It was one of those last minute GOD things when we met up with Caleb. It was a beautiful and very bright morning in Durham.
Caleb chatted about school and his passions and dreams. As he talked, it became more and more evident that what he was learning in school (media and film) fit very nicely with his passion for missions and Kingdom work.
He doesn’t need to choose between his Kingdom dream and his passion
for creative media. He only has to integrate them!
Here’s his story in his words:
My dream is to take the Kingdom to the places it’s never invaded before. I want to help plant churches, connect believers, and be a part of the ministry of reconciliation. God is so good. I’m just blown away by His provision and blessing. His ways are not our ways. His plans are way better.
I’m learning that my Kingdom Dreams and my other dreams aren’t really separate. It’s all one and the same. I love film and web design. I’m good at it too. God gave me a unique perspective and I love to explore it. I used to think I’d have to choose: missions or media — kingdom or creativity. God is redeeming that! He is showing me that the dreams He has placed in me are mine to grow and develop. He loves my perspective and wants me to love it too.
I had sort of lost sight of that for a while. Then I saw Lisa Anderson‘s Facebook post about being in North Carolina. I hadn’t seen her in a while and said she should come to Raleigh. Perfectly enough, she was on her way that day with the Kingdom Dreams tour. We met at my favorite coffee shop, along with the rest of the team, and the Holy Spirit. What followed was a wonderful time of encouragement, prayer, and revival of dreams. I’m so thankful for what God is doing with this ministry.
Speaking of a different perspective…I love this picture Lily took of me!!
