Milwaukee's Media Van in Action

What is the Media Van?

Milwaukee Mobile Media Van

Affiliated with 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.

End of 2014

The Lord moves in ways we cannot, but He does invite us to join Him for the ride.

Embracing Contrast (Part lll)

The Lord brought us these people and moments in His perfect timing and circumstance; nothing was wasted.

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

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!

Jesus Saves!

Spreading the Word

Students at Heritage Christian School in Brookfield, Wisconsin, hear the story of the...

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.
