in:cast events announces The Bible Simulcast Event live from Saddleback Church to churches and small groups across the country on Saturday, March 2. The Bible Simulcast Event features Pastor Rick Warren and series co-executive producers Mark Burnett (Emmy Award winning producer of The Voice, Survivor, The Apprentice, Shark Tank) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) in an exclusive preview of The Bible docudrama, which premiers on The History Channel on Sunday, March 3.  

“in:cast is honored to partner with Mark Burnett, Roma Downey, Saddleback Church, Outreach, and Motive Entertainment on such an important event,” said Chris Thomason, Chief Executive Officer of in:cast events. “This is an incredible opportunity for churches and leaders around the world to engage their church and community in watching The Bible miniseries with their families or small groups and utilizing the resource tools reach their communities.”  

During the simulcast, Warren will give insight into The Bible miniseries and interview co-producers Burnett and Downey about the heart behind the creation of the miniseries and how Biblical accuracies were addressed. The Bible is a 10-hour, five-part docudrama that spans the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, presenting some of its best-known stories.

“Too many ‘Bible’ films end up feeling like documentaries, with stilted dialog, second-class sets, and narration that feels like a lecture. In contrast, this series, draws you into the story from the start. The key to its effectiveness is that it lets the Bible speak for itself, without commentary, excuse or qualification, which makes it unique. This is living history at its best!”

-Dr. Rick Warren, Author, What On Earth Am I Here For?, The Purpose Driven Life

Churches and small groups will learn how Saddleback Church and other churches are using The Bible for outreach and discipleship and how to take advantage of the momentum of The Bible miniseries to attract the community to Easter services, obtain free docudrama resources to help church members reach friends and family, broadcast the full The Bible miniseries at church and launch an after-Easter sermon series and study.

The two-hour simulcast event is broadcasting from host-site locations around the country at 12:30p.m. EDT on March 2, 2013. To find out how to host this simulcast, or attend a simulcast near you, please visit or call 1-888-235-7948.
