What is covered
The young writers send in a daily article on the Hillsong conference, it’s speakers, the ambience, the people ….. while Grace Mathew’s specialises in her entertaining manner on the overall Hillsong event and a summing up piece. Daniel writes an annual Hillsong music piece.
Christian Today over the years reports their readership is greatly enhanced by the Hillsong articles and photographs.
Mercer Media who organise the Hillsong media accreditation thoroughly appreciate the young writer participation covering Hillsong and accredit the names we send into their office.
This continues to be a very pleasing arrangement whereby the Gospel of Jesus Christ is presented to a world wide audience through Christian Today.
