VFTB 141: 21st Century Mars Hill

poltergeistPEOPLE REJECT the Gospel of Jesus Christ when it fails to explain what they see in the world around them.  For some, it’s bad things happening to good people; for others, it’s the perceived rationality of science; for many, especially the young, it’s the lure of video games, movies, and popular music.  Churches need to address the disconnect between the Bible and the “real world”.

Doug Overmyer, Director of Student Ministries for the Charleston, Illinois campus of the Vineyard Church in Urbana, Illinois, is reaching out to youth at area schools, including Eastern Illinois University, with Supernatural Movie Night.

First up: The Chris White film Ancient Aliens Debunked, featuring Dr. Michael Heiser, at 6:00PM on Thursday, March 28th.  (Click here for a map to the church.)

How will those young adults respond?  How will other area churches react?  This outreach is in the Bunker’s backyard, so we’ll follow up and let you know.

Derek and Sharon Gilbert will join Doug HampRuss and Shelly DizdarL.A. Marzulli, Doug Woodward, Rob Skiba, and Tom Dunn of  Project Josiah at Chicago Summit #3.  Details online here.

If you plan to stay overnight at Chicago Summit #3, make reservations at the Wyndham Lisle Hotel and let them know you’re with the Chicago Summit conference for a discount.

We will also be at the Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit July 26-28, 2013 (note: now sold out) with Gary Stearman, Tom Horn, Chuck Missler, L.A. Marzulli, Joseph Farah, Dr. Stan Monteith, Cris Putnam, and many more.  Get information here.

  1. Love what Doug’s doing, and what he’s teaching those kids! Wish more churches/youth ministries were willing to go there.

  2. This is a great idea. More of us should do it… and more often!

    I once showed a documentary about aliens at a local university here in Taiwan. Eventually, the questions turned to belief in God. Taiwanese university students seemed surprised to hear anybody actually still believes in God. I was given an opportunity to share a bit of the evidence which points to Him. Long story short, these events open up this sort of dialog naturally.

    Keep it up!
