Abstract

The context for this project was Park Avenue United Methodist Church in Hamilton, Ohio. Electronic and theatrical forms of visual communication were added to worship to test Paul's methods in Acts 17. This researcher takes the name of project from the biblical story of Paul in Athens. When confronted with many statues to so many gods, Paul speaks to the Athenians about the unknown god and reveals Him to them. This project shows how the use of present day tools can be a means to win people to Christ. This new model of worship is now part of Sunday Services.
