Dear VBC Family –

 

This Sunday we welcome Mr. Michael Suderman from RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries)  to VBC !

Michael Suderman is an Itinerant Speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and is based in Washington, DC. He graduated from Tabor College in Kansas with a double major in Philosophy and Biblical & Religious Studies, and a minor in Psychology. He recently completed a Masters of Theology at the University of Oxford alongside two years of study at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.

Michael has interests in topics related to faith and science, world religions, and the intersection of Christianity and culture. His passion is to help facilitate the discovery and rediscovery of Jesus by communicating and clarifying the gospel as the most profound solution to life’s most meaningful questions. Prior to studying in Oxford, Michael was involved with youth and university ministries and participated in educational and volunteer work throughout India.

Mr. Suderman will bring the Message during our 10:30am Worship Service, and then return at 7:00pm with a talk on Countering Biblical Unbelief.  You will no doubt be ENCOURAGED, CHALLENGED, and STRENGTHENED in your Faith through the ministry of RZIM.  Tickets will be available for FREE at the Sunday Worship Service.  (A free-will offering will taken at the evening presentation.)

****  This week we will be taking a FRIEND IN NEED Special Offering in addition to our regular offering.  The Friend In Need fund is for those in the midst of crisis that are in need of a special financial Blessing.  We hope you will come prepared to “Love others” in this way.
