How to Present An Epic Story
Our research shows that movies are more influential than sermons in affecting people's lives.—The Barna Group
This film series was born out of a desire to share inspiring true stories about how God is working through Trans World Radio to change lives. It’s our hope that these films encourage people’s faith and move their hearts to help make an epic difference through prayer, financial support, or giving their time and talents. We know God uses those who are willing.
If you’re reading this, odds are, you’re one of those willing to help. It’s an honor to partner with you in encouraging and inspiring others. Here are a few tips to consider when presenting these Epic Stories to a group:
Pray and prepare. Before you present, ask God to give you the right words to say, and to use the film to bless others by raising awareness, prayer support, and even finances for TWR’s ministry and those TWR ministers to. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to learn a bit about TWR to prepare yourself for answering any basic questions about the ministry. Feel free to contact us as well!
Introduce the film. The “Overview” sections of each Epic Story (located just below the video player) are your best resource for a good summary of the film and its background.
Make an appeal. You’ll notice that we don’t end the films by asking for financial help. That’s because we want you to do that personally. God’s clearly given you a passion—whether it’s for hurting women, prisoners, persecuted Christians, the unreached, or simply media ministry—and no one is better equipped to excite that same passion in others than you are.
If you’re watching or presenting the Epic Story from Central & Eastern Europe—Reaching the Roma, click here for additional downloadable resources as well as ideas for hosting an “Epic Evening” event in your home. We’ve already made the invitations for you.
Above all, we believe in a God who answers prayer. May you and your group—no matter how large or small—be stirred to pray for each need He brings to mind when you see and hear these stories.
