As we look forward to the Creative Missions 2013 trip to Alaska coming May 17-24 (apply or give!), I got together with some participants from previous years to ask them about what makes the trip special. This time I sat down with Jon Rogers.
Why did you decide to go on your last Creative Missions trip? What prompted you to go?
Jon Rogers: Loved being able to help churches push the ball forward on projects they had been waiting on for years at the first one and couldn’t wait to do the same at the second. It’s a great feeling. Also the fact that I had made some deep friendships at the first trip. My heart has always been for the local church and any time I can use my gifts to help them out is a win for me.
What did you do while you were there?
Jon: I did logo and brochure design, signage design, website installation and setup as well as some web graphics.
What has that experience meant to you?
Jon: The experience has been very fulfilling in creating lasting friendships with team members as well as pastors around the country that I now call friends.
Has that experience changed what you do or how you do it at your day job?
Jon: I think it rounds out what I do on a daily basis. It fulfills me in ways many projects and jobs have not.
We’re thrilled to partner with Creative Missions (our nonprofit parent, the Center for Church Communication, handles the Creative Missions finances).
