Welcome to Team Spotlight, a new feature in News & Prayer, which takes you behind the scenes of the SAT-7 UK team so you can get to know us a bit better!
We call ourselves ‘Comms’ for short, to save four valuable syllables. Which is ironic, really, because we are the team that love to speak and type a deluge of syllables every day at work.
So, what do we actually do? We produce the materials for SAT-7 UK. We research news stories, write content, make the website work, prepare publications for print, advertise SAT-7’s work and promote campaigns. We keep you, our supporters, informed and inspired so you can support what God is doing in the MENA through SAT-7. We are a creative bunch who love words, images, design and well-made digital media.
Communications Team! What do you do and what do you love about your work?
Lindsay: As Press and Communications Officer, I edit our Briefing communications and Insight magazine, and also work to raise awareness of SAT-7 through the UK Christian media. I love connecting with our MENA staff and learning how our programmes are bringing God’s love and values into the heart of the region.
Hugh: I’m an intern at SAT-7 and I am currently learning many new skills to help in the Communications Team. To contribute to work which helps God’s Kingdom advance is truly fulfilling work!
Alex: I’m Alex, and I do Digital Comms: website, email and social media. I love knowing the impact SAT-7 is having in lives across the Middle East. It’s these stories we hear and share with you that make working here a joy.
Benjamin: I’m the Communications and Resources Officer (maternity cover!); I write and design publications, such as News & Prayer. I enjoy writing articles and also love to read testimonies of SAT-7 viewers who have had their lives transformed by God.
Steve: I’m the Acting Communications Manager. I coordinate the work of the communications team and edit and sign off the materials that they produce. I enjoy promoting SAT-7’s important ministry through many different channels.
- Father, thank you for the Communications Team at SAT-7 UK. Please bless their creativity. Help them to be productive in their work and to honour you by creating excellent materials. Please deepen their faith and further your kingdom through their work.
