Guest speaker: Dan Herman, Ministry Development, Aslan Youth Ministries
 

Aslan provides relationship-driven programs that impact and empower at-risk youth.

Aslan Youth Ministries is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Red Bank, New Jersey. For the past 41 years, we have provided community outreach programs to impoverished areas in Monmouth County. In 1996, Aslan also established an outreach in Ouanaminthe, Haiti, along the northeastern border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

You may recognize the name Aslan as the central character in C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia series. We bring what Aslan, the lion, stands for – compassion, guidance and truth – to the children we serve in New Jersey and Haiti.

Aslan’s programs include one-on-one mentoring and tutoring, character development classes anchored in Christian values and principles, recreational activities, summer camps and cultural enrichment programs.

Through continual encouragement, Aslan helps children reach deeply within their hearts so they can learn to overcome the obstacles in their lives and, with God’s help, find the strength to endure and succeed.

Pres. Barb thanks Frank Farrell, Custom Video Productions
 
 
Speaker: Frank Farrell, Custom Video Productions
 
in high school, Frank bought his own video production gear and started shooting weddings and other events. Eventually landed a job as the video guy at Bell Laboratories, he did a lot of freelance work for AT&T.
As the video thing started to snowball, He learned two valuable lessons.
 
First, he could never have a real job. So he created his own job, and Custom Video Productions (CVP) was born. That was back in 1978, when we recorded on film and edited with razor blades.
 
Second, it’s all about the story. Frank spoke and shared a video on how to best create videos using nothing more than a smartphone and a few inexpensive props.  To see more of Frank’s work or to contact him directly, visit his website.
