Be a Snaptavist

There are many ways we can support Christians who are facing difficult circumstances: we can pray for them, we can donate money to fund practical initiatives, we can even support Christian workers who are able to visit them in person. But what about those of us who aren’t able to visit but still want to make a personal impact? Well, we have some good news! We are able to contribute on a personal level by giving from our own skills and abilities. There are children in various countries who have been through traumatic ordeals, have lost members of their families and have been left alone. As they reach their teens many will have already witnessed, to a degree, the severe cost of choosing to follow Christ in their country. In this section you will find a selection of creative ideas that have been put together to inspire you to get inventive in helping out. Be a part of their story.

A snaptavist is someone who stands up for justice and speaks up for peace, by using social media.

We want our snaptavist to use Imagery as a way of expressing the issues surrounding persecution.

Step 1: Start getting creative and focus on what you’re going to produce around the following issues…

  • THE COST OF FOLLOWING JESUS
  • THE ULTIMATE PRICE
  • GRACE
  • FORGIVENESS
  • FAMILY
  • LOVE

Step 2: Get snapping, add text, filters and make video etc….

Step 3: Share on Release Potential’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram
