The victory by the Kansas City Chiefs may be over, but the impact still is being felt in host city Miami.
More than 100 churches and groups came together on Super Bowl Sunday to kick off a new community outreach initiative called Explore God Miami. Miami-Dade-area residents and visitors are invited to explore answers to common questions people have about God and faith over the next several weeks. Questions such as “Is there a God?” “Why does God allow pain and suffering?” and “Is Christianity too narrow?” will be explored in Sunday services and in casual discussion groups.
“We had a chance to learn about the Explore God outreach during our trip to Miami for Super Bowl LIV, and we were excited about the potential impact the event could have on the South Florida community,” Chiefs President Clark Hunt said. “Explore God Miami presents a unique opportunity to unite a diverse group of people from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and beliefs and tackle some of the most important questions life has to offer. We hope everyone will take advantage of this incredible community event.”
Explore God Miami is the largest evangelistic outreach in Miami since the Billy Graham Crusade in 1949, said James Drake, chairman of the Explore God Miami Steering Committee.
“The initiative has united more churches across denominations and cultural barriers than ever before in our city,” he said. “This will likely become one of the greatest movements of God in Miami in our generation,”
The churches and groups involved represent more than 30 denominations and four languages. People of all faiths and backgrounds are encouraged to attend services or conversation groups to share their perspectives on these big questions.
“Millions bring their questions and struggles to Explore God as they search for truth about God and guidance in their faith journeys,” Explore God President Jamie Radtke said. “Our content and initiatives like Explore God Miami are designed to welcome all people into healthy conversations about God and faith. We’re excited to see the impact on the Miami area, and we’re thankful for the support of Clark and Tavia Hunt.”
