Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile, works in partnership with Iglesia de Cristo Church in Santiago to create worship videos. This team shares the Gospel through social media with many young people in the city of Santiago, with the hope that this media will not only be useful locally but globally, as well. Their latest project is a series of short videos and music to focus on how the coming of Jesus has changed the world and can also change the lives of individuals.
Project Nomad-Eldoret, Kenya, was GNPI's first Project Nomad team, and they continue to create videos addressing a wide range of culturally relevant topics with the Gospel message. The team works with many communities in the Great Rift Valley, such as the Pokot, Tugens, Marakwets, and Turkanas. In this region, inter-community conflicts and wars abound. With the help of a GNPI Solar Kit, the team started showing films and producing videos that focused on Jesus Christ as the Prince of Peace. As a result, inter-community conflicts have drastically decreased, and these communities meet together in newly planted churches to solve their problems amicably with love.

This team formed four years ago. A pastor, our local leader for students, recently arranged a one-day media workshop and Nomad preview for anyone interested in their local area. Around 26 students from five different places traveled to attend the media workshop. This workshop gave the students an overview of the training and also explained the Nomad definition very clearly. The youth and locals in this region have great passion for Jesus, creating worship music videos, biblical teaching series, testimonies, and even short films.

GNPI’s international staff members will serve as regional Nomad Academy coaches, providing guidance for students as they work their way through the material. To help me explain each major course of Nomad Academy, here are four of those international coaches
