An Inspirational Evening the Week After Easter

Saturday, April 11th, 2015. 7pm
Scholastic Auditorium, 557 Broadway, New York City


In celebration of the Easter season and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christian Union will present spokenWord2015, the Ivy League Bible Memorization Challenge Finale. This unique event will be held Saturday, April 11 (the week after Easter) at the Scholastic Auditorium in New York City, at 7:00 pm (see map below). The public is invited to attend.

Ticket information will be posted here soon.

This evening will feature unforgettable presentations by students who will creatively bring God’s Word to life, making the Word of God even more real to everyone who attends.

The spokenWord2015 Challenge is designed to encourage Ivy League students, guests who attend the Finale, and all who will watch the presentations online, to discover the value and beauty of memorizing God's Word. Students—or teams of up to four students—who enter the contest and are selected as finalists will present, in a creative spoken word format, from memory, a Biblical text from one particular passage or from a range of passages in the Old and/or New Testaments.

The presentations will be judged, and a winner selected, at the conclusion of the evening. As the judges deliberate, guests will enjoy uplifting music.
