Reaching Filipino Methodist Youth Online
By Joel Richardson
Many young people are visual learners and love watching videos about fashion, workouts, cooking, music, and more. Young people are also increasingly using graphics and videos to share what they experience and what they are doing.
My Facebook feed on Sundays is filled with verses, videos of on-going church services, and snippets of videos from a pastor’s sermon.
To reach young people in the Philippines, the national officers of the United Methodist Youth Fellowship in the Philippines (UMYFP) started VidTalks, a series of online videos that talk about faith and the gospel. I talked with Kevin John Maddela, the President of the NUMYFP, to find out more about the VidTalks.
