Phase 2 LEAD Internship

If you are reading this, it is because of your significance to my walk and faith. As many of you know, I have for the past few months been furthering my training as an Editor and Videographer at Bethany Global University LEAD Media Program in Minnesota.

The LEAD Media Program is designed to train and equip leaders within the church with a focus on Media.  During the first phase of the program, the focus was on developing our relationship with the Lord and our ministry calling.

In the upcoming semester, the LEAD program will shift to a primary focus on media and video production training to hone my craft and to prepare me for Phase 3.  The 3rd Phase will be focused on completing my Media Capstone Project: a documentary of a short-term mission trip (with Bethany Teams) that will highlight what God is doing on the mission field. 

Over the past few months, I have increasingly felt the call to tell the stories of Missionaries around the world. The total cost for this upcoming semester is $4,500. Tuition cost this semester is divided into 2 parts.   

Room and Board - $2,000

Camera Equipment  Liabilities - $2500

I am requesting a total of $4,855 to help cover GoFundMe fees.  

Finacial Update:  First off Thank you to all my friends and family that have given from the heart.   As of today, with your help, I have raised  $3,925 with $930 away from reaching my goal.  Wow, Thank you.  

Important deadlines revisited: At the start of this campaign it was my goal to reach 4,500 by Jan, 2nd.
After meeting with the School financial office advisors I was able to apply for a monthly payment plan of $191.55 over four months.  Please pray and consider helping me meet this goal.  

It is my desire at the completion of this program to produce documentaries of the lives of Missionaries and the people to whom they are called.  

Please pray for this upcoming semester and prayerfully consider supporting me financially as I seek to pursue our Father's will. Your friendship has helped shape me into who I am today. Thank you and may you be blessed in all you do!
Love Mark.
