Becky Fischer Jesus Camp
In Pentecostal and Charismatic congregations, laying on of hands and its derivation, reaching out the hands to someone, are widespread practices. Despite having some issues with the finished product (which prompted claims that she was indoctrinating children), Fischer has steadfastly defended it. In reality, she has promoted her ministry and its work using it as a tool. The camp, which ran for three weeks once a year, was canceled and replaced with different activities.
In 2004, Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady approached Fischer about having her “Kids on Fire” camp outside of Devils Lake, North Dakota, and some of her “Changing the World through Prayer Conference” at Christ Triumphant Church in Lee’s Summit, Missouri (a suburb of Kansas City), where Fischer is ordained, filmed.
Because of its blatantly political subject matter, the movie caused controversy when it made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in the summer of 2006. One scene that was filmed at Christ Triumphant Church, for instance, had a guest speaker who brought a cardboard cutout of George W. Bush and invited the young people gathered there to extend their hands toward him. According to several press reports, the kids appeared to be worshiping him.
Becky Fischer Ministry
According to Fischer, the typical Sunday School is happy to just repeat Bible stories to children for the first twelve years of their lives, which leads to their disinterest in God and the church by the time they are teenagers and their decision to leave the church. Because of this issue in Christianity, she said, “as many as 70% of our own children are leaving the Church and never coming back.” Through her ministry, she investigates how to keep them actively involved in their faith as adults. Christian Zionism is encouraged through Kids in Ministry International, a prevalent practice among Evangelical churches in the United States.
