Traveling North! Equipping Pastors and Christian Business Leaders in Canada

Traveling North! Equipping Pastors and Christian Business Leaders in Canada

This week, Phil and Kathleen Cooke have their bags packed for Canada! They’ll be speaking at two conferences in Winnipeg, organized by the Entrepreneurial Leaders Organization (ELO). The first conference is tailored towards Christian business leaders and entrepreneurs, while the second is geared towards local pastors in Winnipeg and the surrounding area.

In the ever-evolving landscape of the digital world, one of the most critical skills in business and ministry is the ability to lead creative people. “It’s the designers, filmmakers, video producers, writers, composers, and other creative professionals that will drive an organization’s message, awareness, and marketing,” Phil Cooke commented.

He will be teaching the business leaders the art of leading creative teams, and during the pastor’s conference, he will conduct an interactive Q&A session to address and offer strategic solutions as they incorporate digital media in their outreach efforts. He added, “ELO is an incredibly effective network raising a generation of visionary Christian leaders. I’m honored to be asked to share techniques to inspire and motivate these amazing teams.”

“Sex Trafficking, Starving Children, and World Peace: Three Reasons Why You Should Care About Women Working in Media” is Kathleen’s topic for the business leadership conference as she advocates for women. “As we face major global disruptions to our society, we need women in the media and arts industries with a biblical worldview,” she shared. “We need them empowered, trained, and ignited to create artistic projects and stories that resonate and affect the culture. I am thrilled to be that voice for women at this conference.”

The training sessions this week, and in November as Phil and Kathleen travel to Vancouver for more ELO-sponsored events, offer a broader picture of how The Influence Lab is elevating the message of pastors, leaders and Christian communicators worldwide.

Global Opportunities Expand as MEDIAlliance International and The Influence Lab Announce New Partnership

Global Opportunities Expand as MEDIAlliance International and The Influence Lab Announce New Partnership

A new alliance between MEDIAlliance International and The Influence Lab offers expanded opportunities to strengthen and train Christian pastors and media leaders in global settings. 

Los Angeles, CA (May 23, 2023)— The power of partnership is being realized as MEDIAlliance International and The Influence Lab announce a new partnership committed to training and strengthening Christian pastors and media leaders on a global scale. The alliance expands upon a long-term friendship and like-minded ministry between MEDIAlliance president, Dr. Ron Harris and The Influence Lab founder, Dr. Phil Cooke.

With regional offices in Asia, Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Brazil, MEDIAlliance leads Christian leadership forums to help key media leaders increase their impact in sharing the gospel. Similarly, The Influence Lab offers training and equipping for pastors and Christian communicators in areas of the world where access to media training is not readily available. Although Phil Cooke has spoken at many MEDIAlliance forums, the strategic partnership offers opportunities for the two ministries to work more closely together for greater effect.

Harris expressed excitement at the expanded role that the partnership brings. “Phil Cooke is amazing at helping people think beyond the norm in communicating God’s truth,” said Harris. “His challenging insights take people to a different level in leadership and ministry.”

Cooke responded, “Ron Harris has done a remarkable job building offices in strategic countries. With that foundation, we have an amazing opportunity to engage with Christian media leaders around the world.”

The Influence Lab and Cooke Media Group, both founded by Phil Cooke, have influenced Christian media for many years. Cooke has worked with many of the most respected churches and ministries around the world and his books have become texts for leadership development and media training.

MEDIAlliance International began in 2013 as an extension of Ron Harris’s over fifty years in media, church leadership and broadcast ministry, as well as his service as a communication professor at university and seminary levels. MEDIAlliance currently works with Christian media leaders in over forty countries.

MEDIAlliance and The Influence Lab Prayer are seeking prayer and financial partners to join them in their united mission of training pastors and media leaders globally. As 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, gifts are tax-deductible.
