Spotlight: Daniel Benitez
Tell us about yourself.
I Live in Miami. I am a 2nd generation American with Cuban descent. I got to Metro Life Church. I grew up in Miami. Growing up in a christian household, the need to learn the word was always essential. I grew up attending a Christian High School, learning the word was a part of my life. During high school while attending high school the needs for a new sound man for the youth group was needed, and I filled in the void. From there on I took on a bigger leadership role in the creative and media department.
What is your role/position at your church/company?
I do not have a title at church. I serve as a volunteer in the media and creative department, aiding staff members and creating and enhancing the church service environment.
What do you love most about your role?
I love creating and enhancing the Church Service by using the Media, like video and audio to further the presence of God in the service
How did you end up in the role you have now?
During high school while attending high school the needs for a new sound man for the youth group was needed, and I filled in the void. From there on I took on a bigger leadership role in the creative and media department. Serving on the Main team, I learned from the Team, as well as interning for the church and furthering developing my skills and craft. As the youth ministry and young adult ministry grew so did the needs of creativity and media.
Ok...How did you hear about VMC?
searching for inspiration to enhance the service and how we present our lyrics I had stumbled upon Visual Media Church at its beginning. From there I purchased the year long subscription and have been a part of the Visual Media Church family.
How often do you use VMC, and what do you love about what we do?
We use Visual Media Church backgrounds weekly and try to combine them to create new backgrounds. We love the diversity of the monthly packs.
Closing Thoughts? Something we missed?
Church Media is evolving quickly and each church is adapting to their audience in particular. I love getting inspiration from what is world looks at creatively and strive to put Christ back in all things creative because he is the ultimate creative.
