About the event
Navigating the Media Landscape as a Christian
There’s many things that a media professional needs to know, but a key is “how do we walk with Jesus in the midst of an industry which often celebrates anti-biblical aspects of life?” How do we navigate the projects, the people, and the pressure and come out the other side thriving in our faith? We’ll explore your questions and seek the Lord for wisdom.
