MAKING YOUR VIDEO
We pray that a powerful aspect of baptism at Journey is the video testimony shown right before your baptism. The video gives you the opportunity to share how you came to know Christ as your Savior and how he has been working in your life.
Prerecording allows you to do as many takes as necessary while sharing the message you have thoughtfully and prayerfully prepared ahead of time. Baptism is meant to be a public profession, and it is an incredible opportunity to share God’s message of redemption with lots of people.
Another important reason we do the videos is that we as a congregation grow in our faith by watching these stories. They allow friends, family, and even those you don’t know to celebrate the amazing transformation Christ has worked in your life.
Some people are nervous about taping their stories, but we promise to work hard to make the process both simple and fulfilling. After you’ve scheduled your baptism and filming date, you will receive emails with guidelines and information to help you prepare for your filming. One Sunday a month, we have a meeting with the baptism candidates for that month, where we go over everything they need to know about the baptism process and the videotaping. The video will be taped on the day of your meeting, which usually takes place two or three weeks before your baptism.
We want baptism to be a meaningful and enjoyable experience, and we look forward to walking through it with you! If you have any questions or need help preparing your testimony, please contact Travis Cole at 502-876-9000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
