On Superbowl Sunday, Crossroads Church is having a preaching competition titled “Mingo vs. Tome”. They’re being incredibly honest about the event. They’re admitting it’s an irreverent, schticky thing meant to turn church into a spectator sport.
Like any megachurch gimmick they have created a promotional video.
Also, the obligatory promotional photos.
In 2016 they had a halftime show.
Church as a non-boring, irreverent, schticky spectator sport. Should this really surprise us from a church using a disposable coffee cup as their main brand image? I mean instead of something like a bible or cross?
