Christian Communications Institute (CCI)

First Presbyterian Supports Missionaries in Thailand

Missionaries Andy and Ellen Collins have worked alongside CCI since 2006, and led a similar tour to the USA in 2009. Founded nearly 40 years ago, CCI has a staff of professional performers as well as audio-visual technicians and administrative staff. CCI’s aim is to raise awareness of key social issues and to communicate the Christian message through Thai music, dance and drama. Using both traditional and modern art forms, CCI leads programs in schools and communities throughout Thailand.

First Presbyterian has promised prayers and financial support when able, to the Collins and their ministry in Thailand.
