Salt & Light Testimonial

I was contacted by Salt & Light a couple of months ago to partner with them to produce a video that would help explain their new ministry model. Salt & Light had functioned as a food pantry and clothes closet for a number of years, giving away food and clothing to those in need. But they have recently adopted a new way of helping those in need, rather than just giving things away, they partner with people to utilize their gifts and instill value and worth to those they serve.

As I became familiar with their ministry model, I confess that it was enlightening and challenging to think about poverty alleviation efforts in a new way. It was a fun piece to produce and I had a great time getting to know some of the folks that are involved with the ministry of Salt & Light.

To learn more about their model of ministry, check out the book Toxic Charity by Robert Lupton or visit their website at Salt & Light.

Faith In Action

On very few occasions do I find myself stuck somewhere without the ability to hop into my car and head to store or run an errand. I rarely give thought to the fact that I am rather mobile. But in every town there is a segment of the population that isn’t as mobile.

Faith in Action helps to fill that gap for those who do not have their own transportation. Part of Faith in Action’s mission is to provide rides for adults over 60 to and from the doctor’s office, the grocery or other locations they need to go. Transportation is only part of their mission, they also arrange for volunteers to call and to visit those that are homebound.

Around Thanksgiving, Faith in Action contacted me to produce a video that told the stories of both volunteers and care receivers. So we identified 3 volunteers and 3 care receivers and made arrangements to have them tell their stories.

CHCC Testimonial

I’ve had the opportunity to produce several videos for the Community Health Care Clinic. I am always amazed by their work and how much of an impact that they have on our community. Even with the recent reforms in health care, there are thousands of people in and around Bloomington-Normal that cannot afford health insurance. That’s were the CHCC comes in to help serve those that otherwise would not have an option for health care. Most recently, we produced a patient story that CHCC could show to their supporters.
