The 2018 Festival dates are Aug. 2-4!
[This site is currently being updated for the 2018 festival.]
Athanatos Christian Ministries is hosting its third annual Christianity and Culture Festival, Athanatos Fest, on August 2-4, 2018 in Greenwood, WI. All artistic expressions were featured: music, film, novels, drama, the visual arts, etc. In the spirit of ACM’s mission to defend the Christian faith through the arts (also called ‘apologetics’), the festival encouraged artists to appeal as much to secular audiences as with Christian ones.
FEATURED FOR 2018
Performing Saturday night, Aug. 4th: Featured Music by Shadow Vox!
Debate Between Christians and an Atheist (or Two?) [several times during the festival]
Beginning c. 1998, Anthony Horvath, Daniel Flecknoe, and Joe Shaw have been arguing over: the existence of God, morality, evolution, ‘science’, and, of course, politics. This August, they will meet again in Wisconsin, where they will continue the debate on stage under the hot lights. Click here for bios and more info.
(The intent is to also bring in the ‘fourth’ horseman, from Australia, but that is yet to be finalized.)
Screening of “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” [Friday night; subject to change]
With special guest: producer and director of Gavin Stone, Dallas Jenkins*
