For the past week a team of creatives has been helping churches in the Albany, N.Y., area. It’s called Creative Missions and it’s pretty awesome. We talked about the trip a while back and are proud to say our nonprofit parent, the Center for Church Communication, helped make it happen.
This week it’s been amazing to watch the tweets come in (check out the #CreativeMissions hashtag to follow along). We planned on doing a follow-up post next week with some of the folks who went on the trip, but we couldn’t wait until then to share all the good stories (and yes, we still plan on doing that).
To sum up what Creative Missions is all about, it’s a missions trip where church creatives can put their actual skills to use helping other churches communicate. This post from Jon Rogers nails it:
No, we didn’t build a church building or construct an orphanage. No we didn’t run a VBS or witness on the streets. We have created sustainable solutions for churches to effectively communicate an ultimate message of God’s never-ending love for each community these churches are involved in.
We also have a few other blog posts giving us some updates on the week. You can also get a glimpse of some of the work that’s been accomplished. And there are plenty of pics of the team in action. Big thanks go to Cleve Persinger and the entire team for making this happen.
And we can definitely end with this thought from team leader Danielle Hartland:
Tried to write a post about #creativemissions but just kept crying. This has been incredible. I would give my life to this.
