Established in 1988, we produce marketing, educational, fundraising and documentary television programming. We've produced programming for the United States Department of Education, the Presbyterian Church USA, billion dollar corporations, foundations, hospitals, schools, churches, and businesses. In the last few years I've taped from New Jersey to California, and in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Israel, and Mexico.
I have a unique relationship to the Presbyterian denomination. During my studies at Princeton Theological Seminary I became involved with the former Division of Mass Media in NYC and served a media internship with the former Northern California Council of Churches. Following graduation and a brief period at the Ewing Presbyterian Church in Trenton, New Jersey, I returned to the West Coast and received a master's degree in Radio and Television Production from San Francisco State University. As that program was being completed I received a call to the Lakeside Presbyterian Church in San Francisco, where I served as the senior pastor from 1975 to 1986. Along with the usual pastoral and administrative responsibilities (we had three ordained clergy and two interns on staff when I left) I had two weekly radio broadcasts. We also broadcast our Sunday services via closed circuit television to hospitals and cable stations.
In 1986 my wife and I went cross country again, this time in order to obtain a master's degree from The Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. My first contract as Interlink Media, in 1988, was with the Council on Theological Education producing their fundraising video for seminaries.
My time in the parish ministry convinced me that Christian education and officer training require bringing the best of technology into adult education and Sunday School classrooms. I introduced "John Calvin" in his hi-tech role as teacher of an officer training video series in 1990. Over 5,000 congregations and hundreds of thousands of lay people have benefitted from "Calvin's" wisdom. I'm currently working on transforming the video on our Book of Confessions, "To All Generations," into a DVD format.
