#1 New York Times Best-Selling Author Dr. David Jeremiah to Share Message From His Latest Book, What Are You Afraid Of?, At Arenas in Greenville, SC and Austin, Texas
LAKESIDE, Calif.—February 4, 2014—Dr. David Jeremiah, one of America’s most trusted Bible teachers, will appear live and in-person at two arenas this spring. After a powerful time of worship led by Christian recording artists Marshall Hall and pianist Gordon Mote, Dr. Jeremiah will share a message from his new book, What Are You Afraid Of?, which released on October 3, 2013.
An Evening With David Jeremiah will visit the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C., on Feb. 20 and the Cedar Park Center in Austin, Texas on April 24. Both of the events are completely free and open to the public.
Face it: Everyone is afraid of something. Fear is the great equalizer and respecter of no one. But do you know the single most-often repeated command in the Bible? It’s “Fear not!” The good news is that God not only commands us not to fear, but He enables us to face down our fears through faith in His Word. So stand your ground and take up your shield of faith. It’s time to live fearlessly.
“I wrote What Are You Afraid Of? because I heard people say things I had never heard before—like, ‘I wonder if it’s safe even to go to church. I wonder if it’s safe to put my children in school. I wonder if it’s safe to eat in a public place. I wonder if it’s safe to shop in a mall,’” said Dr. David Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church and founder of Turning Point, one of the world’s largest syndicated Bible teaching ministries. “It’s a present problem, and obviously the Bible has a lot to say about it. I wanted to try to answer some of those questions from the Scripture.”
The purpose of the An Evening With David Jeremiah rally is not only for those who faithfully tune in to hear Dr. Jeremiah’s messages on Turning Point each week to see and experience him in person, but to provide an opportunity for those who don’t know Dr. Jeremiah, a #1 New York Times best-selling author, to experience his inimitable presentation style, which is unequivocal and equal parts reassuring and no-holds barred.
“I know people who have fears that are represented by every chapter in this book,” Dr. Jeremiah said. “When you love people and you have compassion for them, they tell you what their issues are, you want to say, ‘Let me pray with you. Let me love you. Let me help you, and let me give you something that I think might be an encouragement to you.’ I see people using this book as a way to express their love to their family or friends who are experiencing the fears that are listed in this book, and that’s my great hope—that God will use this book to bring healing and help and hope to the people who read it. And, ultimately, if a person doesn’t know the God about whom I brag all throughout this book, they’ll be led to know Him, who is the only One we really should ever fear.”
The An Evening with David Jeremiah rally is completely free. Attendees will be encouraged and enlivened by Christ-centered worship from Marshall Hall, worship leader at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, CA, pianist Gordon Mote, and powerful teaching by Dr. Jeremiah. An Evening with David Jeremiah is a terrific opportunity for fellowship and to invite friends and family who might not have heard or considered the Gospel. After this fun and edifying evening, they will understand the importance of accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
