Calling creatives! Our environment is a beautiful place with vibrant color and incredible sensory experiences in the foothills of the Himalayas. We live in one of the most economically underprivileged parts of India, where a confluence of different religions, economic backgrounds and class make up this diverse and complex environment. Being that we are located in one of the most unreached places in the world, with a burgeoning population and a curious and growing youth population, workers are needed.
Digital media is a way to expand our reach locally and be connected to the global community. We are looking for someone with a relational heart, a flexible attitude and a desire to serve in exciting, challenging and new situations. We want others to come and experience the love that we have for this place and media is one way to do that. We have a variety of projects in the pipeline ranging from economic development, entertainment and much needed stimulation of the local market. These projects give us the chance to work with locals while building relationships in an honest and authentic manner is a refreshing way of working amongst people in a highly unreached area. New business opportunities assist the current team to spread into new local venues and expand relationships into more areas.
Our team is wanting to spread out and reach more with digital media campaigns. We have a number of projects that need creative minds with digital skills. We have the cultural know-how and ongoing relationships, and are looking for more teammates to help execute new ideas to impact lives. As a part of our local fellowship and evangelism efforts, we preserve and create new indigenous forms of worship. Song writing, recording and distribution of local music is part of the important role we play to show how valuable and irreplaceable this unique culture is to Christ. South Asian music and art is unlike anything you've ever experienced. The long history and deep meaning is beautiful and being forgotten with each passing day.
We have our own local fellowship where we invite others to join and learn about Christ without denying their local culture and family background. The trend otherwise, is to attend a Westernized fellowship. We have creative energy flowing and we need more people to join us to launch new projects.
