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world, training must take place”. She said that Jesus himself believed in equipping his disciples for greater ministry.

A workshop was held on March 24, 2019 on the Easy Worship Software which is used to efficiently disseminate information within our churches by using slide presentations or videos on large screens (Songs and Scripture Texts, etc). Representatives from churches within the conference were given first hand access to information on the installation, operation and troubleshooting associated with the program.

Mr. John Garcia, Information Technology and Media Coordinator for the Atlantic Caribbean Union of Seventh-day Adventists was the guest presenter. The teams participated in the practical session and were given the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight on best practices for the smooth operation in the worship service. 

At the end of the three-and-a-half-hour session the teams were certified and equipped in this area of ministry. Media teams can look forward to training in the near future in the areas of Photography and on the Digital Mixer.
