The Visual Story Network hosted gatherings in Denver and Colorado Springs on May 11 and May 12, 2016 respectively.
Our goals were to …
- celebrate the work of God in the world through visual media
- network locally with others who care about using innovative media for the kingdom
- showcase kingdom projects (including yours!) with local and global reach
- learn more about the Visual Story Network vision and how to be a part of the movement.
A special thanks to our hosts, Solid Grounds (South Fellowship Church - Denver) and Cheryl Meredith (Colorado Springs).
