This Good Friday, April 18, David Platt will spend 6 hours leading people in studying God’s Word in an annual gathering called Secret Church (inspired by his time with the underground church). This year’s topic, “The Cross and Everyday Life,” will cover a wide range of activities and issues that affect our everyday routines, asking how the gospel impacts it all. For example, how does Christ’s death and resurrection change the way we date? What role does the gospel play in our jobs? Does the good news of Jesus change our view of sports? Social media? As believers, we’ll be challenged to better follow Christ and to better point others to him. And for unbelievers, the gospel will be clearly explained.
You’re probably already thinking about the many reasons you have to participate, but you may not know how. We can help you there…
Secret Church 14 will take place in Birmingham, AL, but thanks to modern technology, that’s not the only location you’ll be able to join in. With a computer and a good internet connection, you can host a simulcast from anywhere in the world!
- You can host as a church along with all these host churches (which you could potentially join if you live nearby).
- You can host as a small group. Registering as a small group between now and April 4th makes you eligible for a 5-piece giveaway.
- You can apply to participate in the simulcast for FREE if you are serving as a missionary overseas. MORE INFO…
If you choose option one or two, there is a small cost (it comes out to about $10/person), but this includes a nearly 200 page study guide to help you follow along that night and refer to it all later on. To join in live, you’ll need to begin at 6pm Central on Good Friday. However, if that poses a problem for you, you can delay, pause, and rewind the simulcast just like you would a DVR. Additionally, you’ll be able to watch for 30 days following April 18.
And if you can’t participate in this Secret Church simulcast, you’ll always be able to access the teaching portion of the night (though the prayer and worship will be cut out) FREE OF CHARGE when it is posted on Radical’s website with all the other past Secret Church topics. May of these studies will serve you as a great tool as you make disciples, since they cover key elements of our Christian faith.
