Sabeel Annual International Media Training, Dearborn Michigan


Dear Friends and Supporters,
We just finished celebrating our 10th year of service and we are excited about the future that God has for us!  After our board meeting in November we feel reinvigorated and reenergized to move forward expanding our reach with stories and messages of eternal hope.


We are happy to announce we have some new team members who just moved to Michigan from Virginia to serve alongside us.  They have moved into our local community here in the Dearborn area and have been learning and getting oriented to our work.  They are already VERY qualified in media strategies and have been working for decades in the media as well as recently completing an International Media Services training that is offered by one of our partners.

We believe that one of the best ways for our new team members to continue to increase their engagement in creating life-transforming media and interacting well with our community is for them to attend the 8th Annual International Media Consultation beginning March 21st.

GOALS for the International Media Consultation 2018

  • Attend as learners, observing and listening.
  • Engage one of the 4-day intensive training tracks to gather new skills, tools and ideas to increase SABEEL MEDIA’S effectiveness in digital engagement with our audiences.
  • Networking, connecting and partnering with other individuals & organizations at the 4-day consultation portion for increased impact.
  • Nurture and improve current and ongoing relationships.
  • Attend a Media Strategy Forum for 2 additional days at the end of the consultation.
