Media has played a large role in the church since the beginning. In the early days, men like Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, James, Peter, and Jude wrote letters containing eye witness accounts of the life of Jesus and full of God-breathed stories of salvation, and guidance and wisdom for the church. These letters were copied by hand and distributed by foot and ship among the churches located throughout the known world. For fifteen hundred years, this was the practice in the church. Then at the beginning of the age of the Reformation, the printing press was invented and the Bible was the first book printed on it. This is the heritage of Media Ministry at Village.
