Hi! My name is Joseph Adorno, and I'm the founder of Panem Project alongside my beautiful wife Natalia Sepulveda. The story of our business started in the summer of 2016 when Natalia and I went on our first short term mission trip together.
As we prepared and traveled to Santo Domingo, I imagined the people we would meet, the work we would do, and the impact we might have. By the end of the trip, however, I realized that a large part of the impact occurred inside of us. Ministering to others and being in another culture changed our perspective and perception of the world. The experience changed my life, and I realized my calling was in evangelism and teaching the Word of God - in missions somehow.
That calling lead me to become a Youth Pastor at my local church and to the development of Panem Project. In Santo Domingo, it became clear to me that many missionaries around the world are in need themselves. There was one day in particular where there wasn't enough food for everyone to eat a warm meal. The organizations many missionaries are a part of typically do not provide them with income, and in order to continue the work of the Lord, they must spend part of their time fundraising.
The purpose of Panem Project is to alleviate the financial stress of long term missionaries by contributing financially to their ministry. We hope that our vision can help missionaries continue to know Christ and make Him known while helping people in need and serving communities.
We strive to fulfill this mission through Photography and Videography Services, YouTube Content Creation, and Faith Based Apparel. Every purchase helps raise money for missions, and 100% of donations go to helping people in need.
