Details: A live event for adults and young adults, “Restored” gives the audience a look at three different perspectives of how we view faith. The intended audience will be parishioners or visitors who do not normally attend church events. Utilizing video screens and three separate areas of the stage, presenter, Greg Wasinski, gives insight on Church teaching, Stories of Faith, and Personal Testimony. By sharing a connection with each person no matter where they are on their faith journey, Greg opens the door for them to make necessary changes in their own lives while inspiring them to be what their family needs. In addition to the live presentation, attendees have access to an App or web-based library which gives them notes for the night, exclusive video content and links to continue to grow long after it’s over.
