PRESENTATION AND WORSHIP EXPERIENCE WITH HEAVEN IS FOR REAL AUTHOR TODD BURPO AND READ YOU AND ME BAND AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY SEPT. 6, TICKETS ON SALE AUG. 7 

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Todd Burpo, author of the best selling book Heaven is for Real and pastor of Crossroads Wesleyan Church in Imperial, Neb., will speak at Viterbo University at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Burpo will be joined by the acclaimed Read You and Me praise band for both events, which will include a presentation, music concert, and worship experience.

Tickets for the event are $10 for main floor and $6 for balcony seating, and are half price for students. Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7 in the Viterbo box office.

Heaven is for Real is the true story of the four-year-old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who, during emergency surgery, slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. Colton describes his experiences of heaven, deceased relatives, pets, and biblical characters.            

Heaven Is For Real Ministries, Inc. was established in May 2011 due to the overwhelming response to Heaven is for Real. The book has spent 88 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
 

This event is sponsored by Sand Lake Wesleyan Church and is hosted by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership.
