Three leaders from Adventist Media (AM) visited the Papua New Guinea Union Mission (PNGUM) headquarters in Lae last week to discuss existing projects and to look at new opportunities in media and communications.

CEO Dr Brad Kemp, CFO Shaun Lorentz and head of news and editorial Tracey Bridcutt met with Union leaders to consider a variety of projects, including radio and TV, godpods, literature ministry, church branding, digital discipleship and support for the 2024 PNG for Christ program.

“After the long shutdown where travel was restricted due to COVID-19, it was great to connect in-person with leadership of PNGUM again and to look at ways we can provide meaningful support for the mission of the Church in PNG,” Dr Kemp said.

Mrs Bridcutt spent a day at Pacific Adventist University (PAU), where she presented a workshop on how to effectively communicate at a time of misinformation and fake news, and the power of story. “It was amazing to visit the beautiful PAU campus for the first time,” Mrs Bridcutt said. “And it was important to get a better understanding of the challenges that the university is facing—essentially the need for more staffing resources and better infrastructure to cater for the rapid growth in student numbers.”

About 50 students and lecturers attended the presentation by Mrs Bridcutt.
