Using the Youth to Create Video for the Church

We use multi-media as a means of keeping youth involved with the program. We have a group of students (middle and high school) who have formed a video production group for our church. With the help of a youth staff member, they brainstorm projects, draft plans, film using professional equipment, and edit with little help from staff members or others. The video below was done almost entirely by youth members. This particular video is part of a series titles "We are FCUMC." FCUMC's pastor staff asked the video production team to help with this series as part of a campaign to define our church body. Our youth went above and beyond, working with church members to set up interview times and film and edit the series in time for its premiere.
