MEET SAM CHILDERS “THE MACHINE GUN PREACHER”
SUNDAY 10 SEPTEMBER • 9AM SERVICE & 6PM SERVICE
CHRISTIAN OUTREACH CHURCH (513 HUME ST, TOOWOOMBA)
Join us at Christian Outreach Church as we welcome special guest Sam Childers – Machine Gun Preacher, to share his incredible story.
Ex-drug dealer armed guard, Sam Childers brings a story of faith and endurance in the midst of a dark world. Sam travelled to Southern Sudan and Uganda, countries in the middle of civil wars, to set up an orphanage. During the day, Sam was building the huts that would house the children; during the evening, he was sleeping under a mosquito netslung from a tree: bible in one hand, AK47 in the other. Sam began to lead armed missions to rescue children from rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army. It wasn’t long before tales of his exploits spread and villagers began to call him “The Machine Gun Preacher.”
Sam Childers will speak at both our 9AM and 6PM services. For more information about our church services click here.
