Teens Fleeing Church Find Faith at the Movies SURGE takes the message of Jesus to teens at 500 theaters nationwide, Oct. 9 & 16

In a phenomena dubbed "the rise of the nones," more young people than ever are ditching the faith of their forebears.  This statistic is troubling to youth pastors like Ron Luce, founder of Teen Mania Ministries, which has produced creative ways to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with teens for 27 years.
Tonight, Oct. 9, Teen Mania will present SURGE at more than 500 theaters nationwide. It's a movie "event" -- a hip-hop/rock concert that blends comedy, an inspirational message, and a chance to interact with hundreds of thousands of other teens through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram while the movie is playing.  "We are bringing the life-changing message of Jesus to teens in a language they understand, in a place where they already hang out," Luce said.

The message of SURGE is that belief in Jesus is not only reasonable -- it's empowering.  "We're helping teens face their biggest fears -- things like depression, peer pressure, rejection, instability -- with the hope that Jesus gives. We're telling them, 'God created you in love, with a plan for your life. You are a part of something bigger,'" Luce said.  SURGE is in theaters two nights only: October 9 and October 16. A full list of theaters can be found here, and more information on SURGE is available at

SURGE is also on Facebook, and Twitter (@SurgeExperience). The mission of Teen Mania Ministries is to provoke a young generation to passionately pursue Jesus Christ and to take his life-giving message to the ends of the Earth. Since its founding in 1986, TMM has reached more than 2.7 million teens in the U.S., and sent teenage missionaries to more than 50 nations to share the saving message of the gospel.
