The 2023 PAK7 Media School selection weekend has been completed, with 43 excellent candidates from all over Pakistan. We are grateful to God for providing the peace and stability which allowed us to gather these 18-30 year olds so that we could discover more about them.
Gul Naushad, PAK7 Training Manager writes:
‘It’s so exciting to meet a room full of young adults who want to be part of the Christian media industry here in Pakistan. It’s important to us to find those who are teachable, talented and who have a heart for the Lord. So we spend a lot of time speaking with them and seeing how they perform as individuals and as part of a team.’
The PAK7 Media School is an intensive hands-on media training and discipleship program. All the students stay here at the PAK7 training center in Murree – living, working, eating, worshiping and learning together for ten weeks.
As they engaged in challenging group and individual tasks, candidates realized that this isn’t just a chance to have fun in the mountains for ten weeks, but that it’s an opportunity to change the course of their lives. PAK7 Media School students go on to get an excellent, practical education in how to serve God through television and social media, and our graduates are doing just that!
Seven of the members of our selection panel were graduates of PAK7 Media School in 2019 and 2021. Each is now working with PAK7 to produce quality Christian TV and social media. We are very proud of them. For our prospective students, meeting them was an encouragement to work hard to get a place on the school!
The PAK7 Media School 2023 starts in July, and there are only 25 places available. Selecting students was difficult:
“We’ve spent a lot of time this week, as a team, discussing which of the young adults to invite to join us at the Media School in July. It is so hard to say no to any of them. I can tell you honestly though, that the selection process was done fearfully, carefully and prayerfully, as we know that our decisions will have a big impact on the direction of their lives.” Gul
A list of successful candidates will be released soon, we ask that you would uphold them in prayer as God prepares their hearts for an encounter with him this summer.
