Our Father’s House of Worship seven-week Bible study program

TROY – Our Father’s House of Worship LLC in Troy continues its seven-week video-based Bible study series that explores what it could be like in heaven. The series is hosted via DVD by Don Piper, author of the New York Times bestseller “90 Minutes in Heaven,” which has sold more than 3.5 million copies.
Ninety minutes after Piper was declared dead as a result of a devastating head-on collision with an 18-wheeler, he miraculously returned to life.
His experiences prompted him to study what the Bible says about heaven, how to get there, what it’s like and how embracing heaven changes everything while still on earth.
Each week’s session includes about 20 minutes of inspirational video testimony by Piper and a thought-provoking time of discussion.
