  11. 11. Reasons to Change the Paradigm 1) The enormous imbalance between the number of local believers/ missionaries (millions) and missional media producers (hundreds)
  12. 12. Reasons to Change the Paradigm 2) The huge percentage of local believers and missionaries that are equipped and able to shoot video via their mobile phones, etc.
  13. 13. Reasons to Change the Paradigm 3) The availability of on-phone online and free/low-cost video editing programs
  14. 14. Reasons to Change the Paradigm 4) The minimal expertise and expense required to produce media that is “good enough” for a mobile screen (the most widespread screen found among the unreached)
  15. 15. Reasons to Change the Paradigm 5) Large-scale distribution channels are available to local believers and missionaries through video sharing sites and the Bluetooth phone-to- phone transmission channel
  16. 16. The Challenge Can Christian media ministries make the switch from solely being “media producers” to “media enablers” for the Church?

  18. 18. What is Still Needed? Among other things: • Online open source imagery (for instance, background visuals for chronological Bible stories) • A single-stop Christian website, program and/or phone app enabling users to 1) Upload and/or find imagery/footage/ audio, 2) edit it and 3) both download the final product for offline distribution as well as upload it for online distribution
