Concluding an entire month of reflecting on the many blessings and milestones of our FUMCFW Media Ministry, Sr. Pastor Dr. Tim Bruster and others express appreciation and thanks for this ever-evolving commitment to sharing our church’s messages, ministry, and community — beyond the walls.
The bond created by a 40-year commitment to Media Ministry is one of family, friendship and mutual support. Celebrating the vision of its founders as it welcomes new faces and ideas, this ministry continues to thrive on its commitment to one another, to excellence, and to our church.
With 40 years of service from many of the same Media Ministry volunteers, many of them husband and wife teams, it stands to reason that this legacy of service and commitment carries through to the children of these volunteers. Listen to the earliest memories and reflections of a member of our newest generation of FUMCFW Media Ministry volunteers.
In addition to reaching thousands upon thousands of people each year via live stream of worship services to computers and mobile devices worldwide, FUMCFW Media Ministry celebrates its unique mission of providing access to viewers in special circumstances who otherwise would not be able to share worship — or other special experiences such as weddings, funerals — and even baptisms from half a world away.
Hear how the dream became a reality that continues to thrive under the consistent leadership, vision, and hands on support of an entirely volunteer-driven team and ministry that now spans generations!
