About Bring to Mind

What sense does faith make in our rapidly changing culture? Bring to Mind is a welcoming place for those who are curious and thoughtful about faith, hungry to meet people who push them to think deeply, perhaps differently and always interestingly.

Meet fellow travelers who live their faith in places like universities, a restaurant workplace, on a movie set or even in their present grief. These eclectic conversations stimulate us to think beyond everyday boundaries, grow our personal worlds, and engage with those who are thinking and living their faith in a unique way. As we listen to their stories, we are invited to bring to mind Jesus' invitation to love God with all your heart, soul and mind.

David MacKay | Assistant Producer
David is a rugged creative constantly listening and growing as he tells stories of God and His creation in unique and beautiful ways through sound. He grew up on the sunny isles of the Philippines where he learned to love the sounds all around him from the wind in the trees to the surf lapping against the shore. You can usually find him reading a good book, listening to indie music, tramping around art galleries, or simply drinking a cup of coffee with a friend.
