  • Steve Scheibner was the pilot originally scheduled to fly American Airlines flight 11, the plane flown into the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. But he got bumped by a senior pilot and thus his life was spared. Scheibner believes his life was spared to help “change the American culture for the cause of Christ,” and thinks the best way to do that is by connecting with parents. He's been a navy pilot, a pastor, and is a trainer and motivational speaker. He and his wife have courses on parenting, marriage, and discipleship, too!

For women

  • This is the true story of Jesus seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene – a story of tenderness, freedom and purpose. "Magdalena" reveals what can happen when women refuse to live in defeat and choose to discover their real value.



    As you watch, the woman at the well realizes that Jesus is the Messiah, the woman caught in adultery walks away in forgiveness, and the woman healed of bleeding is restored to health, physically and spiritually. These Biblical stories bring into clear focus how much Jesus values and affirms women. Then and now, Jesus reaches out to women in the midst of their struggles and sin.


    Originally released as "Magdalena: Released From Shame", this DVD includes the 1-hour condensed adaptation of the film and the original 82-min. Study guides available at the website. Especially encouraging for women who have been oppressed.
