“African Christianity Rising” screenings/discussions to help build world church

Flier for a screening/discussion

FLIER FOR A SCREENING/DISCUSSION

Local churches are beginning to use our African Christianity Rising documentary film series to open up conversations between diverse branches of the church here in North America to build relationships of mutual understanding, respect and trust, in order to help build a truly international world church for the 21st century.  In this case, after a brief Q&A following the screening of Stories from Ghana–to air issues, questions and concerns the film raises–the audience will break-up into small, ethnically diverse discussion groups, to share their experiences and responses to the film.

Efforts will be made to reach out to the many African, Asian, African-American, Latino and Latin American churches within an hour’s drive of the venue.

If you are interested in hosting and organizing such an event, please let us know.
