Martin and Julia Etter work and Veritas College
Martin and Julia were involved in training up leaders in their understanding of the Bible within local churches in Malawi. After seeing life in Malawi, they began to actively help the local people in their farming and cultivation, encouraging using different crops and trees to provide a better diet, and developing ovens that could be built locally–were more fuel efficient–and would help reduce de-forestation. As a result of their success they are now co-ordinating developing this work in various countries throughout Africa.
We use the same Veritas Training Method within AEC as we seek to develop people and leaders in the local church. This gives people confidence in the Scriptures, giving great tools to understand the Bible and to communicate it to others.
‘ GOD: new evidence’ is produced by Focus. Focus has been producing Christian mass media and new media projects for more than thirty years:
Starting in the 1970s, Focus produced the widely acclaimed ‘World of Science’ series of radio programmes, in which leading research scientists talked about their Christian faith. These programmes were broadcast from radio stations HCJB World Radio, FEBA, and many others.
For the next twenty years, Focus produced several highly successful series of programmes which were broadcast around the world and translated into nearly a dozen languages.
Over the past decade Focus has moved into the ‘new media,’ with web sites, DVDs, training courses and – most recently – podcasts and videos.
In 2006 Focus produced the ‘Jesus & The Da Vinci Code’ DVD in response to the film of Dan Brown’s book. The videos from this DVD were put on the Youtube web site, where they have been watched more than a hundred and fifty thousand times.
