Audio Ethics, Evangel Cathedral, FaithNetwork and Technologies For Worship Magazine Come Together to Form "Global Technology Missions"
TORONTO- APRIL XXXX, 2010- Global Technology Missions (GTM) is a new not-for-profit organization formed by Audio Ethics, Evangel Cathedral, FaithNetwork and Technologies For Worship Magazine. Its mission: to deliver essential technical equipment and monetary assistance to facilities in areas affected by disaster.
Several organizations are doing an incredible job of donating food and water, clothing and other supplies to affected crisis areas. GTM has been formed to address a specific need; its function is to deliver necessary technical systems to facilities in affected areas through coordinating product donations and monetary contributions.
GTM is a project that focuses on retention and sustainability. These technical systems are meant to serve as building blocks for these organizations to promote reconstruction and to sustain growth.
"GTM has been formed to help people build a foundation of hope for others." explains Donnie Haulk, President of Audio Ethics. "To do this, GTM facilitates the collection and transporting of technical infrastructure to devastated facilities. By delivering these necessary technical systems, GTM will help these organizations not only get back on their feet, but hit the ground running."
Many manufacturers and organizations have access to perfectly good technology that is currently not in use. GTM will serve to facilitate the process of delivering that technology to facilities in areas of need. There are also plans to deliver training resources to teams and volunteers so that they can maximize the use of these technical tools.
The first project in line for GTM is to provide necessary technical systems for Family Tabernacle of Praise in Port au Prince, Haiti. Since the earthquake struck in January, the church is gathering in a parking lot underground. Family Tabernacle had several ministries in place to help surrounding communities, including schools, addiction counseling as well as clean water and food delivery to the poor. All of these ministries were severely affected by the disaster. By delivering essential technical resources to Faith Tabernacle, the team leaders and volunteers will be able to reach out to the community more effectively and spread an important message: that there is hope in Haiti.
"Technology is something that people don't automatically think of," says Dr. Randal S. Langley, Lead Pastor of Evangel Cathedral. "GTM aims to empower local facilities by giving them the necessary technical equipment they need to operate. These people need the right tools to continue spreading the message of hope to others."
GTM is launching a website www.globaltechnologymissions.org provided by FaithNetwork. More information will be made available on the site as the project develops.
