A short video has been produced on the young writer ministry – ‘Press Service International’ - being presented the 2019 Australasian Religious Press Association (ARPA) premier award - The Gutenberg.
Press Service International (PSI) in conjunction with Christian Today Australia and Christian Today New Zealand for 10 years have provided a publishing avenue for young people (18-30) in order for these young writers to express their ‘voice’ in the market place of ideas.
This video also highlights Sophia Sinclair a former young writer being elected President of ARPA, and Matthew Thornton a young writer from Auckland awarded an ARPA BRONZE in the category – New Best Writer.
Then the video houses in on The Gutenberg Award,
The previous ARPA President, Salvation Army’s Major Peter McGuigan concluded in 2011 (Peter Bentley 2012-19) wrote (with permission) -
“Congratulations on the Gutenberg. I read the citation and your response. So well-deserved. I’m so thankful Mark to you for what you and your team have done to nurture young writers.”
