Reading Psalm 23 on Long Street

Instead of a typical promotional video, the incredible Wim Steytler put this together for us to  give people  a taste of VOX City Church.

The street on which it is shot is one of the busiest and most “notorious” (the party street!) in Cape Town.  For the first 6 months we met in a theatre on Long Street and now we meet just off of Long Street.

Two things I love about this approach:

1) Instead of self-promotion we attempt to engage the city and the creatives by simply making a good video.

2) I think the ethnic and cultural diversity represented in this clip is a taste of me of my dreams for VOX
