The Media Ninjas // Join Us
So you want to be a Media Ninja. Great. We understand. As if being able to put the word "Ninja" on your resumé weren't awesome enough, you're probably excited to hone your art and do it for the glory of God. But, what does it really mean to become a Media Ninja? Well, we have high standards, both for your art and your character.
Step 1: Love Jesus
Perhaps this seems obvious, but we want to make sure we're on the same page. Yes, the Ninjas work in the shadows. Yes, the Ninjas rarely interact with the public as part of their role. However, all of the media produced by the Ninjas is explicitly created for the Glory of God. In short, you can only point to Christ when you know who He is. And, if you know Jesus, you're going to love Him.
The Ninjas passionately believe that we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. (Phil. 4:13) Love Jesus; do all things through Him, and do all things for Him.
Step 2: Do Some Reading
People who serve anywhere in Drexel Students for Christ are required to agree wholeheartedly with our Statement of Faith and Philosophy of Ministry. Read them, get familiar with them, and believe them because everything we do is guided by the principles therein.
Step 3: Talk to James
James is the leader of the Media Ninjas, a Servant Team position, and takes his role both seriously and personally. He's here for you and will invest in you, to encourage your growth, while trying to steer you away from burnout.
To get started as a Ninja, talk with James. You'll discuss what you're interested in doing, how that may (or may not) be useful to Drexel Students for Christ at the moment, the Statement of Faith and Philosophy of Ministry (one of which James wrote, and the other of which James heavily edited), and what sort of tasks you could have handed to you. You can either come up to him after Large Group, or make an appointment. (If you make an appointment around meal-time, he'll almost certainly take you somewhere for food—in a professional/platonic/not-a-date way.)
Even if you aren't sure if this is the place for you, talk to James. He doesn't bite (and will buy you food).
