Flom To Open Fall U-Church Series

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Lee University will welcome magician and author Justin Flom on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center to kick off the fall 2017 U-Church series. 

Review for Justin Flom:

Flom differentiates himself from traditional magic by using everyday items like cards, soda, candy, and even cellphones for the majority of his illusions. Flom shares his testimony with large crowds everywhere through the power of illusion. He has performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show three times, along with appearances on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the “TODAY Show,” and the “Rachel Ray Show,” among others. 

He has also starred in SyFy’s “Wizard Wars,” performed on Florida Georgia Line’s 2015 tour, and starred in several Coke commercials. Flom is currently performing throughout the United States and hosting private events for companies such as Coke, Dave Ramsey, and Walmart, to name a few. 

By utilizing social media like Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram, Flom has been able to reach a larger audience and keep magic modern. His Snapchat was featured on Buzzfeed’s “15 Snapchat Enthusiasts That Will Inspire You To Take Better Snaps.” 

The U-Church series will continue Oct. 22 with a concert by 116 Clique members’ KB and Trip Lee. 

KB, also known as Kevin Burgess, has released a mixtape and three albums. KB has toured nationally with Tenth Avenue North and Trip Lee. 

Lee, who has spoken several times for the university’s chapel services, is a rapper and pastor. He has released five albums and authored two books. Lee’s music has been nominated for several Dove awards and three of his albums have debuted at #1 on Billboard Gospel charts. 

U-Church will conclude its fall series Nov. 12 with “An Evening with LeeU Worship.” This event is a unique worship opportunity designed and led by Lee students. Attendees often encounter diverse styles of worship, including music by LeeU Worship, spoken word, dance, art, and Communion. LeeU Worship’s debut album is set to release later this fall. 

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Lindsey Sifferman at lsifferman@leeuniversity.edu for more information on childcare.

Steve Ellison: Blind Crossing

The fact that the Messiah will open the eyes of the blind is a recurring theme of the book of Isaiah and the Gospels.  The Bible clearly describes the person who is lost in their sin as being spiritually blind.  The Bible speaks figuratively of the lost person having scales on his eyes that must be removed before he can come to faith in Christ.  Three years ago, I ...

Liberal Conspiracy Afoot

According to Roy Exum’s Sunday column, there are now upwards of six or seven Democrats in Hamilton County, and all of them have secretly maneuvered their way onto the boards of a couple of dozen local organizations. Unlike Republicans, some of them serve on multiple boards and some of them serve with one another on the same boards. This is outrageous. We all know that boards and ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Words For The Ages

I was probably one of few people in the entire world who didn’t get caught up in the Royal Marriage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry this weekend. I got over having any semblance of ‘pomp and circumstance’ a long time ago and, as a rule, studiously avoid those apt to ‘put on airs and graces.’ By ignoring the magnificent occasion, I made a big mistake and today it is with delight ...
