About Ashley, Founder & Filmmaker at Missionary Films, LLC.
W. Ashley Maddox is a missionary filmmaker who has dedicated his career to sharing the stories of what God is doing all over the world.
In 2010, Ashley made a film about missionaries on the field in the Philippines for his church. Witnessing the impact of the video, he found the purpose he had been searching for. In 2011, he founded Missionary Films and has since made thousands of ministry videos, working with hundreds of ministries and missionaries, and traveling to over 25 countries to create films that share the greatest story on earth.
Today, Ashley continues to make videos for ministries while also mentoring others to follow Jesus and have a mission of making films. Ashley’s passion for ministry and storytelling has led him to become an award-winning filmmaker, author, and industry leader.
One of Ashley’s proudest accomplishments is a video campaign he created for Village Missions. The project involved making 14 videos and visiting seven different churches across the United States. He also consults with Young Life, the largest youth ministry in the world, to make films about their U.S. and international impact. Additionally, he has helped a fitness ministry, Revelation Wellness, create content to spread the Gospel in the wellness space, creating 1000’s of videos since 2016 with millions of views across all platforms.
Ashley’s experiences as a filmmaker and missionary have shaped his worldview and approach to storytelling. He has traveled to over 30 countries, filming and documenting what God is doing. He is in awe of missionaries and mission workers and the incredible work they do in some of the hardest places in the world. Ashley’s dedication to spreading the Gospel through video is an inspiration to many, and his work has had a profound impact on the lives of countless individuals and communities.
