Live Video Broadcast Vision

The Lord has birthed in us a vision to launch a monthly LIVE video broadcast to leaders and believers throughout the U.S. and around the world. Every time we commission a mission team to various parts of the world, there is significant cost involved. The monthly live video broadcasts give us the opportunity to reach areas of the world where we have already established relationships on a more regular basis and in a more cost effective manner. Our primary goals with the broadcasts are to offer regular encouragement along with leadership principles to assist in leadership and faith development. We believe this ministry tool is going to be a blessing to many around the world as we bring together the people, gifts, and talents of the church in our local community. We ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in this endeavor.

Fundraising Goal

Globally Impacting

We’ve designed this broadcast to be accessible to anyone, anywhere. From Macedonia to Jamaica, the only thing required to watch is an internet connection.

Community Minded

Our goal is to foster community cooperation at our mission locations through leading by example. A guest community partner will be invited to share at each broadcast event.

Cost Effective

International missions are expensive. For the cost of one international trip, we will be able to be a consistent source of encouragement and support from right here in Albert Lea.

Equipment Overview

Apple Mac Pro


The Mac Pro is a computer that was designed for the sole purpose of creative production. Though it is the most expensive item in our setup, it’s the brain of the entire broadcast and therefore the most critical.

 

Price: $2,500

Panasonic GH4


A Panasonic GH4 will serve as our primary broadcast camera. Recent advances in camera technology will allow us to use this relatively small camera to achieve professional, high definition broadcast footage.

 

 

Price: $900

Olympus E-M5


Similar in form and function to the Panasonic GH4, the Olympus E-M5 Mark II will allow us to capture and switch between our primary and secondary camera angles.

 

 

Price: $700

Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder


If the Mac Pro were the brain of the broadcast and the cameras were the eyes, the Blackmagic Mini Recorder would be the ocular nerve. This device allows us to receive HDMI signals from the cameras in a format that we can use to then broadcast online.

 

Price: $130/each
