Moore to speak in Marion via simulcast event



A Marion woman has made arrangements to bring one of the country?s leading evangelical authors, speakers and Bible study leaders to Marion this Saturday.

Even if it is by electronic means.

Beth Moore, founder of Living Proof Ministries, will appear in Marion as a simulcast of her live presentation in Lubbock, Texas.

The local full-day event will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the USD 408 Performing Arts Center, and end around 4:30 p.m., according to Sarah Spencer, who has headed the effort to bring the simulcast to central Kansas.

?There will be times of praise and worship, and Beth Moore is our speaker for the day,? said Spencer, a member of the Marion Christian Church.

?She speaks on whatever the Holy Spirit lays on her heart,? Spencer added. ?She?s always good. I?ve heard her several times and I?ve never walked away without learning something or being inspired to do something.?

A $15 registration fee is required to attend. For an additional $7, participants will receive a box lunch featuring a sandwich, chips, carrots. cookies and bottled water.

Spencer has attended several Beth Moore events in person and via simulcast. She formed the idea to bring a simulcast to Marion after attending one in Lincoln, Neb.

?When I got home, I wanted to see if there was a location for the simulcast around here, and there wasn?t. I figured we could bring it to Marion. That?s kind of how it got started.?

Spencer has been assisted by a local committee. Though anyone can attend, Moore?s primary audience is women.

?I know at some of the events I?ve been to there were a few brave men who came out,? she said. ?My husband (Doug), every time he hears her on the radio as we?re driving along, he?s like, ?She?s definitely for women.?

?But in all honesty I?ve heard him chuckle a few times, and be like, ?Hmm, that?s interesting.??

Spencer said Moore?s appeal is her honest approach.

?She speaks biblical truth as it relates to her life and how it can relate to all people?s lives,? Spencer said. ?Her goal is see all women experience freedom in Christ, and I think that?s what everybody can really relate to.

?I think we all have some baggage that we kind of need to experience healing from,? she added. ?That?s kind of her life work, to lead people through biblical truth to reach the healing they need.?

The committee has asked participants who want the box lunch to register for one by Sept. 7. Proceeds from the lunches will benefit the Harshman Cancer Crushers, a Relay For Life team.

Registration for the event itself will be accepted even on day it begins, Spencer said. She is hoping to fill the center to capacity.

To register in advance by phone, call 620-382- 2734. To register by e-mail, write Spencer at
