There’s a lot of darkness in the world. And as believers, it’s our job to take the light that’s inside us — the light of the world — into the dark places and share the gospel message.
For the ministries and nonprofits that exist for that sole purpose, they need to be able to share their good work with the world, and that’s where Lantern Vision comes in. Lantern Vision, founded by Samford graduate Nathan Troost, exists to capture and communicate God’s stories around the globe through visual storytelling.
Nathan Troost’s wife, Flori, describes it as “a ministry covering other ministries,” helping people be more engaged with the work of a wide range of ministries. Since its inception, Lantern Vision has partnered with organizations in the fields of child advocacy, medical ministry, poverty relief, Christian education and evangelism.
Nathan Troost said of Lantern’s mission, “Our goal is to understand how the ‘godlight’ is working within ministries … and share this with people who might never get to go to places like Liberia, Romania and West Africa.”
Since 2011, Lantern Vision has created more than 600 short films in more than 50 countries. To celebrate those 10 years of gospel-driven storytelling, Lantern held a dinner Sept. 9 for ministry partners and supporters.
During the dinner, participants heard testimonials from Herbie Newell of Lifeline Children’s Services, Anne Lucas of e3 Medical, Matt Letourneau of Neverthirst, Phaye Wilson of Restoration Academy and George Childs of OneHundredFold.
