Greetings, my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ!

I am happy and excited to announce to you the birth of a new Christian Graphics and Video Ministry that will dwarf all others by comparison: the New GUW [God’s Ultimate Weapon] Video And Graphics Ministry, Inc. The current website has been leveled and a new one is being constructed that will contain the entire portfolio of visual animation and graphics that I have created using Adobe AE Templates built from my contacts in Rome Italy; Tucumán, Argentina; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Chelyabinsk; Russian Federation; Turkey; Pleven, Bulgaria and - of course - the United States. All videos have been created using Adobe AE CS4, CS5; Adobe Photoshop, Cinema 4D and Sony Vegas. All videos have a resolution of HD 1080P.

If you are interested in having video projects built to introduce your ministry or upcoming events - contact me at or here, at Black Preaching Network. You can either contact me in the “comments” section on my profile page or send me a message. And don’t worry about pricing. I am trying to promote this business to introduce our churches to technology and visual graphics/animation that the unsaved world has been using in the last decade. Why should the devil have all of the “good stuff”, when it comes to video production, when the church desperately needs these tools to reach more of the unsaved for Jesus Christ?

A good 2-5 minute video (like the one above) could cost as low as $50 dollars to as high as $175 - depending on how much content you want in it. Now, compare that to the “professionals” who would charge you $20-$75 an hour and up! Don’t miss this opportunity to get on the cutting edge of visual technology! Hope to hear from you, soon, and may the Lord continue to bless you and to keep you!
