The Voice of Prophecy has specifically designed Shadow Empire to bring people from your community through the doors of your church.

Bridge Events Are...
Short-run EventsThese two-to-five-night events address a felt need in your community and introduce people to your church without the barriers that are often associated with longer series evangelism.
PersonalizedAt SermonView, we design with you in mind. So every one of our bridge events are personalized to meet your unique needs and put your church front and center of your community.
SermonView Bridge Events encourage a lasting spirit of evangelism and growth in your members, as guests to your bridge events are more likely to also attend annual reaping series.
Your community's felt needs are constantly changing with the times, so SermonView Bridge Events change with them. These powerful resources target felt needs in your community, year-round.

What is it?
Shadow Empire has been specifically designed to bring people from your community through the doors of your church. This project helps to fill one of the deepest needs we all have: this deep need to share Jesus, to find some way to introduce people to our church—some method, some event—that isn’t awkward or uncomfortable.
That’s the reason for Shadow Empire. What we’re going to do is take something really interesting—something most of the world is talking about anyway—and we’re going to showcase it from a user-friendly, Adventist point of view.
Shadow Empire is a four-part seed-sowing experience. We’re designing this for the history buff in your life, and for the people you know who might be interested in Bible prophecy. We’re making it for your friends and neighbors who have this nagging feeling that maybe something went wrong within the religion of Jesus at a time in the distant past. We want to help you invite those people into your church. This a powerful and interesting way to encourage your friends to visit your congregation and just get to know you.
“Shadow Empire is a live, four-part, seed-sowing experience specifically designed to bring people to your church. For bridge events like this one, we're going to put you in the driver's seat. That's right, you are going to become a Voice of Prophecy speaker! After all, your community needs to meet you, so it’s your ministry that will be featured, and your voice that will be heard.”
Why use this Bridge Event?
It’s as easy as it gets. We’ve created the videos and provide all of the event resources. All you have to do is have someone to play the video and continue the discussion with your attendees. That means if you have multiple churches, it’s easy enough to have a head elder or a lay person facilitate the meeting on your behalf.
It introduces people to Adventist beliefs. Shadow Empire looks at a fascinating and pivotal time in history and uncovers the way we think about religious freedom—and what it means for our lives today. This bridge event is designed for the history buffs in your community, and for the people who might be interested in Bible prophecy.
Recommended Follow-up Series
A Pale Horse Rides
People are eyeing the Christian church with suspicion and some even feel betrayed by the news they hear about religion throughout the world. Are their fears justified? A Pale Horse Rides addresses the uneasy feeling that people have when it comes to organized religion. It affirms that something did go wrong at the dawn of Christianity, and that the Bible predicted it all.
