Why Sardius Media


Sardius offers an impressive combination of industry-leading excellence and scalable service with a true servant’s heart. Our aim is to help you get your message out as widely and effectively as possible, with tools that allow you to focus on your event instead of flipping switches. Give us a try. Sardius works!

Born out of a desire to further the global prayer movement,

Sardius offers an unparalleled understanding of the needs of ministries, coupled with technical expertise and professional standards that are second to none. Time and time again, our clients (most of whom are repeat customers) tell us how rare this combination is. We pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with large and well-known ministries such as International House of Prayer and the Jim Bakker Show. We have also worked in the government sector, streaming meetings across multiple platforms, channels and locations.

What's in a Name?

Named for a gleaming stone the Apostle John used to describe God in Heaven (see Revelation 4:3; sardius is also called carnelian), Sardius reflects our desire to honor the Lord in all that we do and shine His glory to the world. We passionately help ministries and organizations reach others with their message. Our commitment to excellence drives us to deliver results that please our clients and bring glory to our Father in Heaven.
