More Bible Survival Videos Wanted

As many of you know, we have launched the Bible Survival Series.  It’s still a work in progress, but we are encouraged by the responses. The objective, for those who don’t know, is to attract the upcoming generation of believers and motivate them to get into the habit of reading God’s Word daily. That’s a message for every Christian regardless of age, but it’s particularly significant for Christian youth who have little biblical discernment, primarily because their churches have majored on entertainment rather than discipleship. This is critical in view of the apostasy that is increasing exponentially within the church, as the Scriptures foretold.

As of this writing, we have produced 10 videos, all of them of a 5-minute-or-less duration. The criteria for the series is that each video must: 1) Attract an audience particularly of the next generation, 2) Be 5 minutes or less in length, 3) Have some brief biblical content with scriptural references, and, most important 4) Motivate the viewer to get into the written Word of God. Currently the Bible Survival Series is shown on YouTube, the TBC website, and TBC’s Facebook page.

Our hope is to set up a YouTube-like website where all videos that meet our criteria can be posted. To that end, we want those who love to make videos and would like to use them in the service of the Lord to send us what they have produced. We’ll set up a dropbox and review all submissions. Again, any video we post must satisfy the criteria given above and be consistent with the standards of TBC. As the program develops, we hope to offer a quarterly prize (GoPros, HD Cameras, iMovie software, etc.) for the best submission.

At one of the events where I showed samples of the Bible Survival Series, it was respectfully and gently suggested that the series might be more successful if a younger person were involved. This old dude took that as a challenge, and I’m excited to get as many young people involved as possible. So, I can’t wait to see what the upcoming generation can create for their peers.
