2018 Ministry Recap
After finalizing all the details of our organization and forming our board of directors Carrie stepped down from her position as director of the drop-in center. Though we continue to partner with Central Faith Church to provide meals and activities for the after school program, time was freed up to begin planning our learning programs and fundraising strategies. THANK YOU to the Pelsangs and everyone that helped us in September to raise over $8000 through the first Ripple Ministries Golf Classic. Since September we have finished our first course syllabus. The Teen Storytellers Project is scheduled to begin January 11th. Additional fundraising plans to acquire the equipment needed for intermediate and advanced film courses are in the works. You can stay up to date by visiting us here at RippleMinistries.org and joining our email list. Find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/rippleministries.org
Thank you for your prayers and support!
All the preparation, paperwork and fundraising over the last 2 years has brought us to this happy day! Students between the ages of 13 and 18 can sign up for our first workshop. Thanks to the hard work of Director of Programming, Mike Edwards, Instructors, Chris Gove and Ashley Pederson our beginning level film class is in its final stages of preparation.
In "Teen Storytellers Project-Introduction to Filmmaking" students will be introduced to the foundational concepts of storytelling through the medium of film. They will develop an understanding of key ideas and processes of filmmaking from pre-production, through filming, to editing and post production.
Each student will be assigned an I-pad to be used on campus. Parents are invited to view each student’s project at a showcase following the last session. The class will include two optional-attendance “Pizza and Movie Nights” where concepts of filmmaking will be discussed
Registration opens on Monday, December 10th and runs through the 17th of January. Our goal for this pilot program is to enroll 6 students at a discounted rate or scholarship those in need of assistance. The class will be perfect for beginners or kids that love shooting with their phones.
The class will meet at the Spot Teen Drop-in Center from 1 to 5 PM every Friday starting January 11th and wrapping up on February 15th with a showcase to follow. If you know of a student who would like to join the class they can get more information and register at rippleministries.org.
