SEVEN MILE STORY
THE ENTIRE BIBLE.
1 BOOK. 1 STORY.
"A GIFTED STORYTELLER. HE BLEW US AWAY WITH HIS ABILITY TO BRING THE BIBLE TO LIFE."
SEVEN MILE STORY; AN EVENING WHERE AUTHOR/SPEAKER/STORYTELLER, ROSS BREITKREUZ, TAKES LISTENERS THROUGH THE BIBLE FROM "IN THE BEGINNING" TO "IT IS FINISHED." A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE UNBROKEN NARRATIVE OF SCRIPTURE.
BIBLE LITERACY MAY BE DECLINING, BUT PEOPLE REMAIN CURIOUS. THROUGH STORYTELLING, WE CAN SHARE THE BIBLE WITH ANYONE, IN A POWERFUL, FAMILIAR, AND ENGAGING WAY. FOR CENTURIES, STORYTELLING HAS BEEN USED TO BRIDGE CULTURES, AND COMMUNICATE ACROSS GENERATIONS, LIKE A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE.
SEVEN MILE STORY HAS BEEN LOVED BY AUDIENCES OF ALL AGES, FROM 10-95. LISTENERS ARE CONTINUALLY RESPONDING TO GODS STORY IN POWERFUL WAYS.
THIS EVENT IS THE A-B-C'S & 1-2-3'S OF THE BIBLE. AN ENGAGING WAY FOR PEOPLE TO GAIN A FOUNDATIONAL OVERVIEW OF THE BIBLE AND ITS LARGER NARRATIVE.
MAKING MUCH OF GODS WORD IS THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE, BUT NOT THE ONLY GOAL. SEVEN MILE STORY SEEKS TO SERVE THE CHURCH BY COMPLIMENTING THE MINISTRY AND MISSION OF THOSE WE PARTNER WITH. WE WANT TO SUPPLEMENT THE WORK EACH CHURCH IS ALREADY DOING IN THEIR COMMUNITY BY HELPING DIRECT AUDIENCES TO YOUR COMMUNITY.
IF IMPROVING BIBLE LITERACY IS ONE OF YOUR GOALS, WE'D LOVE TO PARTER WITH YOU IN PURSUING THIS THROUGH AN EVENING THAT WILL POINT LISTENERS TO GODS WORD, LEAVE THEM HUNGRY FOR MORE, AND INVITE TO JOIN YOU ON A REGULAR BASIS, SO YOU CAN TAKE THEM DEEPER INTO THIS LIFE CHANGING (AND LIFE GIVING) STORY.
"I HAVE MANY MENTORS & INSPIRATIONS IN MY LIFE AND THEY ALL HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON; THEY ARE STUDENTS OF GODS WORD, SEEKING TO UNDERSTAND IT, APPLY IT, AND SHARE IT. ROSS IS THAT KIND OF PERSON. HE CREATED SEVEN MILE STORY AS A GREAT EVENT THAT ENGAGES LISTENERS IN THE BIBLICAL NARRATIVE...ROSS IS PASSIONATE, FUN, AND BEST OF ALL, HE WILL SEND YOU HOME MORE COMMITTED TO GODS WORD THAN EVER."
