About Me: 

Member of Evergreen Ministries Hudsonville, MI I am the volunteer leader of our Media Ministry Team


I work as an Engineer I have been involved in our Media Team as a volunteer video creator.

Media in the church is really fun to be involved with and I wrestle with how to use it effectively so that it is not mere entertainment.
