What is Judgement House?
Judgement House is a walk-through drama that presents the truth of people's choices versus the consequences of those decisions both in this life and the next.
No other tool is more effective at presenting the gospel and giving individuals the opportunity to choose a personal and saving relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, Judgement House continues to have an amazing impact on the church body or ministry that holds a presentation of their own. Our Covenant Partners annually report that aside from SEEING PEOPLE ACCEPT CHRIST, the Judgement House presentation:
*UNIFIES THEIR PEOPLE
*REFOCUSES THEIR OUTREACH MINISTRY
*ENRICHES THE SPIRITUAL LIVES OF ALL INVOLVED
*CREATES AND SUSTAINS A PRAYING CHURCH
Your Judgement House presentation will become the "agent of change" in your surrounding area. After seeing entire communities move from guilt to grace; from sin to salvation; and from death to life, only one question remains. Does your heart break for the people around you? If so, we can help.
The Judgement House Experience:
Your presentation can be held in a wide variety of locations ranging from churches to schools. The walk-through drama takes place throughout a series of rooms or scenes. With each room, a unique yet tragic story will unfold. Although the scripts vary content, setting, and characters, all of our scripts force the viewer to answer one important question. "Will you ACCEPT or REJECT God's offer of a saving and personal relationship through His Son Jesus Christ?"
Throughout the first 6-7 scenes several main characters will have the opportunity to share, accept or reject Christ. After making their decision, a horrific yet common tragedy will occur, catapulting them, along with the audience, into Judgement. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27 that "It is appointed for men to die once and after this comes the Judgment." Here, the characters and audience are faced with the condemnation of their unpardoned sin. Some receive eternal life through the blood of Christ, while others are left to pay the penalty of their sin ALONE in Hell.
The viewer then finds himself outside the gates of Hell. Reality has set in and hope has fled for the characters that chose to reject God's Son. They are addressed and reassured by the character of Satan that they now belong to him. Peering through the abyss, the audience gets an extremely visual as well as physical reminder that Jesus has offered them a way out of this future torment. Upon leaving hell, one thing is clear. Rejecting Jesus = Choosing Satan.
Following Hell, the audience is ushered through the gates of Heaven in to the very presence of Jesus. Each member of the tour will have a sobering encounter with their Lord and Savior as He looks into their eyes and welcomes them home. In this scene the viewer witnesses what has happened to the characters that placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The overwhelming presence of God is often too much to handle as grown men and women burst into tears at the thought of this glorious "homecoming".
The final portion of the presentation gives an overview of the story and provides the individual viewers with the opportunity to accept Christ as their Savior. Those who made decisions or would like to ask questions are then given the chance to speak with a one-on-one encourager to help drive home the commitment that was just made. The Judgement House presentation takes approximately 1 hour to complete. With new groups launching every 10 to 15 minutes, an average of 75 people can tour the presentation per hour.
