"Milwaukee's Mobile Media Van Ministry"

Serving Jesus Christ in the Streets of Milwaukee

Milwaukee's Media Van in Action

What is the Media Van?

Milwaukee Mobile Media Van

Run through  BASICS in Milwaukee, the Mobile Media Ministry is designed to serve and bring hope to urban Milwaukee. On the outside, large LED screens cover one side of the van, showing inspirational videos. On the inside there are tables and refreshments. Whether it’s  Sunday school for kids, a respite for homeless, or a good time of worship on wheels, we at the Mobile Media Ministry desire to reach the  parks and street corners with the Good News and love of Christ in a genuine and biblical way.

Milwaukee’s Urban Servant

John Jones Media Van Milwaukee

John Jones loves the Lord. He was happily married for 27 years to his beautiful wife, Lori, until her untimely death to cancer. He is a father of five and a Vietnam war veteran. With nearly forty years of video production experience, John loves to visualize and share what the Lord has done through the eye of a video camera. He worked at Milwaukee’s WTMJ 4 and then as Video Director at Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

In the Beginning

Milwaukee's Media Van Model and Full Sized Van

Milwaukee’s Media Van was originally a medical emergency van that cruised the streets, screening for tuberculosis in the 1970′s. John Jones came across it in 1997 after it had been auctioned off. The Lord allowed him to purchase it and he stored for fourteen years until God issued the call to take it to the streets.

Though their time was short, the team felt blessed, certain that a large part of their calling was to the young people.

Embracing Contrast (Part 1)

Many things are different from the last summer season for the Media Van, yet other things have stayed the same.

A Flood of Provision

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

Christmastime is Here!

But the videos, which were some of the best yet, were constantly playing on the screens and their music could be heard from all around Clark House… much like seeing the star over Bethlehem.

Giving, Receiving, and Giving

John and Sammi cleaned up the Media Van headquarters and set up an “end of the summer” reception for all the major donors from across the years.

Keep On Keeping On

When we are not out on the streets, we are in the churches, bible studies, and meetings, presenting the Media Van’s mission and allowing more and more people to have the opportunity to give and get involved.
