Church Planting Training in Basel

For ten days, nearly 60 missionaries from the U.S. and across Europe attended an engaging church planting training called T4T (Training for Trainers) in Basel, Switzerland. This training presented many exciting and effective examples of how God is building His Church around the world through biblical church planting efforts.

GemStone Media was privileged to run the audio/video for the event through the leadership of video producers, Krister and Walt. They also recorded the entire training event (about 50 hours!) doing a live mix between three cameras and PowerPoint presentations.

This training footage will eventually be edited down and made available online in shorter segments so that missionaries around the world can learn these effective church planting methods.

A short visit

Leslie has a passion for art and Europe, and has just finished her junior year of college pursuing a BA degree in Media Arts. As she has been thinking about her future, she was thrilled to discover "a mission driven organization impassioned for Europe, but also one that utilizes media to serve."

While Leslie was in Europe recently, she visited GemStone Media to explore the possibilities of serving with us here. It was a pleasure to meet her, show her the area, and learn more about her. We are praying for Leslie's future and look forward to seeing how God will lead her!
