What Inspired The Magnetic North

I am passionate about building bridges that help others learn of and encounter God in a way that leads to a real and life-changing relationship with Him. The world needs a new way of understanding the Gospel Message  - The Magnetic North is this and speaks into the chaos with new clarity meeting this generation where they are through a cinematic fusion of film and poem.

For those with little or no knowledge or experience of Christianity it can often be a struggle to grasp an understanding of the Gospel message. TMN avoids traditional language and complex analogies, shedding light simply and beautifully. TMN uses contemporary language and visuals that will help viewers personally connect with the message of Jesus.

In the Post Production stages we will be collaborating further with a selected group of ministers, youth workers and teachers to create discussion material to accompany the Film. The idea behind this is to help inspire personal reflect and facilitate group discussion.

The Magnetic North could be used in small gatherings in homes, churches or coffee shops, in school RE lessons, conferences, festivals, outreach projects. The videos could also be used to share with friends online to open thought and dialogue around the Christian faith. The Magnetic North truly will be a versatile resource.
