Starting off the New Year the Arts teams at Granger were asked to package a series on salvation. We knew that the culmination of the series would be a time where people would be invited up on the stage, to physically walk across a bridge, a way of publicly expressing the personal commitment they had made to Jesus.

It was time to brainstorm—go! How would we promote and package a series with the theme of salvation while still making the weekend services appealing to new people with ties to pop culture? We ended up being drawn to the look and feel of the popular AMC TV show, The Walking Dead.

Several other churches have used the TV series for inspiration as well. We thought it was a good fit for talking about the concept of salvation—being dead and coming back to life as something new.

What in popular culture is inspiring your teams to reach people for Jesus?
