The fastest growing religious group in the Western world is the “nones.” No not the “nuns” but the “nones,” those who do not identify with any religious affiliation. In the United States, the “nones” recently surpassed the Roman Catholics. People are leaving the church. We are losing 3,000+ people a day. Now is time for a new evangelization…a real evangelization.

This series will address the fundamental questions about the fundaments of life. Why are we here? What happens when we die? Journey with Chris Stefanick to uncover the answers.

The Search is an innovative video series that tackles the key questions of every human heart. Whether you’re a practiced inquirer or a jaded skeptic, The Search will speak to you. You may be reassured by some parts and challenged by others.
