My Story

Me and Robert

Me and Robert, an orphan at Shepherd’s Field Children’s Village in Tianjin, China

I am Joshua Kaufmann. A videographer and cultural nomad. I am passionate about people and other cultures. My goal is to use my passions and talents to tell important stories in order to move people to positive action in their communities and around the world.

I work as a freelance videographer and as the Media Director for the missions agency Mandate.

Currently, I am working on two projects: (1) to make videos sharing what God is doing through His people around the world and (2) to crete a YouTube series about cultures around the world and the local Christians in each culture. The series’ primary goals will be to help The Church better interact with and minister to people from different cultures—whether in their home community, nationally, or abroad.

I grew up involved in ministry with my whole family. My father is the pastor of Risen Christ Lutheran Church in Plymouth, MI. I have a pretty big family with 3 brothers, my one sister, and my parents.
