AMTC’s media missionary training program is called The Bridge. It is unique, because two standards are used:

1) God’s standard: ‘When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him’ (Isaiah 59:19). Actors, models and talent for Christ are the standard He is lifting. As such, they must be spiritually prepared for the challenging field of 21st century media. On AMTC’s Bridge, they are grounded in The Word of God, lifted by godly talent consultants and surrounded by a loving fellowship of like-minded performers and families.

2) Man’s standard: ‘Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man’ (Luke 2:52). AMTC’s background as mainstream talent developers (for our first 24 years) set us up to polish performers for national-level work. Like Joseph in Egypt or Daniel in Babylon, God’s talent must learn the culture of entertainment to rise and shine for God. Teams of excellent coaches, stylists and photographers help prepare them for success.

On The Bridge, AMTC’s performers are lifted spiritually and physically, to become stars for God: to become positive role models in a world that desperately needs them. The Bridge Training Program includes:

Access to

  • A unique talent education combining spiritual and physical preparation
  • Over 250 articles, videos and photo tutorials divided into seven study modules
  • Cross training for marketability: versatility is the key to greater appeal
  • Style training: raise your image to national level
  • Daily Devotions: entertainment industry-focused
  • Regional and national casting notifications
