The Center for Media Ministry partnered with Dr. Carl Cosaert, WWU professor of Theology, to produce a six-episode TV series on the sites in Carl's famous Holy Land tour, and the gospel of Mark.

Grad student Rachel Scribner, from the Cinema, Religion, & Worldview program directed the project, and Cosaert created and hosted the series.

What we do:

Our center strives to be the Seventh-day Adventist hub where students, educators, leaders, and organizations find insight and training related to the effective use of cinema, web and interactive media, and all kinds of communication for Christ-centered ministry.

What Supporters say:

“In most peoples’ minds, there is an apparent dichotomy between religion and movies, pastors and filmmakers. But I believe that this dichotomy does not exist. In a movie, the story, the drama, the music all blend together to create the most powerful culture-changing weapon of our time.”
—Joel Sutherland
