On behalf of the Mission America Coalition, we want to invite you to consider the fantastic ministry opportunity presented by the release of the live-action movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, in theaters nationwide on Friday, December 9, 2005.
In up to 150 of our top cities in America we are working to convene church leaders interested in collaborative outreach for what we are calling "Narnia Sneak Peeks". We are inviting you to serve with us as the host convener in your city for a 90 minute gathering in either September or October 2005.
At the Narnia Sneak Peek events, pastors, youth ministers/workers, children's ministers, denominational leaders, para-ministry leaders and Christian educators will come together in your area to "peek" at some of the movie, learn about some of the great outreach/evangelism opportunities and receive a variety of free materials. (Visit: www.narniaresources.com for some basic details of available resources.)
Millions of people around the world have enjoyed C.S. Lewis' seven book series. Now Walden Media and Walt Disney Pictures are releasing the first book in the series as a live-action film. They have engaged Weta, the same computer animators who were engaged in the film production of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
If you are interested in hosting a Narnia Sneak Peek event in your area:
Join with other city leaders on one of three national conference calls later this month to get more details and some special web site privileges. The dates and times are:
Tuesday, July 26th at 9:00 a.m. (central time)
Thursday, July 28th at 3:00 p.m. (central time)
Friday, July 29th at 1:00 p.m. (central time)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for one of these calls and indicate your interest. You will be sent the conference call number and code once you RSVP.
Should you become a convener for this event, we would rely on you to determine the location, date and time for this leadership event in your city. Material would be shipped to that location to be distributed to all those attending. To complete an application for host convener visit: www.missionamerica.gospelcom.net/narnia/narnia_app.htm
We hope the Lord will allow you to co-labor with us in this ministry effort. We plan to call you in the next several days to follow up, if we do not hear from you before then.
