The media industry educates us, it updates us, the media entertains us, and it connects us. It shapes our identities and informs our attitudes. But at its foundation, media is only a tool to communicate a message; it is a very effective “how” to society’s “what”. The Media stream is passionate about both, introducing you to different fields of media and how to use them effectively within the Kingdom. One message influencing many through the lens of media.


The MEDIA stream aims to adopt tomorrow’s platforms for today’s Kingdom purpose, providing experience across the broad span of the media spectrum while laying a solid Biblical foundation for life.


The outcomes for the MEDIA stream are based on these key principles:

1. Introduce you to a wide variety of media platforms including photography, videography, graphic design, sound design and more.

2. Gain an understanding of the creative industry by interacting with real world media companies and experts.

3. Develop your creative thinking to enable you to communicate and release a message that will influence the culture.

4. Unlock and discover your God given creative talents.

5. Acquire practical experience in different forms of media by being an integral part of weekly events requiring skills learned throughout the course.


I went into the gap year not knowing what to expect and not knowing that God had breakthrough in store for me. At the beginning of 2015, I really did not believe in myself as a person. I did not think I was good enough, and I always compared myself with other people.

During the year I experienced His Father heart, and His amazing love for me. I have found my identity firmly in God, and now know who I am in Him and the purposes He has for me. I am not scared to be myself and embrace my personality. I also realized that not everyone is going to like you in this life, but I adore the people that love me and influence me in a good way. And I am very proud to be a daughter of the King who gave me life.

Being part of The Media Academy, and me wanting to go in to the media industry, I really needed to accept that every artist is unique. I have found my true potentials and God has opened new creative doors for me. I really am grateful for the media team at Victory church and my mentors who motivated me to help me realise my potential.
