Modern missions requires modern methods. MediaLight is an innovative and intensive media training program designed to give students the skills they need to be competent media missionaries. Our program is holistic. While learning professional media production, students are also grounded in the essential teachings of Jesus Christ and coached on building up their own spiritual core and managing their personal lives. You will be amazed at how much you can grow in only eight weeks!
Holistic Approach. Every morning we open with worship and the “God session” a time in God’s word focused on the teachings of Jesus. Then it’s the “You session” where we gain insights on relationships, sex, leadership & money management (to name a few) and explore the meaning behind our own life’s story.
After morning tea we shift the curriculum to media studies and learn under the oversight of seasoned professionals from around the world. MediaLight believes that we learn by doing so students stay busy working on a variety media projects in tribal villages, universities and city streets.
Hand on Training: Modern Missions, Modern Methods. From the first week, students are immersed in media production training at the hands of skilled professional radio and video producers. Scriptwriting, camera, directing, sound crafting, and editing with Adobe Premiere–we cover it all. We also include training in topics such as graphic design, radio programming, blogging and the use of social networks, and photography.
Students return to their home mission field with a renewed zeal, vastly-improved competence in media work and a widely diverse network of co-producers. Now they are more able to effectively deliver the gospel to their generation.
Similar programs cost $5000-$10,000 but we have done our best to limit our costs because we know how tight finances can be. Our cost for tuition, room and all food is US$2500 plus a refundable $300 equipment damage fee. (Don’t break or lose anything and you will get all of this back). English is our language of instruction. All students must demonstrate proficiency in English to enroll.

We train on pro-sumer level Canon DSLR’s. We have enough equipment at the school for students to learn to shoot and edit professional-grade video. However, if you would like to bring the camera you will be working on and also bring your own laptop that would be great. You can learn on the same gear you will be using. If you haven’t bought anything yet please contact us for suggestions. We will give you a list of the same gear we use here. It’s high quality without being ultra-expensive.
The program takes 10 weeks to complete.
