What is the program?
This year, we are excited to feature a crazy stunt featuring 2022 World Champion Wakeboarder Mary Morgan Howell, as well as Olympic Snowboarder Andy Finch, with an appearance by wakeskater Matt Manzari. Be sure to watch our Word of Life Social Media pages the week before the event, as we will be releasing more details about this extreme sports segment.
Right in the middle of the broadcast, we will break from the action, and Tommy Sewall (the Director of Word of Life’s New York Youth and Teen Camps) will share a short gospel message as well as give students a chance to respond via text. More information on the gospel message can be found in the FAQ section below.
FAQs (answered by Tommy Sewall)
Is this just a big commercial for WOL?
I have had some questions wondering how strongly Word of Life is going to be advertised during this event, and I certainly understand this concern. When I see an event like this being put on by a ministry, I assume there is going to be a hefty sales pitch or at least some steady advertising throughout the event. This, however, is not the case for the Alternative Halftime Show. A generous friend of Word of Life helps make this event possible, so we don’t do any marketing during the actual show. Some of our promo videos will play during the countdown and after the show is over, but nothing during the actual event. We do follow up with those who enter the giveaways with promotional emails, but entering in the drawing is not required for participation in the event.
