About World Vision Experience

The nationally touring, interactive World Vision Experience exhibit is coming to bring national news headlines to life, raising awareness of sex trafficking, refugees, and child protection in the world’s most fragile and vulnerable places. Bethany is hosting this innovative exhibit as part of its commitment to be involved as a congregation in supporting the greatest needs of our day.

Visitors to the Experience will step into a “global village” contained inside a tractor trailer in the church’s parking lot. Inside they will don headsets and walk through an inspiring 20-minute journey with four people from around the world: Reshma, Ali, Moses, and Junior.  They will walk into the heart of the most pressing causes of our time: human trafficking, the Syrian refugee crisis, and the protection of vulnerable children. The true, life-changing stories within the exhibit will open eyes to untold stories going on around the world and inspire people to follow the example of Jesus by going to the margins to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable children and families.

“World Vision, unfortunately, cannot take thousands of Americans to places like Bangladesh, Syria, or Uganda to personally witness the tragedy of extreme poverty,” said Richard E. Strearns, president and CEO of World Vision, U.S. “So we’ve created this exhibit to enable people to virtually experience the effects of some of the greatest causes of our day and how they can help. No one can do everything, but each of us can do something to help turn the tide against global poverty.”
