How to Get a Front Row Seat at Secret ChurchBy Radical
Due to it’s unprecedented popularity it quickly outgrew the seating capacity at The Church at Brook Hills. After the first few Secret Church sessions a ticketing system was put in place to reserve seats for those who wanted to attend and to help defray the cost of the study guide. (A 100+ page, fill-in-the blank guide to use throughout the evening.) For the last several years tickets have sold out in record time – a matter of minutes!
Today was no exception. Tickets for Secret Church 12 on Good Friday, April 6 – “The Cross and Suffering” – sold out in approximately 3 minutes.
Interest in Secret Church has grown exponentially over the last few years. More and more people began to inquire if there was any way Secret Church could be made available so that those who wanted to be a part of that night could attend.
In April of 2011, with the help of LifeWay Christian Resources, Secret Church became available through simulcast for the first time. The simulcast enabled any one with a computer and an internet connection to join those in attendance at Brook Hills. At each of the simulcasts last year there were almost 50,000 participants from all over the world!
With the simulcast option you can now have a front row seat, right in your very own living room! If you would like to be a part of Secret Church 12 we hope that you will consider this option and join us on Good Friday, April 6.
