Parents,

Technology has changed the way we “do life” and the way missionaries “do missions.” We’re planning a project that will help [GAs/RAs/CAs] discover how they can use technology as a positive influence for God.

On [date], we’ll be shooting a short video inviting viewers to [personalize video content here: attend church, participate in an outreach event, discover more about Jesus, etc.]. We will post the video on [Facebook, Twitter, church website, etc.].

To honor your personal security preferences, would you indicate your permission to participate below? We’d love to share with you, as well, if you will provide your email address or social media username.

________________________ has permission to appear in the [GA/RA/CA] video.

________________________ should not appear in the [GA/RA/CA] video. Please allow him/her to be involved behind the scenes only.

Your email or preferred social media venue: ________________________________
