Machine Gun Preacher coming to Berwick Church

The Real Machine Gun Preacher is coming to Berwick Church of Christ!

Sam Childers life was the subject of the Hollywood movie The Machine Gun Preacher.

Sam Childers, (Machine Gun Preacher) will be at Berwick Church of Christ on Sunday 25th September 2022 at 10 am to share his life story, which was captured in The Machine Gun Preacher motion picture starring Hollywood heart-throb and well know Scotsman, Gerard Butler playing the role of Sam Childers. The film was based on Sam's book 'Another Man's War'.

The movie and the book propelled Sam to an overnight brand that has seen him speak to audiences of 10's of thousands all around the world – not to mention the many TV/film productions he's been asked to be involved in.

It all started with a life of drugs and violence – which involved, at one point, being an armed guard for drug dealers. After almost being killed in a wild brawl Sam decided to turn his life around and embrace a life of faith in God as he fought to free enslaved children in South Sudan and Northern Uganda which started back in 1998.

Since then, Sam has built one of the largest orphanages in Southern Sudan, which has fed and housed more than 1,000 children. With the orphanage finished, Sam began to lead armed missions to rescue children from the Lord’s Resistance Army – which led to villagers calling him The Machine Gun Preacher.

Sam's team now makes around 10,000 meals daily (for feeding programs in East Africa) and houses 380 orphan children (most of whom are victims of some atrocity) 24/7. He's also drilled dozens of wells, built many schools, and has significant projects in South Sudan, Uganda, and Ethiopia.
