The purpose of the Multimedia Ministry here at Moraine City First Church of God is to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our visually-driven, ever changing world through the use of technology and media, and to equip other ministries of the church to use digital and electronic media as a worship and outreach tool. This ministry not only provides the technical support required for our worship services, but also records various events, teachings and sermons, which are made available on DVD and for viewing on Facebook, YouTube and here on the website.
The ministry’s mission is to glorify God by ensuring that His Word and our praise to Him is seen and heard clearly and without distraction within our church and throughout the world as it’s broadcasted or distributed on media with the highest video, audio, and production quality available.

There are many opportunities for you to serve in the Media ministry. We are here to help you learn and have fun in the process!
We are looking for those who desire to continue to learn, who are team players, and most of all are committed to do their ministry. It does not mean you have to start out knowing anything about A/V, just have a learning attitude and a willingness to be lead.

Video (other than taping weekly services) - You can join the video team as a camera operator and/or editor for special productions. We are constantly recording events and testimonies or creating short videos for web site use or promotion of ministries.
