Easter Offering 2013 – The Continuing Adventures of Pastor Max and Church

For over 20 years Baptist churches across Australia have been taking up an offering each Easter to support the work of Crossover. This year’s video continues to follow the adventures of Pastor Max and his congregation as they keep on stepping outside of their comfort zone, guided by Crossover resourcing. Apart from being a fun way of informing people of the work of Crossover the video contains some great ideas and inspiration for churches looking to expand their missional footprint. A pack containing a DVD and Easter Offering brochures is being sent in early March. You can choose to play the video in church straight from Vimeo or download it. Churches can also share this video via e-mail and social media and link on church websites. Watch the video here or below: . (more…)
