Insanity of God Weekend
Nik Ripken is the world’s leading expert on the persecuted church in Muslim contexts. He is a missions veteran of 36 years, having served primarily in North Africa and the Middle East. He is the author of The Insanity of God, The Insanity of Obedience and The Insanity of Sacrifice. He and his wife have conducted extensive research in approximately 72 countries with believers in persecution including how they view suffering through a Biblical lens. Join us February 11-12 as we learn from Nik + Ruth what it means to go on mission.
As part of our upcoming Insanity of God weekend, we are asking you to join us on Sunday, January 29th at 4:30 PM for the film, “The Insanity of God.”
This movie is based on the book; “Insanity of God” is a true story of missionaries Nik & Ruth Ripken. After the death of their son, this ordinary couple journeys into the depths of the persecuted church, asking the questions – Is Jesus Worth It?
How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair, and hopelessness? Join us and the Ripken’s as they tell the story of being taught by believers around the world who face daily persecution. They learn, “how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus and how to walk with Him day by day even when it doesn’t make sense.”
