Over 18 Screening - Evening

Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019 at 7:00 PM

Converge Community Church, 590 University Crescent, Winnipeg, MB

Over 18 is a clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and its effects on kids, teens, parents, and porn stars. In addition to interviews with porn producers, ex-porn stars, and academics, directors Jared and Michelle Brock highlight the story of Joseph, a 13-year-old boy who is recovering from a porn addiction that he fell into when he was nine years old. The film compares what porn used to be in the magazine era and what it’s become in the age of the internet, and demonstrates why kids, in particular, are susceptible to addiction. View Trailer

It was recently in the news how children as young as 8 years old are voluntarily sharing nude photos and videos of themselves online. Our hearts break at the thought of this and we desire to partner with people who feel the same!

Child Evangelism Fellowship of Manitoba has been made aware of this horrible situation and we know it is vital that we as Christians take a stand to protect our children! This is why we have chosen the theme of Redemption: Saving the Children for the year.

CEF of Manitoba is intentionally standing in the gap for children and we are asking you to join us. We are partnering with Power to Change and Segue to host a screening called Over 18 which will raise awareness of this issue as well as call on the local government to make a change to legislation to prohibit underage children from accessing pornography.

If you are wanting to partner with us in putting on the screening, contact us at 204.663.3300 or Give a "special gift" towards the screening at: https://www.cefmanitoba.org/donate/

Will you join us?

Important Note In the event that more than 100 guests join us, we will be moving the screening to the University of Manitoba MPR (5 min drive). We will inform registered guests of this change should it be needed via email well in advance.

Plus! We are also hosting this same screening in the morning at the University of Manitoba, see the details at: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/over-18-screening-morning-tickets-56928882821.
