HPU Alumnus Works On Jesus Film Project In Central Asia


HIGH POINT, N.C., June 12, 2009 – Karl Hengeveld, a 2005 graduate of High Point University, has been busy since graduation thanks to a special project that has taken him to Central Asia.
Hengeveld, who majored in computer information systems, is working with the JESUS Film Project, which is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ – an organization with which he was involved during his time at HPU.
“The goal of the JESUS Film Project is to translate the film into about 5,000 languages,” Hengeveld says. “We recently finished our 1,000th translation. My job with the JESUS Film is to record and dub new voices for new translations. When our script is successfully translated, someone from my team is sent to where the language is spoken to record the voices.”
Hengeveld’s role includes transporting the recording equipment and making the recordings. He says his job is very technical in nature, making his CIS background very helpful.
