The Mission

Visual Story Network equips the church worldwide through media, story, and technology. We train leaders, build networks, and produce media.

The vision

To foster movements of media, story and innovation that accelerate disciple-making and church planting. A movement is a group of people with a shared set of aims bigger than any single entity. We nurture these movements so the collective impact is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Our desire is that all involved would share a common vision, value collaboration and give more than they receive. 

What they do

Clyde leads the Visual Story Network, a community of 450 organizations and 3300 leaders in 95 nations using media, story and innovative technology to offer everyone the chance to encounter Jesus and His kingdom. 350 projects, products and partnerships have reached an estimated 4 million people.

VSN initiatives include the Mobile Ministry Forum, the Middle East Women’s Leadership Network (MEWLN), Mission Media U and the Augmented/Virtual Reality Network.

Shirin is a media producer and network leader for MEWLN and author of Muslims Next Door and Wanting All The Right Things.

who they are

Shirin met Christ at Antioch Bible Church in high school and then met Clyde on the mission field in Türkiye and from 1985 to 2000, across 3 continents. 

They poured their lives into hundreds of students because someone cared enough to do it for each of them when they were in college. Before co-founding VSN, they were involved in media development for Jesus Film Project and coordinated the campus work of Cru throughout North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. 

Clyde holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland/College Park and a Master of Divinity / Missiology degree with honors from Denver Seminary. He speaks English, French and Turkish. Shirin is a graduate of the University of Washington and speaks English, Farsi and French.
