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 Dublin City, ‘a small capital with a huge repuation’.

Andy du Feu

Andy du Feu is Vice-Principal (Academic) at Moorlands Bible College in the UK and Director of Youth and Community Work, taking on course leadership of the undergraduate programmes.  Prior to working at Moorlands College, Andy served for 7 years as pastor of a non-denominational church in Oxfordshire. Alongside pastoral responsibilities, he invested in the youth work, and saw significant growth and fruit, including several young people going on to theological training.

Andy grew up in Rugby but spent the best part of 3 years working with children and teens in the USA with UrbanPromise, before studying at Moorlands College. He has worked in both church and local authority youth work contexts, and has contributed to local youth work networks, and more significantly, helped set up and develop the UK Christian Youth Work Consortium.

Andy’s current area of research is a synthesis of his MA research in Christian Leadership, in which he considered contemporary business orientations in church leadership settings, and his teaching at Masters level on digital theology and communication. The intent is to pursue a PhD that considers the digital footprint of Christian leaders, and related areas concerning digital literacy and authority.

Shahla Rahmati

Shahla Rahmati is an  Iranian who was  born into a Muslim family. Many years ago, she received the message of salvation in Jesus Christ and became a believer. She studied cinema and worked on cinema and television projects. She is also a poet and a writer. In 2011, she was arrested by the intelligence services for collaborating with Elam Ministries and sentenced to three years in prison. At the time Shahla was the owner of an electronics company and operating as its CEO, but the prison sentence prevented her from continuing the business. She spent four months in solitary confinement and further months with other political prisoners.

After her early release from prison, she emigrated to Europe and continued her activities with Elam Ministries. Elam’s media ministry produces TV content for both seekers and believers. An estimated 30 million Iranians have access to satellite TV, despite it being illegal in Iran. The evidence from response rates to Christian programming indicates that large numbers (probably more than one million) – of believers and non-believers alike – watch Christian TV.

Lukas and Salome Augustin

Lukas and Salome Augustin are an award-winning creative team of visual storytellers based in Berlin. Their work has been published on German national television (NDR/ARD), in Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, and internationally in The Washington Post and TIME Magazine. Lukas serves as a documentary director and journalist; Salome as a cinematographer, photographer and producer.

Among the awards and recognitions that the couple have received are: CNN Journalist Award (best documentary 2017, best online feature 2013); The Human Rights Award at Al-Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival; Forbes 30 under 30 Europe; an EMMY nomination and an Oscar nomination (best supporting camera.)

Together the couple seeks to access people and their stories in conflict zones and at the fringes of mainstream media coverage. They were one of the first media teams to enter Mogadishu, Somalia after the drought crisis in 2011 and Lukas went to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2012 to report about the ongoing exploitation of conflict minerals. The Augustins have become particularly well-known for their 75 minute documentary ‘UNFORGIVEN: RWANDA’ (2015) which shows the reconciliation work going on in Rwanda in the wake of the 1994 genocide there. The film features numerous powerful scenes as it focuses on the path to forgiveness and captures in a suitably low-key way the emotional trauma both the offender and offended are subjected to while trying to find closure. Gritty, heart-wrenching grace are thereby revealed; cheap grace would never cut it.

We have asked the Augustins to come show ‘UNFORGIVEN’ and share about their media work to highlight and thus help foster reconciliation and understanding between peoples in a fractured world.

Both, music and lyrics, being her way of encountering God.
