Wednesdays this November at 6:30pm in the Worship Arts Center
To help us better connect with the impact of some of our local and global outreach partners, we are screening three documentary films about freedom, healthcare, and education. Festival attendees will also get the chance to discuss the documentaries with local and global ministry partners working in those fields.
November 2nd: Free Burma Rangers with the Eubanks
Witness the journey of Dave and Karen Eubank, missionaries on the front lines of the conflicts in Burma, Syria, and Iraq. The Eubanks are expected to join viewers via Zoom for an update on their family’s outreach in current war zones.
November 9th: Mercy Ships | The Next Chapter with the Schwinds
The film provides a tour of their newest ship, the Global Mercy, the world’s largest floating teaching hospital. The film covers the mission of the ship and its volunteer staff and crew to provide life-saving healthcare free of charge. Our partner, Steve Schwind, an international hospital chaplain with Mercy Ships, will speak with us via Zoom for discussion.
November 16th: Can We All Get Along? with Harambee, Stars, and the filmmaker
The documentary explores the complex history of Pasadena’s schools and the 1970 court order that created the first Federal desegregation plan outside of the South and reflects on its lasting impacts. The filmmaker, Pablo Miralles, will join us in-person with a panel of guests from our local ministry partners, Harambee and Stars, who currently serve students at several schools in the Pasadena Unified School District.
Together, we hope to better understand the link of this history to the current opportunities in the ministries of our outreach partners.
In our mission to “Be and make disciples of Jesus Christ,” the 2022 Outreach Film Festival invites us to consider how the needs for freedom, healthcare, and education and the work of our outreach partners to meet these needs in the name of Jesus might challenge and inspire us to live out our faith with boldness and compassion.
