Mikeel Arana on a Mission

Design: Wong Ee Yuing


Mikeel Arana is our first year Master of Arts in Christian Ministry student from the Philippines. He has been enrolled since last July but due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation around the region, he has been studying online. He was recently featured in a video sharing about using his multimedia skills for the Lord.

“I started my graphic design and video editing journey at church. I still remember the first youth event poster I made with PowerPoint and the first PAW Fest video made with Windows Movie Maker. Haha! Never did I imagine that I’d get to do what I do now—making graphics and videos for churches, ministries, and brands. God has given me these gifts and I want to serve Him with the gifts He has given me. Moreover, He’s given me the gift of life so now I live my life for Him.” – Mikeel Arana
