VISION


This school focuses on video advocacy. We aim to equip people to compose documentaries and other forms of media to advocate effectively and to enable different groups of people to facilitate lasting change in society, bringing awareness for injustice, and completing the Great Commission.

OUR FOCUS


The leaders of this school worked in partnership with “A Voice for the Voiceless” ministry where they understood from God the vision for more advocacy in the area of media, more specifically in video communication. 

Throughout the last few years, the leaders Elinis and Jonathan Goodson have got trained and traveled to a few locations searching for an effective way to work and put together a curriculum to equip people in the area of video communication to advocate for justice.

Together they started a documentary series, “The Silent Side of the Coin”, which intends to show the different sides of injustice issues in the world, addressing the problems and their causes. 

For those that apply for this school, both students and staff, opportunities will be opened to work in collaboration with this vision. The goal is not to find the most media skilled people but those with a heart and passion willing to work hard to advocate for justice. If you have the heart we can teach you the skills.
