Music with a MISSION
In February 2018, the first EP from NEON (Canada & Bermuda Territory) was released. The five- track EP, entitled Brighter in the Dark, was the driving force that inspired NEON to collaborate with the World Missions department. All of the proceeds raised from this recording go directly to projects that will benefit partner territories around the world.
In addition to raising funds for Partners in Mission, NEON wanted to raise awareness about this program and how people can get involved. They shot a music video and have been sharing it on social media.
“The aim with the music video was to use social media as a platform to inform a different demographic about what the Partners in Mission program is able to accomplish. We tried to be creative in how we showed the work that World Missions does, in a way that hadn’t been presented before. If we, through our music, can help practically in any way, we have a responsibility to take that opportunity. The song we used for the video (Brighter in the Dark) talks about how God’s love can shine in the dark places where there is need. It presents Jesus’ calling in our lives to be salt and light in the world.” – Simon Gough
