The Insanity of God

Friday Afternoon 2:15 pm – 3:45 pm | Sanctuary (110 min.)
Watch the YouTube video

The Insanity of God is the true story of missionaries Nik and Ruth Ripken. After the death of their son, this ordinary couple journeys into the depths of the persecuted church, asking the question— IS JESUS WORTH IT?

How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are over come with the darkness of sin, despair and hopelessness? Join the Ripkens as they tell the story of being taught by believers in persecution ”how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus, and how to walk with Him day by day even when it doesn’t make sense.” The film is based on the best-selling book Insanity of God (BH Publishing) and is released in association with the International Mission Board (IMB).
