We have some ambitious plans for 2015 that, if successful, will offer an entirely new level of services to the community. We will continue to focus on training our gifted students in all of the performing Arts. We will also add a new area of training for our students. Fire Escape Ministries, Inc. is gearing up for a major fund raiser campaign to empower us to build a full scale, media educational facility and working studio for serving the Tri-Cities. We will use any funds that we are blessed with to purchase computers, mixing boards, live performance gear, and software to educate our students in photography, media production, including audio and video, electronic music production (Midi, etc) and stabilizer based video acquisition. We will also be teaching internet technology including web hosting, web design and related skill sets to include graphics and CMS (content management systems, such as WordPress).
As a second phase, we intend to offer full scale media production services to other faith based organizations in our area, to both, save these establishments money on media services, AND to establish an income stream to further enable our mission. We see this as an exciting win/win/win scenario (students, our organization, and the community / organizations we will serve). We encourage all companies and individuals who are in the position to assist us with this mission to please contact us. All funds donated are tax exempt as we are a 501C3 organization.
