Opening Night

This session will hold a mix of activities in order to get to know each other better, introduce newcomers and receive some thought-provoking input. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy old friendships and start building new ones! And we’ll do our best to add some real Dutch treats to the programme!

Worship and Prayer

The worship and prayer is a special time and not to be missed. It’s when the most significant business of CEVMA is done, with God and each other. A time during which we ‘tank up on grace’, share our challenges, joys and blessings and receive mutual encouragement for the work we are called to to. But most importantly, it’s a time when we can celebrate God’s Love and experience our unique bond in Jesus Christ!

Bible Talks

The Bible Talks have always been a highlight of CEVMA and an important aspect of our conference. This year will be no different as together we seek to learn more about the One we serve, how we keep Him at the centre of our lives and work.

CEVMA Networking

This has become a regular feature of our conference, one looked forward to and much anticipated. It’s an opportunity to share news about your organisation, projects and objectives. Sign up for a slot (approximately 7 minutes) at registration and come prepared with a show reel, clip or PowerPoint presentation, if you so desire – the time is yours.

Plenary sessions

The plenary sessions offer valuable insights in the ever changing world of international media. Speakers will discuss all kinds of topics related to our conference theme and cater to our needs and challenges as media professionals. There are also plenty of opportunities to hear from colleagues. You’ll find inspiration and encouragement for the work God has given you.

Outing

This year’s outing features a trip to the ‘Fuchskaute’, an extinct volcano and, at 657.3 m above sea level, the highest mountain of the Westerwald and the county of Westerwaldkreis in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Wolf-Dieter Kretchmer

Wolf-Dieter Kretschmer (60) is married to Antje and the father of four children. After studying Theology at London School of Theology he went on to complete a postgraduate course in Film & TV Studies at Middlesex University. For 25 years he led the TV department at ERF Medien in Wetzlar, Germany. In mid-2015 he accepted a new challenge as the head of the editorial team that majors in theology for ERF’s radio, TV and Internet programming. In his free time he blogs on leadership topics (www.leitenundleben.de).

Since mid-2016, Wolf-Dieter has spearheaded the development of a system by which ERF tries to classify and quantify the spiritual impact of its programming on viewers, listeners and Internet users. It is called ‘die Lebenswendeskala’ (‘The Life-Change Scale.’) This also feeds into a new editorial strategy of ‘Evangelistische Zuspitzung’ (‘Evangelistic Build-up’), so that ERF content can better motivate people to make such life-change decisions, including the first decision to become a Christ-follower for some; and to also help them in the further development of their relationship with God. At CEVMA 2018, Wolf-Dieter will be speaking about the implementation of this two-prong strategy.

Ingo Marx

Ingo Marx has been working in television for 20 years. He started as a quiz writer for the production company Endemol Entertainment and then switched to ERF Medien. There he is now Head of Television and thus responsible for ERF’s TV programming output. He is also a host on the ERF program, ‘Gott sei Dank’ (‘Thank God’.) Over the years Ingo has written various books portraying the moving life stories of numerous people from all walks of life.

In 2014 he completed the ‘Storytelling Masterclass’ of Uwe Walter (Waltermedia.) In the process, he discovered the ‘Hero’s Journey’ storytelling model – and has since then been conveying it to all incoming program producers at ERF Medien. The model is not only a useful tool for structuring stories, Ingo says, but also helps one to understand one’s own life story better. And best of all: ‘Hero’s Journey’ actually goes to the heart of the Gospel.

Good stories can change lives! That is the conviction of TV editorial producer Tanja Rinsland.

There is a special focus on formats for social media platforms and the development of a tri-medial editorial department (radio, TV, web).

Born and raised in a missionary family ministering to the inner-city needy in Sao Paulo, ‘German-Brazilian’ Tanja got to witness – and be a part of – much real-life drama from a young age on, plus quite a bit of street theatre, the start of a lifelong passion for storytelling. In her spare time, she enjoys patchwork quilting or trying out her newest hobby, sport climbing. She is married to Kai, an editorial music producer for radio.

Naomi van Dooren

Naomi’s passion for music was passed down from her parents. Her first bed not being a cradle but a banana box in a tipi in 1973. As the first of five daughters she was born to an American mother and a German father who came to faith as hippies during the Jesus People movement in California the night before she was born. In 1975 they went to Germany as missionaries. Naomi was raised on the Bible, a whole lot of live music and no TV, out of which emerged her unique and distinctive music career.

Naomi’s concerts are enhanced by various short films that accompany her songs to highlight their meaning, taking her audience on an unforgettable emotional journey. Her songs are filled with depth and passion as she sings of the highs and lows of life, and finding hope and fulfillment through it all. Honestly, humbly, lovingly and sometimes fiercely – she sings about matters of the heart.
