CHADDS FORD, Penn., Aug. 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- A one-time photo request to PhotoMission has led to a plan to perpetually support the growth of an initiative encouraging church-planting among people groups of the world. The initiative maintained as a database and ministry of Joshua Project, www.joshuaproject.net, began in 1995 to provide a central source of information on people groups having the least exposure to the Gospel. In 2002 photography began to be added to Joshua Project, visually expanding a resource that had previously been only a text and numerical index.
With the delivery today of twenty-eight photographs, PhotoMission said it will maintain a permanent project on the members’ side of its website to serve as a depository for other images that can be transferred and similarly used. PhotoMission’s members often travel in conjunction with their work in ministry and have access to different people groups through missions.
“Photos help personalize the global command that Jesus gave us in the Great Commission,” said Dan Scribner of Joshua Project. “Sometimes, least-reached people groups are simply viewed as entries on a list. PhotoMission images are helping to bring life to numerical data and show that these people groups are made up of precious individuals with great potential to glorify God. Joshua Project enthusiastically partners with the photographers of PhotoMission and sincerely appreciates their servants’ hearts, gracious spirit and outstanding photographic artistry.”
Joshua Project is a ministry of the U.S. Center for World Mission, www.uscwm.org, located in Pasadena, California.
PhotoMission, www.photomission.com, is a worldwide community of Christian photographers filling requests for images received from mission organizations, churches and Christian businesses. Its office is based in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
