Pentecostal CU launches music video
22 Sep 16
Young members of the Pentecostal Credit Union have recorded a music video to reach out to their contemporaries.
Made with the help of Christian rapper Tneek, “GimmeDat” looks at how materialist some young people can be and encourages them to think again about how they spend their money and become ‘money wise’ instead – “because it’s wisdom, not wealth, that gets you through life successfully”.
The video was the idea of the Pentecostal Credit Union’s Youth Shadow Board. The Youth Shadow Board consists of junior members aged between 11 and 18 who make proposals and suggestions about how the credit union might improve the products and services it provides, particularly with a view to attracting more young members to join.
Pentecostal Credit Union Chief Executive Shane Bowes explained: “The board really want to hear more from our younger membership directly. We need to make sure we are developing services that our younger members really want, and that will encourage more younger people to join the credit union. We also want to be able to provide personal and citizenship development opportunities for our young members, especially if in the future they would like to volunteer for board membership.”
The Pentecostal Credit Union serves anyone who is associated with the Pentecostal Church Movement as well as Church groups and businesses, and it is the largest faith-based credit union in Britain. Having recently celebrated its 35th birthday, the credit union has grown its assets over the years to become one of the largest in the country.
A preview of the video for GimmeDat can be viewed here ahead of its full launch on 7 October.
