We’ll also be contributing for the daily video re-cap which will be posted with the general update on the Tour website, so please make sure to bookmark it. The other authors will also be posting their own news on their blogs:

A big “Thank You” to all those that attended the 2007 Free Methodist Church Bible Quiz Finals at Roberts Wesleyan College this past week. We had an absolute blast with you Friday night! We’ll be posting pics of the concert shortly.

Fantasy Tour Shaping Up!

Posted in Tour Dates on April 21, 2007 by christopherhopper

The Fantastic 4 Fantasy Tour scheduled for this summer is really shaping up! Publisher’s Weekly and Christian Retailing Magazine both picked up the story; John Cooper at Real Armor of God has graciously donated swords and shields to each author for the tour; and both Barnes & Nobel and Borders are rolling out the red carpet for us with booking dates!

Thanks for your continued prayers as we seek to reach the lost with the message of Jesus!


In Brussels

Posted in General, Ministry, On The Road, Overseas, Tour Dates on April 7, 2007 by christopherhopper

Greetings everyone!

Sitting here in our host home in downtown Brussels at a table with our team. I just asked them to start shouting out their favorite parts of , our first day on the EuroTour 2007:

“Taking naps.”


“Leaving me at Customs.” ~Joe Peterson

“Worship was great!”

“I wasn’t nervous on the stage at all. God took care of all my nerves.” ~Abby Damon

“I had a six year old praying over each chair in the church before the meeting last night; it was amazing to watch her work at such aa young age.” ~Kathleen Darling

“Everything seemed so hectic before we started, but it all came together in the end and was so God. On the way back from the place we had dinner, we got lost, and the Holy Spirit helped us get back to the place we were staying.” ~Hannah Damon

“I had my first prophetic word for someone last night, about them being a peace maker. It was amazing to be used by the Lord like that.” ~Gabbi Burt

“Seeing that 16 year old boy get touched by the presence of God at the airport. His mom said it was the first time she ever saw him cry in 16 years.” ~Jason Rodgers

We had a 16 year old boy give his heart to Jesus on the sidewalk outside the airport, prayed for a little girl in a wheelchair on the street, and then 7 more responded to the Gospel message at last night’s meeting. The music team ministered well for being so tired, and the drama team was awesome.

We head out by train to Charleroi this afternoon, just 45 minutes south of Brussels. We’ll have a meeting there and then return in Brussels tonight.

Thanks for your prayers!

Greetings everyone!

I have some huge news that I’ve been biting my tongue about for the last six months. But with any big news, there are a lot of things to get in order before you can say anything.

So, without any further ado, it’s my honor to announce the world’s first Christian Fantasy/Fiction Author Tour, aptly named the “Fantastic 4 Fantasy Book Tour.”

OK…so what’s that? Let me explain.

Late last year, Wayne Thomas Batson and I had a crazy idea (but from fiction authors, what’s new?):

Stick a handful of Christian Fantasy authors from all different publishers in one van and tour the East Coast of the US.

We then approached three other fantasy author acquaintances, Bryan Davis, Donita K. Paul, and Sharon Hinck, and pitched the idea. They all replied with an ecstatic “Yes!” as did their publishers.

The FFT was born.

(Donita will hopefully be with the tour next year, as she had to pull out last minute).

We’ll be hitting 12 cities in 7 states along the East Coast this July. For more information, and to stay updated with news from the road, please check out the Fantasy Fiction Tour website.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
