Visual Story Network
The Visual Story Network is a coalition of missional and creative Christians working together to fuel a global movement of visual story for the kingdom of God. We live in a transitional time in the history of the Church. We believe a great opportunity exists to move beyond preach and print to portray. When God’s people consistently create and share visual stories in culturally compelling ways with every person on the earth so people can experience life-change through Jesus a movement will have occurred. We define visual story as combining narrative and visual media in communicating the message of Christ and His kingdom.
Through this online community we seek to…
1. Advocate for the need for visual story
2. Provide opportunities to connect and collaborate
3. Promote best practices and products
4. Equip God’s people to create and use visual story
Alliance Defending Freedom
Alliance Defending Freedom is a servant ministry building an alliance to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.
Recognizing the need for a strong, coordinated legal defense against growing attacks on religious freedom, more than 30 prominent Christian leaders launched Alliance Defending Freedom in 1994. Over the past 18 years, this unique legal ministry has brought together thousands of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations that work tirelessly to advocate for the right of people to freely live out their faith in America and around the world.
Building an Alliance for Victory
Unlike any other legal organization, Alliance Defending Freedom employs a unique combination of strategy, training, funding, and litigation to empower its allies and achieve victory for religious freedom.

* SoCal Advisory Board Member
Purity and hope are at the center of everything we do. The Biblical call to purity in thought, word, and deed, particularly in the area of sexuality, is perhaps more important than ever in our society, where daily men, women, and children are assaulted by images, ideas, and expectations that lead to bondage and relational breakdown. But purity is more than simply an avoidance of impurity, more than abstinence from harmful sexual acts and attitudes. It is a dynamic lifestyle that seeks to live out our calling to justice and righteousness. This is reflected in the acronym PURE, representing Pray/Understand/ Resolve/Engage, the four active characteristics of a pure life that will positively impact the world around us.
