Are you a photographer? Have you ever used photography to share your Christian world-and-life view?
The two naturally go together. When we take pictures our eyes and our hearts work together. Like a lens filter our hearts reflect what we see, what we value and how we view people and God’s creation. If you are a photographer willing to let God use your skills and your knowledge, come to Ukraine to teach in one of our Photo Schools. As you help students with their technical skills, you’ll have opportunity to teach how your faith informs and frames your photos. You can come for almost any length of time—for a week or a year! Depending on your length of stay, you may travel to several cities—certainly Kiev and Cherkassy, to name only two.
You will be provided an interpreter for teaching. Another opportunity for relationship building for the kingdom is to join one of our Photo tours such as to the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine or as far-flung as to India, Nepal, Vietnam, Georgia or Peru. These tours include photography lessons and discussions touching on life issues from a biblical perspective. You will be asked to teach 2-3 photography classes and are invited to participate in the discussions. Perhaps the greatest value stems not from the intensive learning, but from the intensive relationship building. Even if you are not a professional photographer, you can join a Photo Tour if you want to learn. You will be a student acquiring new skills, but also a believer who will be building relationships and sharing his life with others.
