“Road Trip to Truth” 13-episode series from Producer Todd Friel
Time to stop losing youth to Secular Humanism
October 16, 2020
35 million Evangelical youth are predicted to walk away from the church by 2050. “Road Trip to Truth” is engaging series that aims to put a serious dent in that statistic.
It takes viewers on an intelligent, respectful, powerful journey across college campuses to confront the issues of Evolution, depression, the reliability of the Bible, logical fallacies, the existence of God, and truth itself. The series combines a mix of Gen Z college students, a healthy serving of experts, a dash of animation and humor, and the opportunity to see and hear live witnessing encounters, discussions of tough theological issues, and informed Christian commentary on current events—directly tackling the issues that lead so many astray.
The series is produced by Gospel Partners Media (Alpharetta, GA) and hosted by John Fabarez, a student pastor at Compass Bible Church. He isa a Bible Exposition graduate of The Master’s University and currently a M.Div student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Fabrez says,
Poll after poll reveals that 60-80 percent of Evangelical youth go to university and leave their faith behind, and statistics reveal that suicide is the number TWO cause of death among 10 to 34-year olds. It's time to equip kids, and train their parents to equip their own kids, to understand the only true source of hope and healing.
Producer Todd Friel of Wretched TV and Radio explains that far too many youth groups are trying too hard to be relevant, to the detriment of the Gospel. “Road Trip to Truth” deals with topics that are rarely discussed in youth groups, but need to be. For example, Friel explains that,
Most evangelical youth have never been presented with a thoughtful, mature and very reasonable explanation of why we hold to the Christian verities. …This series dismantles the Post-Modern worldview and then constructs the truth of the Christian worldview.
This video series focuses like a laser at youth AND their parents to winsomely address the secular humanistic ideas that are stealing, and even killing our evangelical youth.
The series is currently available for streaming on demand and on DVD. According to the producer, it will air on major television networks across the U.S. and Great Britain in January 2021. A 13-week, 100-page study guide has been published to provide youth pastors or small group leaders with thought-provoking questions and resources to guide their classes on this “Road Trip to Truth.”
