Dr. Steve will play a double header in Peoria and Springfield!
Dr. Stephen W. Simpson is building quite a fan base in Illinois, having been the featured expert on Cache' Connections DVD titled "Christian Dating Redefined." This DVD was filmed in Peoria last fall, and Dr. Steve couldn't resist the invitation to return back to our fair city for the Cache' Connections Christian Dating Redefined Conference and Expo, which will be held on Friday, May 20th at Northminster Presbyterian Church on N. Knoxville in Peoria, IL.
But in true Cache' fashion, we decided to make full use of his time and travel across the country, so we planned a piggy-back event of the same name to take place the following night, which is Saturday, May 21st at the U of I - Springfield campus. Three of the larger churches in Springfield, namely, West Side Christian Church, IWorship and Calvary Temple are happy to promote the event, as well as several other churches in both Peoria, Springfield and the surrounding areas.
Central Illinois singles, whether currently dating or not, are in for a treat! Dr. Simpson is an author, speaker, psychologist and Director of Clinical Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. In coming together with Dr. Steve for the DVD project, we all agreed that we need a new model for dating - one that includes being intentional and authentic and built on biblical principles. What exactly does that mean? Come out and hear for yourself! You will also have an opportunity to purchase the Christian Dating Redefined DVD at a reduced price at the upcoming Expo events. CLICK HERE for information on the DVD.
There are a few different ways that the Cache' Connections Expo is structured, depending on the hosting church and the desires of the singles in the area. Some will feature a showing of the DVD or will actually feature Dr. Steve in person, while others will simply show the popular trailer of the DVD to give a preview. Either way, the Expos are a very fun and popular event. It's a casual atmosphere, where guests are free to stroll from vendor booth to booth, participating in the games and challenges, tasting free food samples and vying for the many door prizes. Guests really seem to enjoy the structure-less opportunity to meet other singles in the area. Sometime around 8:15 pm, Cache' Connections will encourage guests to gather together for the viewing of the DVD or for the stage presentation. Afterwards, there will be a last chance to visit the many vendor booths and put your name in for the drawings. Then, at about 9:30 pm, all prizes will be announced.
Help us spread the word! Please talk to your friends and church leaders about this event, and send the link to this blog to your email buddies. Let us know if you can use some fliers. The more, the merrier! Let's show Dr. Steve that Peoria knows how to play!
