As we understand it, many years ago the founder of our organization shared his vision to see field based communications teams gathering stories from around the globe. Staff at the US Mobilization Base stewarded this vision for over a decade, praying the Lord would bring workers together to form this specific team.
In 2013 the first Commnet team launched in Southeast Asia, and we stepped into something that had been bathed in prayer. We share the same passions as our founder – first and foremost a passion for God – and our passion for stories brings us together as a team.
Each time we gather with fellow workers from across our region, we are moved by their stories. Some are shared with words, others simply show in their faces.
There are stories of every kind. Stories of redemption, pain, hope and seemingly always joy. They are shared with deep passion, occasional desperation, sometimes tears and often with generous smiles.
Everyone has a story.
With our sacred trust to “Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples” (Psalm 96:3) we sense that God is robbed of His glory when these stories from the harvest field go unheard.
We also believe that the Bride of Christ is ready to respond through praying, giving and raising up workers, as the narrative of G0d’s work goes out.
Commnet, is uniquely positioned to gather, compile and share these stories. If you’re a Pioneers worker in Southeast Asia, we’d love to help you share yours.
Partnering with Commnet is not for everyone.
If you’re looking for a Hollywood outfit to breeze in for a week with a truck-load of gear and a crew of 8 to handle tech needs for your conference, or a pay for service arrangement, you’ll need to keep looking. That’s not what we’re about.
Rather, we’re a compact team of cross-disciplined media professionals, committed to a small footprint, focused on gathering your story on location and sharing it for the glory of God.
Since we’re small and based in Southeast Asia, we’re highly mobile and can be in your neck of the woods, jungle, city, or village with relative ease. Where feasible, this provides the opportunity to compile and share multiple chapters of your story as it unfolds over time.
Being workers ourselves we understand the time, energy and sacrifice you’ve made in developing your ministry, relationships and identity. We hold your security and the security of those among whom you minister in highest regard. In creative access environments, we’ll take appropriate action to ensure our presence with you or in your vicinity makes sense.
We aim to give, not to take.
It’s your story, not ours. We’d like to help gather up the pieces, put it all together and share it for the glory of God. We’ll make the processed media that we create available for you to download right here on our secure website.
We’ll also provide a heads-up of the completed project to our global network of mobilizers to ensure that international audiences have the opportunity to experience it. In this way others can pray specifically, give sacrificially, and go themselves as the Lord uses His stories to call workers to the harvest fields.
