It's happening, but there is still a way to go! My name is Joseph Cheetham-Wilkinson, I am the writer and creator of Jovis Bon-Hovis, a Bible-centred children's show seen on television networks around the world.

I would like your financial support so that I can raise £3,000 per month, enabling me to go into production of daily Bible-centred video content to be made available for free to children all over the world. Here are two examples of what such videos will look like: 



I am also the producer of 'Faith in Action', and our newest children's production, 'Hunter and Twerp, Scripture Seekers!'.  I see no greater purpose in this life than raising the next generation in the love of Jesus and the knowledge of God.

Today's children need Jesus and His Word so desperately, and in order to reach them I need predictable income for this next major project, because it is a large undertaking and a long-term mission.  Please become a patron today and help me reach my goal, to reach more children around the world with the Gospel than ever before.

Children are watching hours of video every day and we intend to be there for them, so we are doing an exciting new thing; meeting children where they are and in a medium they will connect with and enjoy, DAILY! To fulfil this vital mission, I need resources.

Sporadic episodes and occasional series' just aren't reaching children where they are.  Your money will free me to commit the time required for complex daily professional video productions, for the production of free, wholesome Christian videos for all children, worldwide.

Why me? I have years of experience writing and producing Christian content for children, but it's mainly been for TV, and it's time to expand the vision and the reach to those children spending hours per day filling their minds with unhelpful content online.

This is a completely unique mission.  There is nobody currently making high quality daily Christian videos like these for all children everywhere, so let us grasp that opportunity and share Jesus with them.

Why videos? Children around the world are watching a staggering amount of video content on phones, tablets and computers. The good news of Jesus must be there for them, not just in one-off television series' and productions, but as a sincere, committed, long-term strategy of ongoing daily 'as-they-grow' discipleship. Children want Jesus! So let's show Him to them.

My fun, engaging Christ-centred videos will always be free, always fresh, always daily, and always made easily accessible.

This is a large-scale vision for a significant impact on a new generation, and we are looking for people who want to know that their money is being used powerfully and effectively, in a way that makes a real and long-term difference to lives.

My success and ability to move forward is directly linked to the time and resources I have to invest in this ministry.

I am devoted to making a relationship with God through Jesus relevant, appealing and exciting to children. I seek to truthfully and responsibly minister God's Word, and while I am an active member of my local church, I am not working on behalf of one particular denomination. Click the button at the top of this page to join me in the great commission, by committing to nurture children's faith as they grow in this new, exciting and very necessary way.

FAQ:

Q: What exactly will these videos look like?
A: Have a look at the examples above.  These were created to demonstrate what can be practically achieved as a daily output.

Q: What kind of topics will you cover?
A: We believe that the Bible is relevant to young lives, and that there are as many topics to cover as there are stories, parables and concepts in Scripture. Every episode will be carefully produced with the child in mind, not watering down theology but rather creating nutritious milk appropriate for young palates.

Q: How long do I have to commit for?
A: You can cancel your commitment whenever you like. We would like patrons to join us for the long term, but if you can only give for a few months we would be very grateful.

Q: What happens to the money raised before the threshold?
A: £3,000 pcm is the first major milestone, this is where the budget-proper kicks in and our foundational production of daily children's videos can begin in earnest. Until that time money will be used to prepare and make ourselves ready for the launch so we can hit the ground running. We will be prioritising public awareness in order to reach our goal as soon as possible, the purchase of equipment in advance, legal documents and fees, website and social media development, normal living expenses, production of sets and props, rent and preparation of studio space.

Q: Are we giving this money to you personally?
A: Yes.  Patronage represents an established and time-honoured system of commissioning and releasing people into a good work. Historically all kinds of people have been funded by patrons from artists to missionaries to students.  Patronage exists to release gifted and talented people to undertake work in their field of expertise which they would otherwise have been unable to carry out, by seeking like minded people who are willing to support them. In the past, this has often been acheived with several large donors, but modern platforms like Patreon now allow larger numbers of people to support good causes with smaller amounts.
