A bit about our director, Dan Morrell…
Having always been so involved and interested in media, I took the next step forward and began working for URC Yorkshire Synod as a part-time Media for Ministry consultant. I continue to do this today. The role is highly varied, and since 2018 have expanded my knowledge and understanding, as well as increased the range of clients I work with. This now includes iChurch, the URC’s very own out-of-the-box website solution, and several synods across the denomination, as well as Methodist churches, circuits and districts.
Providing a service is one thing. People can learn how to build a website, and build one for others. People could get the hang of social media, and then teach others how to use it. But at Media for Ministry, we’re not just about that. First and foremost, we are Christ-centred. This is not just a job for us, but a calling. We feel called by God to use our skills in digital to further the Kingdom, to support churches in supporting others, and to help them spread the Good News in as many ways, and as effectively, as they can.
We also just ‘get’ churches. We have been brought up in and around them, so we know how they work (and how they don’t!). This contributes to how we work with churches, the ways in which we explain things, and more.
In February 2022, recognising that this role is so vital to the church, I expanded further and formed my company Media for Ministry officially, to spread the M4M ‘Way’ as far as I could.
